The new James Bond film is one of the most eagerly awaited and the world's most famous secret agent will start his latest adventure in the exotic Caribbean.

Daniel Craig returns to play 007 in his fifth film as Ian Fleming’s James Bond, but it will be the final Bond movie for Craig.

By his side in the latest film, which is also shot in London, Italy and Norway, is Naomie Harris as Moneypenny and Léa Seydoux.

One of the new Bond movie's locations is in Jamaica, where Ian Fleming was first inspired to create 007 and is also where the first James Bond film, Dr No starring Sean Connery, was made in 1962.

The latest film will see Bond enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica after leaving active service before an old friend, Felix Leiter, from the CIA turns up asking for help. The British secret agent embarks on a mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist, which puts him on the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.

The new Bond movie is expected to be released in cinemas in April 2020.

The Bond franchise is one of the movie world's most lucrative with 2015's "Spectre" raking in $880 million at the box office worldwide, while "Skyfall" in 2012 grossed more than $1 billion globally.
