Daniel Criag decided on the final 'No Time To Die' musical choice

19-Oct-2021 • No Time To Die

Director Cary Fukunaga explained to the LA Times about how the track 'We Have All The Time In The World' came to wrap 'No Time To Die'.

"It came from two places," said Fukunaga of using the song. "One, I had never seen 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service' until I started doing research. I had seen pretty much every other Bond film. And somehow that one eluded me. I think it was one of those things where maybe it was just word of mouth or maybe it was because it wasn't as popular, but I watched it and one, I just thought it was a gorgeously shot Bond film, but two, I loved that Louis Armstrong song.

"I hadn't realized that they were reprising the strings and the reed section of that in a bunch of other Bond films, but I wanted to definitely do it in this one," he said. "Chris Benstead, our music editor, had dropped it into the early part of the film. And I was like, 'This is perfect.'

"And 'all the time in the world' being a very purposeful piece of dialogue in that opening car ride [with Bond and Madeline] — [it's] also meant a bit to be a red herring. I think for big Bond fans, they're gonna expect a different outcome than what happens.

"So when we were coming up with the ending and we're trying to figure out, 'How big do you make this?' And, Daniel was like, 'I don't want to make a big fanfare about it. I'd rather just it's a fact and then we have Louis' song play at the end.' I'm like, 'Yeah, why not?' Who cares if it's been in another Bond film, let's put it on our credits. It's the right feeling to have there going out. It's bittersweet, it's poignant, but it's epic at the same time."
