A new trailer for the upcoming James Bond movie has been released, and it's as thrilling as you'd expect.

Daniel Craig returns for the 25th Bond movie No Time To Die for the fifth time, alongside Ralph Fiennes and Ben Whishaw as their respective characters M - head of MI6 - and Q - Bond's MI6 colleague who outfits the agent with the latest gadgets and weapons.

No Time To Die is now set to be released in November after being delayed earlier this year due to government coronavirus restrictions.

"Bond is not on active service when we start the film, so he is actually enjoying himself in Jamaica," she said. "We consider Jamaica Bond's spiritual home. He starts his journey here. We built an extraordinary house for him. We've got quite a ride for Mr Bond and no title unfortunately."
