Cinemagoers have hailed the “epic” new James Bond film after it opened to the public in cinemas.

No Time To Die, which had its release repeatedly pushed back because of the pandemic, is the final film in the franchise that will star Daniel Craig.

Many cinemas offered early screenings of the new film as James Bond fans came to see the final instalment of Craig’s stint as 007.

The film was due for release in April 2020 but it was repeatedly postponed because of the pandemic.

No Time To Die, which was directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, takes place following the capture of villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld, played by Christoph Waltz, when Bond and love interest Madeleine Swann, played by Lea Seydoux, ran off together at the end of 2015 film Spectre.

It finds Bond after he has left active service, enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica, although it seems the couple are not guaranteed a happily ever after.
