On top of some moments that we've already seen glimpse of in No Time To Die, quite a bit of context is given into some of those snippets from the past.

In a new featurette for No Time To Die titled Meet Safin, we get a more introspective look at Malek as Safin and what he's trying to bring to the table as a Bond villain.

"What I really wanted from Safin was to make him unsettling, thinking of himself as being heroic", says Malek in the video. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the Central Intelligence Agency turns up asking for help. The new trailer gives hints about Safin's mission.

That "mysterious villain armed with risky new technology" is Safin, played by Rami Malek.

Oscar-winning actor Rami Malek has offered a peek into his villainous character of Safin in upcoming James Bond adventure, No Time To Die, in the latest trailer of the film released on Monday.

Explaining the character, director Cary Joji Fukunaga said: "What he wants and what he is willing to do, makes him a very frightening character, both personally to Bond and on a global level". No Time to Die was originally going to open in April, but of course, the coronavirus changed that.

Meanwhile, No Time To Die releases in the United Kingdom on November 12 and in the USA on November 20. Because while many theaters in the country reopened recently, the less-than-great box office numbers for Tenet have studios running scared and rethinking releasing big movies into theaters right now. I wouldn't be surprised. Longtime Bond producers, Michael G. Wilson, p.g.a. and Barbara Broccoli, p.g.a. headed up the project and the stellar cast includes Daniel Craig, Rami Malek, Léa Seydoux, Lashana Lynch, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, with Jeffrey Wright, with Christoph Waltz and Ralph Fiennes as "M".
