Earlier this week, MGM gave their showcase at the annual CinemaCon in Las Vegas. Aside from the studio remaining committed to a cinematic release on September 30 in the UK and October 8 in the US for No Time To Die, those lucky few attendees were able to see nine minutes of opening footage from the James Bond film’s pre-titles sequence. WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD FOR THE OPENING OF NO TIME TO DIE.
According to a description reported by Screen Rant: “[Sound is muffled at the start of the scene]. Bond is on the ground, hurt.
“He wakes up and pulls his phone out of his jacket pocket. He starts running down the street and towards the bridge [from the trailer], chasing after a teenage boy.
“A car comes from behind up and tries to run him over, but Bond dodges it by taking cover behind a small rock before jumping off the bridge when a motorcycle arrives. [We see this scene in the trailer].
“When he lands below the bridge, he starts running through the city. He tackles the motorcyclist and fights him one-on-one, killing him. But before he dies, the motorcyclist reveals Madeleine is the ‘daughter of Spectre.’”
The description continued: “Bond takes his bike and drives it through the city, culminating in his bike jump from the trailer. He leaves the bike and goes up to a hotel room, it seems.
“The bell attendant says something about Bond’s wife. Bond sees Madeleine and says, ‘You’re right. Letting go is hard.’ She responds, ‘James, what happened?’
“Bond says, angrily, ‘How did they know I was here? Spectre – how did they know?’ A phone rings, but Bond doesn’t answer.
“He and Madeleine leave, getting in their Aston Martin. ‘I have something I need to tell you,’ she says. Bond responds, ‘I bet there is.’ Bond drives throughout the city again, trying to escape. Madeleine gets a phone call.”
The rest of the description sees Bond telling Madeleine to pick up the phone before doing so himself.
A voice at the other end says: “Your father would be so proud of you. Your sacrifice…[it tails off].”
A shocked Madeleine try to reassure Bond, in footage seen in previous trailers where she asks: “James, why would I betray you.” Before 007 replies: “We all have our secrets. We just didn’t get to yours yet.”
As they speed along in the DB5, Bond releases mini spike-bombs from the back to take out a car chasing them.

Madeleine says: “James, listen to me. I would rather die than…” But before she can finish, the DB5 is hit by another car and they’re surrounded in an open square as seen in the trailers.
While being shot at, Bond just sits there before Madeleine yells: “James, do something! Say something, James!”
After processing Madeleine’s possible betrayal he says, ‘Okay, before doing a doughnut in the DB5, shooting all the enemies – as seen in previously released footage – before making an escape.
This opening sequence was shot in Matera, Italy around two years ago and whatever Madeleine supposedly did is a big mystery in No Time To Die, with a connection to Rami Malek’s Safin and Spectre.
From previous trailers, it looks like there’s a big time jump after the opening sequence. Bond and Madeleine seemingly having broken up before he retires as 007 and moves to Jamaica.
But when recruited by CIA agent Felix Leiter, Bond returns to MI6 in London and is reunited with Madeleine when visiting Blofeld in prison. As for what happens next, we’ll have to wait and see in the movie when it finally releases.
No Time To Die hits UK cinemas on September 30, followed by the US on October 8.
