Parentology loves technology and when it comes to movies showcasing mind-blowing, up-to-the-moment innovations, James Bond movies deliver. So we were thrilled to receive the opportunity to showcase the latest installment of the film series via the No Time To Die trailer being released today (watch below).
The 25th Bond movie, No Time To Die is an MGM/Universal production starring Daniel Craig as 007 himself. Bringing on villainy is Oscar-winner Rami Malek, in the role of Safin. Also on board for what’s rumored to be Craig’s last stint in the Bond role: Léa Seydoux as Madeleine Swann, Lashana Lynch as Nomi, Ana de Armas in the role of Paloma and Ben Whishaw in a role we revere here at Parentology: Q.
Beyond releasing the film’s official trailer and posters (pictured above), as presented here, the studio is pretty tight-lipped about what fans can expect.
Here’s what was divulged: Bond, who’s officially left active service, has his peaceful retirement disrupted when an old CIA friend, Felix Leiter, played by Jeffrey Wright, turns up asking for help. “The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.”
As for a tranquil retirement spot, Jamaica does seem to be lacking based on this footage from the film.
And though we’re itching to check out the tech, this footage of the Land Rover New Defender featured in No Time To Die did get our engines revved (pun intended).
Not sure if No Time To Die will be appropriate for your child to see? Check out Common Sense Media’s ratings before heading to the theatre. Here’s the policy the company abides by when advising families about entertainment media accessible to kids:
“Because media profoundly affects our kids’ social, emotional, and physical development, Common Sense Media rates media based on both age appropriateness and, for digital media, learning potential. We rely on developmental criteria from some of the nation’s leading authorities to determine what content is appropriate for which ages. And research on how kids learn from media and technology informs our learning ratings. Our goal is to give you trustworthy information so that you can decide what works for your family. We know every family and every kid is different — but all families need information to make great media choices.”
Though Common Sense Media doesn’t have a rating out yet for the April 10, 2020 release of Not Time To Die, a look at past Bond films shows an average ranking of +14 age-wise and three stars for “Just Fine, Solid” entertainment. Hooray for high-speed action, fast cars and yes, villainous technology!
And without further ado, here’s the trailer:
