We waited (and then waited some more) for this moment, but here he is… Daniel Craig taking his last 007 call to action in not one, but two final trailers for No Time To Die. In the two final cuts we get a glimpse of Bond’s kick-ass companion (Paloma), see more from Rami Malek’s spine-chilling villain (Safin) and see heaps of world-class VFX from our LDN team.

Venice Film Festival
One of the biggest – and oldest – festivals in the industry is well underway, continuing until next Saturday 11th September. With #Dune currently trending on twitter, Rolling Stone pick out some of the most anticipated movies coming through this year, have a read here.
Also trending on twitter was Keanu Reeves. It being his birthday yesterday, we thought we might just get a nice little birthday gift from him in the shape of a Matrix: Resurrections trailer but it’s a negative on that front.
That’s this week all rounded-up. Catch you next time (hopefully with a Matrix trailer). A reminder that Monday 6th September is a public holiday for both MTL and the U.S.
