James Bond arrives with No Time to Die in trailer for latest film

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. 

Not Campy

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.

    1. Definitely not LC80 headlights in the wide shot you posted. A Prado would tally with the rear mounted spare, LC’s have them underneath, at least as standard.

      Definitely no campiness in the trailer, presumably the film won’t be devoid of all humour even if it seems fairly dark. This must be the most sequel-ish of all Bond films with so many returning characters.

      I wonder if the motorbike stunt is Robbie Maddison?

  1. I’ll likely watch this movie when it comes out (I was a fan of the Connery Bond films when I was a kid, so I feel obligated), and part of the allure is definitely the cars. Daniel Craig isn’t as suave as Connery, but is definitely edgier and grittier, and he pulls off a better James Bond than Moore or Brosnan. Craig did lose some of my respect, though, when it was revealed he couldn’t drive the manual-shift DB5 in Casino Royale. He’s either since learned how, or his stunt double manages those scenes.

    As a side observation, I’ve noticed that Craig and Jeremy Renner (aka Marvel’s Hawkeye) are starting to look very similar as they age.

    1. Also, is that a late-70s V8 Vantage in one shot of the trailer? That’s another one of my childhood poster cars.
