While the current James Bond actor, Daniel Craig, is preparing for his final appearance as the English agent, the first official image for ‘Bond 25’ has been revealed.
Looking appropriately dapper, Craig’s James Bond can be seen sporting a sharp suit, a shiny watch, and some, err, sunlight-stopping sunglasses (because yay for alliteration!). But what’s that in the background? Yes, the eagle-eyed amongst you will recognise that as the same Aston Martin V8 Vantage driven by Timothy Dalton’s Bond in The Living Daylights.
Dressed in a grey suit, Daniel Craig as James Bond is seen in the promotional photo walking in front of the iconic Aston Martin V8 Vantage. The car introduced as “Britain’s First Supercar”, one tenth of a second quicker than the Ferrari Daytona, is the very same V8 Vantage driven by Timothy Dalton as James Bond in the 1987 Bond film ‘The Living Daylights’. Even the registration plate is the same!
Bond 25 will premiere 8th of April 2020 in US theatres, and will be directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, winner of the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series.
