公開が楽しみな映画:「007 No Time to Die」 A Movie I’m Looking Forward to Its Release: ‘OO7 No Time to Die’



 The movie called ‘OO7 No Time to Die’, the 25th instalment in the 007 film series which was supposed to be released in April, is going to be released on the 20th of November.

 I’ve been a big fan of this series since I was a boy. I’ve read all the books in Japanese. The reason why I studied English seriously was that I wanted to read the original works. Actually, I’ve already read them except for ‘The Man with the Golden Gun’.  I owe it to them that I could have improved my reading skills for sure.

 イアン・フレミングによる原作は、長編が12冊、短編集が2冊出版されています。短編集には全部で8つの作品(洋書にしか入っていない「007 in New York」というわずか9ページの小品を入れるなら9つ)が掲載されています。つまり原作は20作しかないのに、それを超える数の映画が作られていることになります。

 The original works were written by Ian Fleming and he published twelve novels and two collection of short stories. There were eight short stories in total in the two collection (I can add another story called ‘007 in New York’, which has just 9 pages and is only contained in one of the original collections). What I want to say here is that there are twenty original works but the number of the movies are more than that.


 Honestly, I definitely like the original works more than the movie series. I know it may sound strange, but I can’t get enough of them no matter how many times I read them. However, I suppose the movie versions don’t have the same quality as the original works. So I have lost any interest in the movies particularly since they have run out of the original works which are they should based on.




 Ben, my friend who is an Englishman, asked me to the movies when it will be released. Actually, I was intrigued by the trailer. It seems like the movie is full of powerful action scenes. It may be the last one starring Daniel Craig as James Bond. The most interesting thing for me is that Rami Marek, who played Freddie Mercury in ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, appears as the villain in it. Although this movie ‘No Time to Die’ is not based on any original works, of course, I’m very looking forward to seeing the screenplay written by Cary Fukunaga, a Japanese American who also directed this movie.
