Because a James Bond film must necessarily pass through London, No Time to Die also made use of the urban landscape of the English capital. One of the most defining sequences, in which James Bond and M put aside their grudges and move in the same direction, is shot on the promenade near Hammersmith Bridge. A site that has been little exploited in the cinema, that Mourir peut attendre (Dying can wait) puts in the spotlight before flying off to faraway lands, in the purest tradition of the 007 saga.
At 163 minutes, No Time to Die is the longest film in the James Bond saga.
A Grade II listed structure, Hammersmith Bridge is one of the discreet stars of the Thames. A bridge whose evocation resonates with sadness in the great history.
On June 1, 2000 at 4:30 am an IRA bomb exploded, four years after another failed attack. Damaged, the building reopens after two years of closure. Built in 1887, with a length of 210 meters, this suspension bridge, the first in London, is open to pedestrians and vehicles. Once subject to resistance problems, it was reinforced several times but had to close again in 2020. It is decorated with a memorial plaque, in memory of Royal Air Force aviator Charles Campbell Wood. This man having saved a woman from drowning before dying of tetanus he had contracted as a result of his injuries.
