If there's one thing we've come to learn after nearly 60 years of James Bond films, it's that this franchise exudes all things glamorous. And the premiere for No Time to Die was no exception.
The September 28th premiere took place at the Royal Albert Hall in London, England, and featured a star-studded list of red carpet appearances, including famed actors and actresses and members of the British Royal Family. Just like the multi-million dollar project, the premiere event offered a taste of the luxurious life of the James Bond world, including elite guests and some of the finest fashion available.
Daniel Craig and his fellow cast members were joined by the likes of Billie Eilish, who brought her Grammy-winning talents to the WGM franchise in performing the title track for the 2021 release. Also on the red carpet were Prince William and Prince Charles, accompanied by their wives. The Royal guests were also amidst industry big names such as Hans Zimmer, Judi Dench, and Jason Momoa.
Among the countless 007 premieres that have taken place since the first installment in 1962, this one stood out as a special occasion for many reasons. Not only was the film postponed twice due to COVID-19, but No Time to Die marked the fifth and final 007 film with Daniel Craig. The 53-year-old British actor has been the face of the franchise since his 2006 debut in Casino Royale but is stepping away after 15 successful years. And what better way to commemorate his achievements than to finally reunite with fellow castmates on the red carpet. "It's such a great relief," Craig shared with Reuters. "It was so important to me to come and celebrate with all the other cast and crew and to get it into the cinemas, and we're here."
And celebrate they did. This star-studded red carpet event looked as though it was a scene from a James Bond film itself and celebrated the ritz and the glam that has become synonymous with this legendary cinematic franchise. Check back soon for more industry updates coming your way.
