CMA CGM Official Partner Of New James Bond Film ‘No Time To Die’
An official partner of the 25th James Bond film, No Time To Die, CMA CGM granted filmmakers EON Productions unprecedented access to Kingston Container Terminal in Jamaica to shoot an action sequence with a seaplane, and the vessel CMA CGM FORT SAINT GEORGES features in the film when Bond is rescued from the ocean.
CMA CGM ships, crew members and 1,000 shipping containers used for filming
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.
Flying the French flag and under the leadership of French Masters, the vessels CMA CGM FORT SAINT GEORGES (2,260 TEUs1) and CMA CGM FORT DE FRANCE (3,504 TEUs) and more than 1,000 containers were mobilised for the shoot. In addition, a dozen crew, including the Master, took part in the filming.
A dedicated international CMA CGM team
To support the unique partnership, a dedicated team led by Tanya Saadé Zeenny, Executive Officer of the CMA CGM Group, was formed at the Head Office in Marseille and CMA CGM-operated terminals in Kingston and Dunkirk.
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, who returns 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 UK through Universal Pictures International and in the US on October 8, 2021, from Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM) via their United Artists Releasing banner.
