Fans of James Bond can’t wait to see him in action again for No Time To Die. Unfortunately, the movie’s original release date of April 3 has been changed to November 25. While fans are forced to wait a few more months, these facts about the film will entertain them.

Who’s Rocking The Theme Song?

Bond fans know the films have had some amazing theme songs. From Paul and Linda McCartney’s “Live and Let Die” to Adele’s “Skyfall,” the theme songs have become pillars of the franchise. For No Time To Die, rising pop singer Billie Eilish sings the theme song. Released on February 13, “No Time To Die” peaked at number 16 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The track also topped the charts in countries such as Scotland and Hong Kong. At the age of 18, Eilish is the youngest person to work on a Bond theme.

Eilish’s brother Finneas O’Connell, who produced the song, got the tune done in three days while on tour. “In your career, there are few things that are as desirable as doing a Bond song, and we did not take the opportunity lightly. And we really just tried to work as hard as we could to prove ourselves worthy of that,” he told BBC Breakfast.

It’s Gonna Be A Long Time

No Time To Die has the honor of being the longest-running Bond film ever. The film is slated to run for 163 minutes, which is nearly three hours long. The second-longest Bond film was 2015’s Spectre, which ran for 148 minutes. The shortest film in the franchise also involves actor Daniel Craig, as 2008’s Quantum of Solace clocked in at 106 minutes.

An Old Friend Returns

Felix Leiter, who is played by Jeffrey Wright, makes his first appearance in a Bond film since Quantum of Solace. The trailer finds him asking Bond for help in discovering a kidnapped scientist. While talking to the New York Times, Wright discussed his friendship with Craig. “I see him every once in a while, but not terribly often. Brooklyn’s a small place, but we’re at the same time both reasonably busy dad-like guys,” he told the publication. Wright first portrayed Leiter in 2006’s Casino Royale. This was the character’s first appearance in a Bond film since 1987’s The Living Daylights.

Masking The Truth

For Rami Malek, his character Safin rocks a white mask to cover vicious scars. While everything else about the character is under wraps, Craig is pleased to work with the Oscar winner. “When it came down to casting this part, you have a wish-list of people you want to play it, and he was at the top of the list. We lucked out. He was free,” Craig told Esquire.

A Score To Settle

While Dan Romer was picked to score the film last summer, he exited the project at the end of 2019. Fortunately, the start of 2020 revealed Hans Zimmer as the film’s new composer. “I’m beyond excited that Hans is scoring ‘No Time To Die.’ The music of Bond has always been iconic and I’ve already witnessed Hans adding his touch of genius to the Bond legacy,” director Cary Joji Fukunaga said in a press statement. This is the first time in Bond history a composer has changed during post-production.

One Last Hurrah

No Time To Die marks Craig’s final performance as Bond. For the actor, this film is the perfect way to end his time as the iconic character. “I’m really…I’m okay. I don’t think I would have been if I’d done the last film and that had been it. But this, I’m like… Let’s go. Let’s get on with it. I’m fine,” he told GQ.
