AI imagines Henry Cavill as the next James Bond.

What’s in the trailer?

The trailer uses AI-created frames and stills from other movies of the two actors to build a Bond movie-like template. While the caption of the trailer on YouTube does clarify that it’s a fake one, the number of views have now crossed 2.5 million.

“Please note that this video is a concept trailer created solely for artistic and entertainment purposes. I have meticulously incorporated various effects, sound design, AI technologies, movie analytics, and other elements to bring my vision to life. Its purpose is purely artistic, aiming to entertain and engage with the YouTube community. My goal is to showcase my creativity and storytelling skills through this trailer. Thank you for your support, and let’s dive into the world of imagination,” states creator KHStudio.

Henry Cavill and 007

Interestingly, Henry Cavill did audition for Martin Campbell’s 2006 Bond movie Casino Royale, but he was rejected because he was “too young.” Eventually, Daniel Craig was selected to play Bond and he continued to do so in the successive movies of the franchise, up until No Time To Die in 2021.

When it was rumoured that he’s been approached to play Bond after Daniel’s exit, Henry said on The Rich Eisen Show, “I have no idea. All I’ve got to go off is the rumors. The same information you have. Maybe I’m too old now, maybe I’m not. It’s up to Barbara Broccoli and Mike Wilson (producers) and we’ll see what their plans are.”

The recent name that popped up for the casting of 007 is Aaron Taylor-Johnson. The Kick-Ass star is no stranger to action movies and at 33 is a good age to join the franchise, as producers likely want a 10 year commitment to the role.
