Meet Bond's new allies! Lashana Lynch and Ana Armas

James Bond has two new allies in the form of agents Paloma and Nomi.

A new promotional video introduces fans to ‘cocky’ Nomi [Lashana Lynch] and ‘intense’ Cuban agent Paloma [Ana De Armas] ahead of the No Time To Die release.

007 Director Cary Joji Fukunaga kicks off the clip by revealing the ‘two brand new agents’, who will assist Bond [Daniel Craig] on his next mission.

During a piece to camera, Fukunaga says: ‘We have two brand new agents in this film who are allies to James Bond.’

The video then cuts to a scene from the upcoming film where Lashana’s character meets Bond for the first time, as she tells him: ‘The world’s moved on commander Bond.

While he questions: ‘Are you a double 0?’, and she replies ‘two years’.

Discussing her character, Lashana says: ‘Nomi is highly skilled, slightly cocky.’

While cutting back to the trailer, Nomi tells Bond: ‘You get in my way, I will but a bullet in your knee… the one that still works.’

Ana then tells viewers about her character, and says: ‘Paloma is a Cuban agent, she’s intense, I had many action scenes. Thank god I had an amazing stunt team.’

During the final trailer for No Time To Die – which was released last month – Craig, 53, is seen coming face-to-face with captured nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld, played by Christoph Waltz.

It appears that the old foes may even be forced to form an uneasy alliance. ‘James, fate draws us back together. Now your enemy is my enemy,’ says Blofeld. ‘How did that happen?’

Bond replies with his trademark smirk: ‘Well, you live long enough.’    

Confusion: In the footage, Bond is interrogated at MI6's London HQ on whether his beau is one of the enemy, to which he darkly replies: 'I don't know her at all.'

Mind games? 007 is told by the film’s villain Blofeld (Christoph Waltz) of Madeleine’s alleged betrayal: ‘When her secret finds its way out… it’ll be the death of you’ 

The high-octane trailer shows Bond staking out the enemy with an assault rifle, firing the famous machine gun turrets on his Aston Martin and soaring through the skies in a plane piloted by female double-0 agent Nomi, played by Lashana Lynch. 

Cuban star Ana as CIA operative Paloma, is also seen high-kicking an attacker.

The main villain in Craig’s fifth appearance as Bond is Safin, played by Oscar-winner Rami Malek – complete with facial scars and an unsettling white mask.

‘We both eradicate people to make the world a better place,’ Safin purrs to Bond at one point. ‘I just want to be a little tidier.’

Secrecy also surrounds 007’s love interest Madeleine Swann, played by Lea Seydoux, after the couple escaped together at the end of 2015’s Spectre. 

Holding a mysterious folder, she warns Bond: ‘You don’t know what this is?’ – and he looks uncharacteristically nervous. Bond is later seen burning a note reading ‘forgive me’. 

All steam ahead: The new trailer comes after MGM film chief Michael De Luca assured fans earlier this month that they would not be postponing the film's release

Fittingly for a production delayed by the Covid pandemic, the tone seems grim and apocalyptic.

‘If we don’t do this,’ Bond growls at the end of the trailer, ‘there will be nothing left to save.’

Fans only have to wait until the end of this month to see if their hero – as is traditional – saves the world and gets the girl. 

The world premiere takes place at the Royal Albert Hall on September 28.
