Madeleine says, “James, listen to me. I’d rather die than…” But before she can finish, the DB5 is hit by another car and they are surrounded in an open square, as can be seen in the trailers.

While Bond is being shot, Bond just sits there before Madeleine yells, “James, do something! Say something, James!”

After processing Madeleine’s possible betrayal, he says, “Okay, before you put a donut in the DB5, shoot all the enemies – as seen in previously released footage – before you escape.

This opening scene was shot about two years ago in Matera, Italy and what Madeleine supposedly did is a big mystery in No Time To Die, with a connection to Rami Malek’s Safin and Specter.

From previous trailers, it looks like there’s a big time jump after the opening scene. Bond and Madeleine appear to have 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 he visits Blofeld in prison. What happens next, we’ll have to wait and see in the movie when it finally releases.

No Time To Die opens in UK cinemas on September 30, followed by the US on October 8.
