To celebrate the release of the latest James Bond film, the Jamaica Tourist Board has released behind-the-scenes footage of No Time To Die. The footage showcases cast and crew as well as some of the locations shot in Jamaica.
Jamaica is the birthplace of 007, where Ian Fleming created and wrote the Bond novels. The island also features in the first James Bond film, Dr. No (1962), as well as in Live And Let Die (1973).
Jamaica is a key location in No Time To Die where Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life on the island. His peace is short-lived when his old friend, Felix Leiter, from the CIA turns up asking for help.
Hon Edmund Bartlett, Minister of Tourism for Jamaica, said, “Bond for us means we are a place for beginnings, but we are also a place for great endings”. And Hon Olivia Grange, Jamaica’s Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, commented, “It’s really something we have dreamt about and we are happy that it’s going to be a reality.”
