And, Daniel Craig, 51, looks dapper as 007 in the first poster for No Time To Die, the 25th chapter of the James Bond film franchise.

Bringing his signature 007 style to the shot, the movie star looked suave in a sleek black tuxedo and bow tie, paired with a crisp white shirt.

No Time To Die is the 25th chapter in the 007 franchise, which will see Daniel make his final outing as the iconic Secret Secret Service agent.

Sam Smith backs Dua Lipa and Elton John for Bond theme

Sam Smith backs Dua Lipa and Elton John for Bond theme Sam Smith wants Dua Lipa or Elton John to follow in his footsteps by recording the next James Bond theme. The British singer did the honours last time around, recording Writing's On The Wall for the 2015's Spectre. And although he thinks Dua's the best contemporary artist to sing the theme for next year's No Time to Die, he suggests Elton should record the track, as it's one of the few things he's not ticked off during his storied career. © Provided by Cover Media Ltd "Everyone is talking about it now," he tells Britain's Hits Radio when discussing the race to be chosen by Bond producers.

The film had previously been given the working title Shatterhand, however the title has since been changed to match Bond's more iconic film titles.

Production finally kicked off in April of this year, though it had already been delayed by several months following the departure of original director Danny Boyle.

But it has suffered a turbulent production process in recent months after Craig suffered a nasty ankle injury while filming a separate chase sequence in Jamaica, the spiritual home of Bond creator Ian Fleming.

'Production will continue whilst Craig is rehabilitating for two weeks post-surgery. The film remains on track for the same release date in April 2020'.

The 007 actor was seen making an emotional speech while standing around a delicious looking Bond-themed cake.

Daniel admitted to his cast and crew that he was 'really quite drunk' before thanking them for 'all their hard work.'

Never foregoing a smile on his face, the hunk confessed: 'I just want to say, and I am really quite drunk now so I won’t go on for long, this has been the best, most wonderful experience I have ever had! C

heered on by his guests, Daniel gushingly continued: 'You have all done the most amazing job. I could not be more proud to work with every single one of you.

'I would like to thank you for this evening, for Barbara (Broccoli), for putting it on. Thank goodness, we did this tonight,' said the star as the camera panned to a yummy looking three-tier casino style Bond cake.

Daniel Craig achieved international fame when chosen as the sixth actor to play Ian Fleming's British secret agent James Bond in the eponymous film series, taking over from Piece Brosnan in 2005. 

It is unclear whether filming for No Time To Die has wrapped for the other actors involved. MailOnline has contacted representatives for James Bond for further comment.

Since Daniel announced he was standing down as James Bond, debate has raged whether the next 007 should be a woman, or black.

And in July, The Mail on Sunday revealed that she will be both – thanks to the intervention of feminist TV writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

In what's been called a 'popcorn-dropping moment', British star Lashana, 31, will be given Bond's licence to kill in the 25th movie in the franchise.

Rafa Nadal marries Mery Perelló! Tennis ace ties the knot with his childhood sweetheart who wore a long-sleeved beaded gown in front of 350 guests including Juan Carlos I in Majorca

  Rafa Nadal marries Mery Perelló! Tennis ace ties the knot with his childhood sweetheart who wore a long-sleeved beaded gown in front of 350 guests including Juan Carlos I in Majorca Rafael Nadal has married his partner of 14 years, Mery Perello, at a castle in Majorca on Saturday. Tennis ace Nadal tied the knot with the 31-year-old insurance worker at British-owned fortress La Fortaleza, with a reported 350 guests invited to a private ceremony, including the former king of Spain.

The story begins with Bond retired in Jamaica. But spymaster M – played by Ralph Fiennes – calls him back in desperation to tackle a new global crisis.

A movie insider said: 'There is a pivotal scene at the start of the film where M says 'Come in 007', and in walks Lashana who is black, beautiful and a woman.

'It's a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond but he's been replaced as 007 by this stunning woman.

'Bond, of course, is sexually attracted to the new female 007 and tries his usual seduction tricks, but is baffled when they don't work on a brilliant, young black woman who basically rolls her eyes at him and has no interest in jumping into his bed. Well, certainly not at the beginning.'

The source added that the phrase 'Bond girls' is now forbidden, saying: 'We were all told that from now on they are to be addressed as 'Bond women'.' 

Dr Swann and Bond's romance, sparked in Spectre, appears to still be going strong in No Time To Die, with the pair sharing a passionate kiss during filming last week. 

No Time To Die has a UK release date of April 3, 2020, and opens in the US on April 8, 2020.

Gallery: The best James Bond movies, ranked (GamesRadar)

Sean Connery wearing a suit and tie:                                          Choosing the best James Bond movies, and ranking them into a list, is tough. They vary in quality wildly and... well, let's just say that some 007 films have aged better than others. It’s like deciding which slightly bigoted uncle you’re going to pair up with for charades at Christmas because, despite sharing a world view that would cause a 4chan moderator to blush, they’re still quite entertaining. And let’s face it, you only see them once a year, and ever since they started dating that new woman they’ve become a little more open minded and even learnt a bit of Spanish. But yes, Bond. We’ve considered all the Bond movies to date, discounted the original Casino Royale because it’s silly, and made this list of the best James Bond movies.                                                                                                                                                        Confusingly, we’ve got Bond 25 on the horizon, now that the director issues have been sorted out, but it’s actually the 26th Bond film. So, below is a list of all 25 current James Bond movies, including Never Say Never Again, which wasn’t made by EON Productions and isn’t considered canon. Except it has Sean Connery in it, and it’s watchable, so it made the cut. It’s way more watchable than most of the Brosnan Bonds. Speaking of which...
