The Jamaica Tourist Board has released exclusive, behind-the-scenes footage of the latest James Bond film, No Time To Die. The video showcases some of the locations shot around the island, as well as cast and crew of the film talking about their experiences filming in Jamaica.
Jamaica is the birthplace of Agent 007, where author Ian Fleming created the character, and wrote all the Bond novels. The island also features in the first James Bond film, Dr. No (1962), as well as in Live And Let Die (1973).
007 returns to Jamaica in the latest Bond flick. Jamaica is a key location in the newest story in the spy thriller series. James Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life on the island. His peace is short-lived when his old friend from the CIA, Felix Leiter, turns up asking for help. You know how that’s going to go.
The Jamaica Tourist Board says that the country is delighted to play a significant role in the 25th James Bond film.
Olivia Grange, Jamaica’s Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, comments, “It’s really something we have dreamt about and we are happy that it’s going to be a reality.”
No Time to Die is the final time actor Daniel Craig will play the role of Bond, so the movie has even more sentimental value for fans and the James Bond legacy.
“Bond for us means we are a place for beginnings, but we are also a place for great endings,” said Edmund Bartlett, Minister of Tourism for Jamaica.
No Time To Die will be released in theatres on 08OCT in Canada.
