Blofeld, Goldfinger and Drax, meet Safin.
A video featurette launched Monday for the upcoming 25th James Bond movie, “No Time To Die,” offers viewers perception into this model new villain, performed by Oscar-winner Rami Malek, 39.
“What he desires and what he’s keen to do makes him a really horrifying character,” says director Cary Joji Fukunaga in a video introducing the ominous new character. “Each personally to Bond, and in addition on a worldwide degree.”
Certainly, the maniacal Safin says to 007: “We each eradicate individuals to make the world a greater place.”
At one level at midnight video, we watch as Safin stands on a frozen lake, above a person who’s trapped beneath the ice, after which, only for good measure, wildly shoots his gun at him.
Little continues to be recognized concerning the character’s origins.
Malek (“Bohemian Rhapsody”) speaks in a vaguely European accent, and infrequently dons a white masks to protect his disfigured face.
One factor that’s abundantly clear is his motivation: “Revenge.”
“No Time To Die,” starring Daniel Craig as 007, hits theaters on Nov. 20.
