Rami Malek as James Bond Villain Safin in 'No Time to Die' – First Look Revealed!

Daniel Craig's final outing as James Bond has its first trailer, and "No Time to Die" seems a fitting title this time around.

A teaser of No Time To Die launched on Monday. For the starters, we have Daniel Craig as James Bond who can be seen having ditched the trademark suits because winter is coming and instead having opted for cozy navy blue knit sweater.

When filming commenced in April, a source told Page Six, "They don't have a script, there's no title, it is almost five years since the last Bond". Somewhere in the world, a key scientific mind's gone missing and Bond's reputation makes him the one of the few MI6 agents well-equipped to take on the job. With the trailer containing all of the vehicle chases, death-defying stunts, fist throwing and tuxedo wearing that fans of the renowned secret agent have come to expect, we also have confirmation that No Time to Die will see the return of Christoph Waltz's terrorist and perpetual thorn in Bond's side, Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Safin has new and unsafe technology that he plans to use against Bond, making this villain the worst one he will have to face to date.

The film also stars Ana De Amras as Paloma, Ben Whishaw as Q, Lashana Lynch as Nomi, Lea Seydoux as Madeleine Swann and Daniel Craig returning as 007.

"James Bond..." says Safin.

Co-star Rami Malek, who plays the villain Safin, said that although the trailer didn't reveal too much more than a first glimpse of his eerie white-masked face, he gives 007 a run for his money.

EON Productions and Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios have partnered with Universal Pictures on the worldwide release of the 25th James Bond film.

Okay, so I guess the rumours were true: Christoph Waltz's Blofeld is back.

No Time to Die was originally penned by longtime franchise writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade after Boyle and Hodge's exit, before Scott Z. Burns (Contagion, The Bourne Ultimatum) and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Killing Eve, Fleabag) were brought in to punch it all up.
