No Time To Die: Director Cary Fukunaga Finally Reveals James Bond’s Fate

No Time To Die‘s director Cary Fukunaga has finally revealed the true fate of James Bond after that wild conclusion in the film. Fukunaga spoke to the Empire Magazine regarding the creative choice for his Bond film. While many fans were shocked by Fukanaga’s decision to have James Bond meet his end at the climax of the movie. While some people were shocked, Fukunaga clearly wanted the finality of Daniel Craig’s choice to land at that very moment. Even with airtight moments like these, many James Bond fans still hope that there can be some sort of redemption. Well, according to the director, there will be no escape from that explosion. In order to have a better future for his daughter and the world, Bond had to make his sacrifice play. It does make a lot of sense in the film’s context but will be discussed among fans for years to come.

Here’s what Fukanaga said to the publication:

“I wasn’t trying to be obtuse with it,” he says. “I wanted to be clear with it. But I wanted it to be tasteful. We didn’t want that shot in Terminator 2 where you see Sarah Connor turning into bones. But we wanted to show that he wasn’t going to jump down a sewer at the last second. So that wider shot of the island being pummelled was a mixture of macro and micro. The full effect is, ‘Yes, he’s gone, but he succeeded in making sure none of that weapons would go on into the future.'”

Daniel Craig also talked about his James Bond Future

Craig didn’t mince his words when it came to No Time To Die and his future with the James Bond franchise. While it was intended to be his swan song, he revealed as much in the press tour for the film. On the Official James Bond Podcast, he went on to dissect that resolution.

“There were lots of different ideas that came and went and some of it stuck. The through-line of this is family [and] love, plus the fact we had an end so it was about hanging the film off that,” Craig explained. He went on to describe the movie’s ending as “really very, very satisfying.”

Producer Michael G Wilson chimed in, “I think all of us discussed that it seemed like a situation that we could tackle for the first time in the Bond series. Daniel had said, after the fourth one, he didn’t want to come back and Barbara [Broccoli] got a hold of him and said, ‘Look, there’s something more to be told here, and we should finish this out,’ and I think this was the fitting way to do it.”
