Cary Fukunaga has been chatting about the ending of the latest James Bond film, No Time To Die: with spoilers, as you might expect.

Spoilers for No Time To Die lie ahead.

The dust has finally settled on the release of the 25th James Bond movie, No Time To Die, with the film now available around the world on home formats. As such, the cast and crew have been doing  fresh round of interviews to promote the film, and the subject of the film’s ending has come up.

Spoilers from this point onwards.

The denouement of No Time To Die sees the end of James Bond too, with Craig’s 007 killed on screen. But then come the end of the film, there’s the tease that ‘James Bond will return’. Director Cary Fukunaga has been chatting to Empire about this, and has absolutely confirmed that Craig’s Bond met his maker in the massive explosion we get at the end of the movie.

“I wasn’t trying to be obtuse with it. I wanted to be clear with it. But I wanted it to be tasteful”, he explained, drawing a parallel with another film we don’t want to spoil even though you’ve likely seen it. “We wanted to show that he wasn’t going to jump down a sewer at the last second. So that wider shot of the island being pummelled was a mixture of macro and micro. The full effect is, ‘yes, he’s gone, but he succeeded in making sure none of [the] weapons would go on into the future’”.

Which should clear all that up.

007 producer Barbara Broccoli has already confirmed that the search for the new James Bond begins in earnest next year. Until then, No Time To Die is available on disc and on demand from this week…
