While fans eagerly await James Bond’s new adventures in the upcoming movie No Time to Die, a new poster for the movie has become the talk of the town. However, it’s not the one starring Daniel Craig’s 007 as you might have guessed. Instead, it’s the one focusing on the villain- Safin, played by Rami Malek, who totally looks the part.

The new poster appeared on the latest tweet by Daniel Richtman. Amidst the fading silhouette of Craig’s James bond are the portraits of the other characters of the movies. However, it’s Rami Malek’s Safin who takes the center stage, looking right at you, his eyes angled with a sinister gaze.
Directed and co-written by Cary Fukunaga, No Time to Die, will be in theatres on April 10 this year. Starring Daniel Craig, Rami Malek, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, and Léa Seydoux among many others, many of the plot details of the movie remain in the hush-hush. This movie, believed to be Craig’s last outing as world’s most high-profile secret agent, shoots ahead 5 years from where Spectre left us to find a retired Bond in Jamaica being talked into action by his friend Felix Leiter to save the world from Safin’s destructive plans. The movie also has an officially confirmed lengthy run-time of 2 hours and 43 minutes.
Getting the Bad Guy
In an interview, Craig revealed that he was hunting for a new villain to fight off and share his last screen-time as Bond with. Revealing that Malek topped his wish-list of people playing the role of the Villain, Craig said, “We lucked out. He was free.”
Armed with an innovative technology that threatens the safety of the world, Malek’s on-screen tussle with the ever-charismatic Bond has left fans squirming on their seats while eagerly waiting for the release.
