New NTTD trailer emphasizes action, large stakes

If you consider a trailer to be a spoiler, then leave now.

The new No Time to Die trailer debuted today. It emphasizes action and large stakes for the story.

Specifically, the 25th James Bond film is back to “saving the world” (or a substantial piece of it).

At one point, agent Nomi (Lashana Lynch) says, “He’ll kill millions.” Bond (Daniel Craig) says, “If we don’t do this, there will be nothing left to save.”

Saving the world, at one time, was old hat in the Bond film series, with such films as You Only Live Twice, The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker. Even somewhat smaller scale films such as A View to a Kill, GoldenEye and Tomorrow Never Dies had storylines where the lives of millions were at stake.

The Daniel Craig era hasn’t gone down that path. While there was a lot of mayhem, the stakes involved preventing money from getting to terrorists, water rights, a grudge against M (Judi Dench) and being able to observe people.

The new trailer also demonstrates, briefly, that a special aircraft shown in a television ad that aired during the Super Bowl has even more capabilities. And there are references to past Craig films.

You can judge for yourself below if you haven’t seen it already.

UPDATE (8:02 a.m.): Around the 1:00-mark of the Italian trailer, Bond appears to refer to Nomi as “007.” h/t Jack Lugo, who spotted a tweet from @thricechampion. I’m advised the same thing is in the Spanish trailer.
