The First Full Trailer For Bond 25: No Time To Die Has Dropped
The film marks Craig's fifth time playing the iconic spy, but the trailer also introduces us to some new characters too.
We'll also be seeing some familiar characters alongside Bond, such as Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, Ben Whishaw as Q, Léa Seydoux as Madeleine Swann, Jeffrey Wright as Felix Leiter and Christoph Waltz as Ernst Stavro Blofeld.
Per the official synopsis: "Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA 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."

Although there's been plenty of speculation over who's the next 'Bond Girl', a significant share of the chatter has pointed towards the potential for a woman to take on the 007 mantle. The new trailer confirms that Lashana Lynch's Nomi is also a 00 agent - and isn't afraid to stand up to Bond.
Moneypenny actress Naomie Harris did reveal that No Time To Die will see a shift in the franchise in terms of the representation of women.
In conversation with The Guardian, she said: "In Bond 25 you have four strong, intelligent women who are responsible for driving the plot forward. They've never had that in Bond before."
On the topic of the evolution of Bond's character, she added: "He's not disrespecting women, he's not after a woman because of how attractive she looks and what quality lay she is. He's genuinely in a relationship with a woman he respects, loves and cherishes."
It looks like No Time To Die is set to bring the film into the modern era, with Killing Eve's Phoebe Waller-Bridge assisting with this shift after joining the writing team.
As for whether we'll be seeing a female bond in the future, there are plenty of candidates who are up for the job.
No Time To Die will hit UK cinemas on 2 April 2020.
