A month today, Daniel Craig’s fifth and final James Bond movie hits UK cinemas. While much of the plot is under wraps, one of the biggest rumours is that Rami Malek’s villain Safin is actually Dr No. And now the latest poster for No Time To Die has 007 fans all excited.
The new poster has No Time To Die’s main characters together across Bond’s back.
Malek’s Safin is front and centre, but just to the right is the sign for what could be a bar from the movie’s Cuba scenes.
The sign appears to say “bar NIDO” with a symbol on the left of the N.
But one fan reckons the sign is a hint, with the symbol looking like “Dr”.

And if you cross out the “bar”, “I” and “D” you’re left with “Dr No”.
A coincidence? Could be. But, maybe also a hint?
Interestingly, last week’s No Time To Die behind-the-scenes video saw Safin described as smarter, stronger and more dangerous than even Spectre boss Blofeld.
The video saw director Cary Fukunaga tease what Bond fans can expect.
The filmmaker said: “People close to Bond, those considered to be family, are at great risk.
“And now there’s someone new out there, more dangerous than anyone he’s ever encountered.
“And whoever they are, is smarter and stronger than Spectre.
“From the moment he’s called to action to the end of the film is a race, not only to save the world, but their lives.”

In the original Dr No film, the titular villain was under Blofeld in Spectre.
So if Safin does turn out to be the same baddie, his inclusion could be quite the change.
Of course, it’s possible he was working for Spectre, but went rogue and became more powerful than Blofeld.
Certainly, Malek has refused to deny that he is secretly playing Dr No.
Esquire asked if he was playing Dr No, to which he replied coyly: “ “I heard that, Am I?
“I mean isn’t that an exciting thing to consider all the way up to the release? There is a resurgence of an Ian Fleming influence on this film”
“I have to be extremely careful – I can’t really talk about the character.”
No Time to Die is released in UK cinemas on April 2, 2020.
