Watch the Official Bond 25 Announcement Livestream!
Ahead of every James Bond film, EON Productions has typically held a press conference introducing the new movie and its cast to the world. Now, for the upcoming Untitled 25th James Bond movie, the producers and stars will reveal the new movie from an “Iconic 007 location.” You can watch the full video in the player below!
Returning cast members for the next James Bond adventure include Daniel Craig as Agent 007, Ralph Fiennes (Skyfall), Lea Seydoux (Spectre), Naomie Harris (Moonlight) and Ben Whishaw (Paddington 2). We also know that Italy will be one of the shooting locations for the 25th series in the James Bond franchise.
Bond 25 has seen its share of problems over the past year. It was initially to be directed by Danny Boyle, who exited the project abruptly this summer over creative differences. This delayed production while the studio was forced to search for new directors, before eventually landing on Cary Joji Fukunaga, best known for directing the first season of HBO’s True Detective.
EON Productions and Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios recently reached an agreement with Universal Pictures to partner on the worldwide release of the 25th James Bond film. The superspy’s previous outing, Spectre, opened in U.S. theaters on November 16, 2015. The film earned $200 million domestically and $680.6 million internationally, for a worldwide total of $880.7 million.
The as-yet-untitled Bond 25 is due to hit theaters on April 8, 2020.
