No Time to Die poster competition announced

No Time to Die teaser poster. Apparently, the powers that be want something better.

No Time to Die is seeking “the brightest and the best artists, illustrators to come up with a poster design for 007,” star Daniel Craig says in a video that’s embedded in a post from the official James Bond account on Twitter.

“We are looking for bold, brave options that capture the essence of James Bond,” he added. “We cannot wait to see what you come up with.”

Well, that’s a twist.

In the “old days” (1960s and ’70s), Bond film posters were known for colorful illustrations, especially for the likes of Thunderball, You Only Live Twice and On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.

More recently, Bond posters tended to be photo-based, in particular, 2012’s Skyfall, which had a figure of Craig on his back shooting with a 007 logo in the background.

THIS WEBSITE has additional information about the competition.

“As James Bond returns for his 25th adventure, EON Productions, MGM, Universal Pictures International and United Artists Releasing want young creators to make their own mark on the iconic visual history of the James Bond franchise,” according to that website. “Be inspired by all the content on this hub, and submit your artwork to the brief below!”

Good luck to all those who wish to enter the competition. Here’s the tweet from the official 007 Twitter feed.
