NO TIME TO DIE Star Daniel Craig Says Bond Girls No Longer Exist (At Least Not While He's Around)

NO TIME TO DIE Star Daniel Craig Says Bond Girls No Longer Exist (At Least Not While He's Around)

Daniel Craig has weighed in on the Bond Girl debate while doing the rounds to promote No Time to Die, making it clear that's not something he believes is a relevant part of the franchise these days...

While "Bond Girls" were always a huge part of the James Bond franchise, the world has changed in recent years, and it no longer feels like there's really a place for token eye candy in 007's adventures. 

That's evident in No TIme to Die, as two of the movie's female leads are portrayed as independent, badass women more than capable of holding their own alongside Bond. Crucially, neither Paloma (Ana de Armas) nor Nomi (Lashana Lynch) are seduced by the secret agent, and star Daniel Craig seems keen that the series move on from the idea of Bond Girls altogether. 

"No more Bond girls," the actor said when he was asked what he most frequently has to correct people about while talking about his James Bond role. "They don't exist anymore. They may exist again, but not in my movies." That's all he'd say on the matter, though Lynch did add: "He said what he said."

We also have a box office update on No Time to Die for you; current estimates point to the movie opening to $60 million in North America this weekend. It earned $23.3 million on Friday, and while this is a lower debut than Spectre, Skyfall, and Quantum of Solace, that's by no means a bad result during this "pandemic era" of box office takings we find ourselves in.

In our review of the movie, we said that "No Time to Die is the perfect James Bond movie; action-packed, satisfying, and surprisingly heartfelt, Cary Joji Fukunaga proves an ideal fit for this franchise and helps make sure Daniel Craig, who is phenomenal here, ends his tenure as 007 in style."

Did you guys decide to check out No Time to Die on the big screen this weekend?
