The new James Bond trailer debuted today. No Time to Die is set to be in theaters in April 8th, 2020. The trailer looks great, but the return of Blofeld means that I’m going to have to rewatch Spectre again. I’m still not sure exactly what happened in that movie.
To the topic that we actually care about the most at Hooniverse; the cars. Or for me specifically; the SUVs.
We have known that the new Land Rover Defender would be a part of this Bond movie for a while. We didn’t realize though that the Defender would be chasing Bond as he drives an 80-Series Toyota Land Cruiser. The Land Cruiser is a Euro/Australian market truck with a rear tire carrier on the back of the truck. Here’s the frame of Bond in the LC. The side mirror, windshield seal, drip rail, grab handle, and headrests all look right out of a late-90s 80-Series.
The wide shot shows the new Defender chasing him.
The rest of the vehicles in the trailer are pretty great too. The new Double-0 agent played by Lashana Lynch rocks up in a new Aston Martin DBS Superleggera.
Bond stays true to his favorite brand with an Aston Martin Series II V8 Vantage.
There’s a motorcycle stunt that looks bat-shit crazy, but I have no idea what bike that is.
The topper is, of course, an Aston Martin DB5. And this one has a pair of miniguns in the headlights.
Aston has said that a Valhalla supercar is also in the film, but it did not make it into the trailer.
No Time to Die looks like a lot of fun and has none of the Roger Moore campiness. That being said, I kind of miss the campy, Pierce Brosnan, Bond films. Flipping a car back over with the ejector seat is still horrible and amazing at the same time.
I hope No Time to Die is great and that Daniel Craig gets a proper send-off as Bond. The cars do look great though. His Jamaica house is pretty fantastic too. I would watch a Bond episode of House Hunters International.
