Daniel Craig Bids Farewell to Bond in “No Time to Die” Home Video Release

After 15 years playing James Bond – longer than any other actor – Daniel Craig is finally stepping down from the role that made him an international superstar. No Time to Die finally opened in theaters in October after years of delays. It earned a respectable $150 million domestically, but did much better across the globe, earning more than $700 million total. Only F9 has made more money among Hollywood productions.

Already available on PVOD, No Time to Die will arrive on home video in time for the holidays. The Collector's Edition high-def release comes packed with bonus features. These include behind-the-scenes pieces on the big car chase and the practical stunts. “A Global Journey” explores the breathtaking locations, while “Designing Bond” goes in-depth on its impeccable costume work. Serious 007 fans will want to nab the 4K UHD release, which includes the exclusive 45-minute doc Being James Bond, as Daniel Craig discusses his tenure as the titular agent from 2006's Casino Royale until now.

No Time to Die reports for duty on December 21.


About Kip Mooney

Kip Mooney
Like many film critics born during and after the 1980s, my hero is Roger Ebert. The man was already the best critic in the nation when he won the Pulitzer in 1975, but his indomitable spirit during and after his recent battle with cancer keeps me coming back to read not only his reviews but his insightful commentary on the everyday. But enough about a guy you know a lot about. I knew I was going to be a film critic—some would say a snob—in middle school, when I had to voraciously defend my position that The Royal Tenenbaums was only a million times better than Adam Sandler’s remake of Mr. Deeds. From then on, I would seek out Wes Anderson’s films and avoid Sandler’s like the plague. Still, I like to think of myself as a populist, and I’ll be just as likely to see the next superhero movie as the next Sundance sensation. The thing I most deplore in a movie is laziness. I’d much rather see movies with big ambitions try and fail than movies with no ambitions succeed at simply existing. I’m also a big advocate of fun-bad movies like The Room and most of Nicolas Cage’s work. In the past, I’ve written for The Dallas Morning News and the North Texas Daily, which I edited for a semester. I also contributed to Dallas-based Pegasus News, which in the circle of life, is now part of The Dallas Morning News, where I got my big break in 2007. Eventually, I’d love to write and talk about film full-time, but until that’s a viable career option, I work as an auditor for Wells Fargo. I hope to one day meet my hero, go to the Toronto International Film Festival, and compete on Jeopardy. Until then, I’m excited to share my love of film with you.
