James Bond's 'No Time to Die' Release Delayed Until November over Coronavirus Concerns
Published Mar 04, 2020Cary Fukunaga's long-awaited No Time to Die — which will be the final James Bond film from Daniel Craig — has faced plenty of setbacks in its journey to the screen, including a serious tumble that required ankle surgery and some real-life on-set explosions. Now, the film's release has been delayed by six months over Coronavirus concerns.
No Time to Die was set to release on April 8 in North America, one week after its British premiere. That said, producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli have confirmed that they're holding off until the end of the year. In North America, No Time to Die will now be released on November 25, while the U.K. will get the film on November 12.
Here's the official statement:
MGM, Universal and Bond producers, Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, announced today that after careful consideration and thorough evaluation of the global theatrical marketplace, the release of No Time to Die will be postponed until November 2020. The film will be released in the U.K. on November 12, 2020 with worldwide release dates to follow, including the U.S. launch on November 25, 2020.
The film was initially scheduled for release in November 2019 but was delayed over production delays. Then, earlier this week, an open letter demanding the film be postponed was circulating on various Bond fan sites online.
