Actor Daniel Craig walked the red carpet for the final time as James Bond in rain-swept London on Tuesday, at the star-studded but much-delayed world premiere of the latest superspy blockbuster, “No Time To Die”.
British star Craig’s fifth and final outing in the franchise is hitting big screens after its release was repeatedly postponed during the coronavirus pandemic.
Royal couples Prince Charles and Camilla and Prince William and Kate were also at the premiere at London’s historic Royal Albert Hall.
Charles talked with the stars, shaking hands with Craig having trodden the sodden red carpet.
The film is part of a backlog of major productions held back by distributors during the pandemic, hitting cinemas hard, and forcing some new films to be streamed.
The release will be in cinemas only, with struggling theatres hoping Bond will lure back crowds
