Daniel Craig’s final outing as James Bond
Played for the last time by Daniel Craig, James Bond is quietly enjoying his retirement in Jamaica when he is called upon for help by an old friend from the CIA. Teaming up with Bond will be new 00 agent Nomi (played by Captain Marvel star Lashana Lynch), who has no intention of letting the international man of mystery take over. Instead, the pair will have to work together, having both been assigned to the mission of rescuing a scientist kidnapped by a mysterious villain, played by none other than Rami Malek, who won the Best Actor Oscar in 2019 for his portrayal of Freddie Mercury in the movie Bohemian Rhapsody. Another exciting bit of news eagerly awaited by fans of the franchise was who would be singing the theme song played over the credits. Of course, we now know that honor has been given to Billie Eilish, the 18-year-old singer who made music history by winning all four of the biggest prizes at the Grammy Awards in just one night.
