No Time to Die is a fitting title for our post-pandemic world. It seems to be calling those of us who have been weary and closed-in that the pandemic will not defeat us. The movie itself was delayed as a result of the lockdown, but has come out fighting. And as an attraction, it has certainly worked thus far to lure people out of their homes and back into a sense of normality.
Despite the lasting effects of the pandemic – with some people fearing re-entering cinemas – the latest flick in the series has become the fourth highest-grossing 007 movie at the UK box office. And it became the sixth-biggest film in the world across 2021 after just three weeks, by which time it had raked in $450 million worldwide and $99 million in the United States. The fact that it has overtaken such films as Black Widow in such a short window shows the lasting lure of Bond.
If you’ve seen the new Bond film, then you may be in the mood to act the part. You could buy yourself a new suit for those special occasions, and invest in some upmarket men’s products that will have you feeling suave and classy. For those of you with a bit of expendable cash, you might be interested in a swanky new car.
All things considered; few things will make you feel more like a Craig-era Bond type than a nice high-end poker set. Purchase a nice mahogany table, polish it well and stack your shelves with expensive bottles of whisky backed by elegant lighting. You’ll feel like a regular Bond villain/hero.
