Captain Marvel star Lashana Lynch is in the spotlight for a new No Time To Die photoshoot at Pinewood Studios, to promote the launch of a new smartphone.

Lynch, 32, who is playing Nomi in the film, and is the first Black female 00 agent in the franchise, appeared in an epic Bond-inspired shoot at the Berkshire film studios.

The action-packed photos feature Lashana in one of her costumes from the film, with all the 007 trimmings, including an Aston Martin DBS Superleggera and a Triumph Thruxton RS motorcycle.

And in keeping with the film franchise’s love of gadgets, a number of photos were taken on the Nokia 8.3 5G smartphone.

Lynch said: “The world we live in now means we all have the ultimate gadget in our pockets.

"It’s amazing what smartphones can do nowadays. I’m excited to be unveiling this new smartphone to celebrate the release of No Time To Die in November, and the Nokia 8.3 5G is proof that Bond gadgets are always ahead of the game.”

“A 00 agent, 00 cars, 00 bikes, an 8,000 square foot stage at Pinewood Studios and a stunt phone-ographer capturing everything on the Nokia 8.3 5G smartphone, felt about right and the results show the possibilities of this new smartphone."

No Time To Die finds Daniel Craig’s James Bond retired from active service. However, he’s drawn out of retirement by Jeffrey Wright’s Felix Leiter who is on the trail of a kidnapped scientist.

The film, from Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions, Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios (MGM), and Universal Pictures International was written by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade (Spectre, Skyfall), Fukunaga, Scott Z. Burns (Contagion, The Bourne Ultimatum) and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Killing Eve, Fleabag).

Starring Daniel Craig, Rami Malek, Léa Seydoux, Lashana Lynch, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, with Jeffrey Wright, Christoph Waltz and Ralph Fiennes as “M”, No Time To Die lands in cinemas on 12 November.
