No Time to Die
Edge-of-the-seat action scenes, exotic locales, and drool-worthy cars are synonymous with the master British spy James Bond. And 007, played by Daniel Craig for the final time, is all set to grace our home screens after a huge launch in theatres. No Time to Die sees Bond return from his retirement courtesy of his CIA friend to help rescue a kidnapped scientist. Rami Malek, Lashana Lynch, Léa Seydoux, and Ralph Fiennes also star.
