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.
That "mysterious villain armed with unsafe new technology" is Safin, played by Rami Malek.
As director Cary Joji Fukunaga puts it in this brand new featurette on the character, "what he wants and what he's willing to do, makes him a very frightening character, both personally to Bond and also on a global level".
No Time To Die hits theaters on November 20, 2020. I think Malek is a strong actor, and while I found his Oscar-winning performance in Bohemian Rhapsody to be rather underwhelming, I look forward to seeing him work with better roles, and I'm curious to see what he does with a Bond villain. "James Bond has to adapt to him", Malek told Entertainment Weekly.

Swann seems to know that Safin's out for some kind of revenge in this new clip, and Safin knows exactly who she cares about (hello, bargaining chip).
The film is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and stars Daniel Craig, Rami Malek, Léa Seydoux, Lashana Lynch, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, with Jeffrey Wright, with Christoph Waltz and Ralph Fiennes as "M".
Rami previously credited "Fleabag" creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge - who has worked on the script for the project - for helping to transform his character.
