The first trailer for No Time To Die, the 25th James Bond film, has been revealed, giving fans a peek at the latest instalment in the blockbuster series.

Daniel Craig reprises his role as James Bond, but the spy is no longer 007 after retiring with Madeleine Swann, played by Lea Seydoux, at the end of 2015’s Spectre.

In the trailer, he comes face to face with Nomi, the woman who has replaced him as the spy with the licence to kill, played by Captain Marvel star Lashana Lynch.

The footage from the highly anticipated film also marks the return of Christoph Waltz as Ernst Blofeld, is now under lock and key and is chained up behind glass.

As Ralph Fiennes' M cautions: "The world is arming faster than we can respond," there are only brief looks at Rami Malek's mysterious villain Safin, who seems to be heavily scarred and covering much of his face with a white mask.

There is also mystery in the footage when Swann appears with Nomi and Bond is shocked to see them together and also high-octane stunts, when Bond leaps off a huge bridge swinging from a rope and engages in a thrilling motorcycle chase over rooftops.

The trailer ends with Bond in driver's seat of the Aston Martin taking heavy gun fire but protected by bulletproof glass, before he releases huge machine guns from the headlights.

No Time To Die, directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and co-written by Fleabag's Phoebe Waller-Bridge, is released in UK cinemas on April 2 2020.
