“James Bond has left active service. His peace is short-lived when Felix Leiter, an old friend from the CIA, turns up asking for help, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.”
After an extremely successful advertising campaign on “SKYFALL” & “SPECTRE” Empire Design have been retained by EON for the latest Bond spectacular “No Time To Die” & it’s fair to say they have hit the target again. This original “April 2020” advance one-sheet for Cary Joji Fukunaga‘s Bond film has a real exciting feel to it, with Bond (Daniel Craig) combat ready poised for action and offset by the familiar ‘007’ logo. These hard to find “April 2” advance posters are extremely sought after and collectable, not only because they look great but are now dated wrongly, with the release being postponed (due to Covid 19) until 2021. Originally rolled (as issued) this stunning example displays and presents to excellent effect with only the minimal of handling wear. Guaranteed original this represents a highly desirable piece of James Bond movie memorabilia for what is reported to be Craig’s last appearance as the spy with a ‘Licence to Kill’.
Trivia: First James Bond movie to feature all the characters of Q, Felix Leiter, Miss Moneypenny, and M since Licence to Kill (1989), which is an interval of about thirty-one years.

James Bond: No Time To Die Movie Poster
“Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.”
Reportedly, Daniel Craig is expected to going to be dramatically cutting back on doing any dangerous stunt work in “No Time To Die”, due to his age and his injury on Spectre (2015). The UK ‘Mirror’ newspaper has reported a source has said: “It’s a big bone of contention. Rachel [wife Rachel Weisz] doesn’t want him in agony again. None of his aches and pains have gone away completely” and “there’s a legacy to all these injuries and she lives with them. They’ve come to an agreement about how hard he will push himself and he is pulling back from the edge this time. It’s a prerequisite.” Craig has said: “I knackered my knee and had surgery, I’ve had my right shoulder reconstructed, my other knee operated on and my thumb got hurt.” Gary Powell, stunt co-ordinator for Craig, added that it will be hard to get him to slow down: “He’s intrepid. It’s pretty hard to stop him. But he lives with the injuries and those aches and pains stay with you long after filming.” Reportedly, a source has said that Weisz has lost sleep at night and cannot fathom seeing her husband potentially getting injured on a big action movie shoot which she has allegedly nick-named “the boxing ring”.
“No Time To Die” will be Daniel Craig‘s fifth and final appearance as James Bond. Scheduled to be released in 2020, the movie will also be Craig’s fourteenth year in tenure as James Bond since his first in Casino Royale (2006). This will, by tenure, make Craig the longest running actor playing James Bond in the official series since the late Roger Moore‘s era between the early 1970s to the mid 1980s, which ran for twelve years, between Live and Let Die (1973) and A View to a Kill (1985). By film count Craig will come third, after Sean Connery with six and Roger Moore with seven (though Connery also has seven if unofficial film Never Say Never Again (1983) is counted).
