In the Several long months until its release, No time to die It was described as one last outing for Daniel Craig period Like James Bond. Since he first took on the role in 2007 casino royale, Craig’s time with the character has been an amazing time, and it was interesting to see how it would turn out on the ground this time after it seemed to be over. ghost.
In an interview full of spoiler diverseCraig, director Cary Joji Fukunaga, and producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael J. Wilson talk about how the ending was crafted and Craig’s message at the end.
At the end of the movie, James Bond dies tangibly. After being injected with a biological weapon that will specifically kill his beloved Madeleine Swan and any of her relatives, including their young daughter Mathilde, Bond orders an air strike on the stranded island, ensuring that the virus never recurs. As heroic as it is, Craig’s Bond fate is the first in its 59-year movie history.
the end It’s partly because that’s Craig’s way He wanted his time as a character to go. After the premiere of Berline casino, He spoke with producer Broccoli about his future with the series. When he learned he had four movies on his contract, he knew how he wanted out. I went, ‘Oh, okay. Can I kill him in the last one? Craig recalls. “It’s the only way I can see for myself ending everything and making it like this was my term, someone else could come in and take over.”
Fortunately, Broccoli accepted Craig’s proposal, even if Craig himself didn’t bring it up again until this specific movie. For Wilson, who has been a producer on every Bond movie since 1972 Moonraker, It makes sense for the character to come out that way. In Bond novels From Russia with love And You only live twice, Creator Ian Fleming nearly killed the spy, which gave this move some precedent. As for the movies, Wilson and the team knew this would eventually come. Ultimately, he said, “the possibilities chase you.” Bond was so used to being lucky and living by the skin of his teeth that everyone considered it “emotionally important” for fans to realize that a character’s signature luck could only go so far.
Bond’s death was already determined by the time Fukunaga was directed, but the method was left entirely to him. Fukunaga recalls how there were multiple iterations, including Bond being shot with an unknown bullet. Objectively speaking, Fukunaga found it convenient, but both he and Craig knew it had to be a situation he couldn’t get out of, with the actor emphasizing that “it has to have weight… If we didn’t have that weight, I don’t think we would have been.” We’ll do it. We would have found another way to end it.”
