An action sequence filmed at the CMA CGM-operated Kingston Container Terminal in Jamaica will be one of the highlights of the 25th James Bond film, No Time to Die. The container giant is an official partner of the movie and granted filmmakers EON Productions unprecedented access to Kingston Container Terminal to shoot the sequence, including allowing a seaplane to fly under one of its cranes.

Two French-flagged CMA CGM vessels were also used during filming, the 2,260 TEU CMA CGM Fort Saint Georges, which features in a scene where Bond is rescued from the ocean, and the 3,504 TEU CMA CGM Fort de France.

Filming took place at the CMA CGM-operated Kingston South Quay Terminal in Jamaica, a strategic transhipment hub for the Group in the Caribbean, located at the exit of the Panama Canal and the crossroads of the North/South and East/West lines.

A dedicated international CMA CGM team was formed to support the partnership with the filmmaker, led by Tanya Saadé Zeenny, Executive Officer of the CMA CGM Group.

The CMA CGM teams at sea and ashore who worked seamlessly together to support the production are now eagerly awaiting the film’s global release.

No Time to Die is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and stars Daniel Craig, returning for his fifth and final film as Ian Fleming’s James Bond. The film will be released in cinemas from September 30, 2021, in the U.K. through Universal Pictures International and in the U.S. on October 8, 2021, from Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM) via its United Artists Releasing unit.
