'Bond 25' set photos: Daniel Craig comforted by Barry Jenkins

Did you ever have one of those days where the intense schedule meant you hadn’t had time to go to the mailbox or even a bank?

Luckily for you, James Bond used to walk around the neighborhood in no time at all.

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the James Bond franchise, on Friday, Dec. 28, the director of this year’s release “Bond 25,” Cary Fukunaga, revealed a few behind-the-scenes pics and posted a few on social media. One in particular caught my eye: the behind-the-scenes photo of Daniel Craig being comforted by “Moonlight” director Barry Jenkins. Fukunaga posted the picture on Instagram on Friday morning, writing “a wonderful feeling.”

And though that particular bit of intel is a black-and-white filmic photo, you can see the whole Instagram and Twitter story which Fukunaga uploaded with actor Jamie Bell, who plays “Bond 25” villain (presumably) Ben Whishaw, and producer Barbara Broccoli.

Fans were left with this: The first two pictures from the set of “Bond 25” are so sweet they could have been at the Academy Awards. As Fukunaga captioned the second and third photos, “Bond and femme fatale #nowontotheboxoffice #notimetogetlost.”

Just so all true James Bond fans know, while Craig has said he will hang up his martini glass, Daniel Craig isn’t done with Bond.

Craig recently stated, “[I] would definitely be down to play the part for one more round — but only if I absolutely had to.” Then, “I think you have to wait and see. You never know.”

Craig will reprise his role of James Bond for the third time in a forthcoming film “Bond 25.” But is it a tragedy that Craig won’t be playing Bond in “Bond 24” and “Bond 25”? Not at all.

Who is playing the spy’s latest good-guy sidekick and love interest in “Bond 25”? From the looks of the character photos, it looks like Ralph Fiennes will play Moneypenny.

Many fans are clamoring for a different actor to play the good-guy next girlfriend. If you’re just joining us, we can’t say for sure that it will be a woman who joins Bond in “Bond 25.” What we can say for sure is that the age range of Bond’s next leading lady, will change. The M line of Bond girls usually ranges from 23 to 26 years old. But, according to sources who have been quoted, Bond will have a new leading lady in “Bond 25” who’s about 30.

No need to assume the new babe will be white. In the series, the birthstones of all the leading ladies are (gasp!) diamonds.

So who has a history of playing villains and women in general? It looks like Colin Salmon (who has appeared in “Paddington 2” and “True Detective: Season 2”) will play the next Bond girl. He can also be seen reprising his role as Mac in this year’s “Ocean’s 8.”

Fiennes has appeared in numerous television shows and films like “The Dark Knight Rises,” “Shutter Island,” “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” “Batman Begins,” “The Imitation Game,” “Atonement,” “The Missing,” “Trainspotting,” “Wild,” “American Gangster,” “Traffic,” “The Duchess,” “Munich,” “Les Misérables,” “Avatar,” “Casino Royale,” “The American,” “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” “Hugo,” “V for Vendetta,” “Thor: The Dark World,” “Victor Victoria,” “Bernard and Doris,” “Cold Mountain,” “Blood Diamond,” “Elizabethtown,” “A Beautiful Mind,” “Bel Ami,” “Far From Heaven,” “Red Queen,” “Gladiator,” “Casino Royale,” “Starship Troopers,” “Gandhi,” “Wilde Salome,” “The 39 Steps,” “The World Is Not Enough,” “The Mother,” “Ready Player One,” “The Last Of The Mohicans,” “To Die For,” “Out Of Africa,” “Possession,” “Antony And Cleopatra,” “Shakespeare In Love,” “Independence Day: Resurgence,” “Into The
