The figure of the secret agent has become a classic in the Western imagination. With the presence of the Cold War in the second half of the 20th century, this figure acquired a fundamental value: to protect his country from possible attacks from the enemy and, by extension, from the entire world. Ian Fleming knew how to see it and created a series of exciting novels, those of the 007 agent of the British secret service, James Bond . The agent returns in Bond 25.
That’s where the James Bond saga movies came from. The first, in 1962, nine years after the release of Fleming’s first book ( James Bond vs. Dr.) starring a Sean Connery who for many is the eternal image of Bond. Then came George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and, since 2006, Daniel Craig . The latter will repeat in this Bond 25 after having declared on numerous occasions that he would never play agent 007 again

“I needed a break” (from the saga), “I just want to leave as soon as high and I can’t wait to do it” (leaving the saga) and “ I would rather break this glass and cut my wrists” (before going back to playing Bond) were some of his statements before putting himself back in the shoes of the most secret agent. famous in the world.

release date The Bond 25 release date will be April 8, 2020 . At least if there is no problem in production. In fact, it would not be the first time that it has been delayed. The original date was at the end of 2019.
What is Bond 25 about?
To begin with, you have to know that it is not going to be called Bond 25, if not that this is the denomination with which they have worked to create expectation around the film (the 25th of James Bond). The safest thing is that the project will end up being called Shatterhand , one of the aliases of the character played by Christoph Waltz in Spectre, the last 007 movie that has been released.
What will be the plot of the film is being treated as a secret of utmost importance. Nothing is known but it begins with a retired James Bond in Jamaica, where he enjoys a life without the problems of being a secret agent in the service of His Majesty. There, everything seems to indicate that he claimed an old friend who works at the CIA, to help him complete a mission…. To know what he plus he has prepared for us, we will have to wait about a year.
The cast of Bond 25
In addition to the regular cast of the series, namely: Daniel Craig as James Bond , Ralph Fiennes as M, Ben Wishaw as Q and Naomie Harris as Moneypenny; The names of Lea Seydoux as Madeleine Swann , Jeffrey Wright as Felix Leiter and Billy Magnusen will be added. The latter with an undiscovered role.
But without a doubt the most spectacular addition and the one that has raised the most expectations in the world of cinema and among James Bond fans is that of Rami Malek, the multi-award winning actor for being Freddy Mercury in the biopic of the Queen singer. Malek will play the latest supervillain Daniel Craig will have to face in his journey as James Bond after Mads Mikkelsen, Mathieu Amalric, Javier Bardem and Christoph Waltz.

It is not the latest addition. A James Bond movie is going to have a Spanish presence again. In this case -after Javier Bardem- it will be Ana de Armas. With hardly any papers in our country but knocking at the gates of heaven in the international film market. It’s no nonsense to become a Bond girl for anyone’s career. As it is also an important leap for actors like Lashana Lynch or David Dencik, even if they have appeared in big movies before.
And… who will direct the cast of this Bond 25?
After Sam Mendes left the saga , in principle with Daniel Craig, the bar could not be lowered much in the direction if one wanted to be up to the latest films that they have scenes as spectacular as the sequence shot of almost 10 minutes with which Spectre opens.
The choice is a good bet: Cary Joji Fukunawa. This director has a good handful of films to his credit, including Beasts of no Nation or Pride and Prejudice, but he achieved fame directing a police series, True Detective . Specifically -of the entire first season- the sequence shot of the fourth chapter. So what he could do with a saga like Bond and a top budget can be truly incredible.
Bond 25 or Shatterhand has all the ingredients to be a historical film in the James Bond universe. What happens after Daniel Craig will be seen . For now, while the producers are considering names like Tom Hardy to replace the current 007, it remains to sit and wait for new news. The countdown has already begun. Less than a year left.
