British actor Daniel Craig has walked the red carpet for the final time as James Bond in a rainy London, at the star-studded but much-delayed world premiere of No Time To Die, the 25th film in a series that has been running for more than 50 years.
Craig’s fifth and final outing is finally hitting cinema screens after its release was repeatedly postponed as the coronavirus pandemic swept the world.
The release will be in cinemas only, with the struggling industry hoping the film will lure crowds back.
“I’m greatly relieved, we make Bond movies for the cinema,” Craig, dressed in a pink velvet tuxedo jacket, told broadcaster Sky News on the red carpet on Tuesday.
Reflecting on 15 years of playing the spy known as 007, Craig said: “I genuinely don’t have any bad memories, but I think it’s going to take about another 15 years to unpick all this.”
