While Safin has popped up briefly in some of the endless trailers that have kept fans busy while we wait for the latest film in the franchise, he has finally earned some solid screen time in a new clip.

We don't know too much about Rami Malek's man so far, other than he really likes tidiness, loves shooting at people under the ice instead of trying to save them and, with that mask, presumably has a penchant for The Phantom Of The Opera.

Malef said, "Suffin is a formidable adversary". It also brings back Ben Whishaw as Q, Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny and Jeffrey Wright as Central Intelligence Agency agent Felix Leiter. The new trailer gives hints about Safin's mission.

Watch the full clip about Safin above. "Thinking of himself as being heroic", says Malek of the character.

Talking about the character Fukunaga said, "What he wants and what he's willing to do makes him a very frightening character, both personally to Bond, but also on a global level". No Time to Die was originally going to open in April, but of course, the coronavirus changed that. The film is slated to release in theatres in November this year. 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.

Daniel Craig returns to the role of Bond alongside an all-star cast including Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Rory Kinnear, Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, Ana de Armas, Dali Benssalah, David Dencik, Lashana Lynch and Billy Magnussen.

Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, Cary Joji Fukunaga, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge worked on the screenplay, which is based on a story by Purvis, Wade, and Cary Joji Fukunaga.
