No Time To Die Delayed Again
2020 is No Time To Die as the 25th Bond film moves to April
It’s the news nobody wanted to hear but MGM, Universal, and Bond producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli have announced that No Time To Die has been delayed until 2 April 2021. The twenty-fifth Bond film was originally set to arrive in April this year before the coronavirus lockdown forced a postponement to November. Fans will have to wait longer still for Daniel Craig’s fifth and final outing as the famed Double-O, but it’s reassuring that the filmmakers are committing to cinemas and this latest delay is to ensure the film can be seen by a worldwide theatrical audience. Even in the current situation, with cases on the rise and many cinemas remaining shut across the globe, this comes as a real shock to the industry that had high hopes of Bond staying put. It’s especially surprising considering publicity was beginning to really ramp up for the film with the announcement coming just one day after Billie Eilish shared the video for her theme song. The delay also impacts Fast & Furious 9 which was previously parked in the spot now occupied by Bond and must now find a new space in May.
