‘No Time to Die’ Release Pushed Back to 2021

Producers say the release will be delayed until April 2021 “in order to be seen by a worldwide theatrical audience”.

The premiere of No Time To Die has already been moved from April to November due to the coronavirus crisis limiting theatre capacity and other restrictions. The film has now been further delayed until 2 April 2021 “in order to be seen by a worldwide theatrical audience”, a statement on the film’s website said. Apparently there were concerns about rising cases in many countries, making a November release ‘precarious’.

“We understand the delay will be disappointing to our fans but we now look forward to sharing No Time To Die next year.” No Time To Die is due to be Daniel Craig’s final appearance as the British secret service agent.

Bond movie delayed

“MGM, Universal and Bond producers, Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, today announced the release of ‘No Time To Die,’ the 25th film in the James Bond series, will be delayed until 2 April in order to be seen by a worldwide theatrical audience,” the filmmakers said in a statement.

No Time to Die Film synopsis

Recruited to rescue a kidnapped scientist, globe-trotting spy James Bond finds himself hot on the trail of a mysterious villain, who’s armed with dangerous new technology.

“No Time to Die” carries a production budget over €170m ($200m) and cost millions more to promote. The studio reportedly lost millions when it shelved the movie earlier in 2020. Given Bond’s global appeal, the sequel’s backers wanted to wait until audiences across the world felt safe returning to theatres to have a chance at turning a profit.
