James Bond No Time To Die Delayed Until November Over Coronavirus

The new James Bond movie will be released on November 25, 2020 in the United States

It seems we’ll have to wait a bit longer to see the new James Bond No Time To Die. Unfortunately, the movie has been delayed by more than seven months over concerns in regards to the coronavirus. While public safety is of the utmost concern for the movie producers, they are also scared off the negative impact the coronavirus scare would have on its success at the box office.

With almost 5 years since the last James Bond movie, Spectre took the big screen, with Daniel Crag in the main role, most James Bond and automotive fans are looking forward to another action-packed thriller. In turn, No Time To Die is shaping up to provide us with the same action pack storyline, showcasing a bevy of impressive vehicles like the Land Rover Defender as well as an Aston Martin DB5, a classic V8 Vantage, the DBS Superleggera, and the forthcoming Valhalla hypercar.

The movie was supposed to be released in the UK and international markets on April 2 and in the U.S. on April 10. It will now premiere on November 12, 2020 in the UK and international markets and November 25, 2020 in the United States. Just the perfect way to bridge the boring season from summertime to the winter holidays, making the newest Bond movie one of the most interesting premieres of the year.

“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 three studios behind the film told Deadline.

With China already having closed 70,000 theaters across the country in a bid to help stop the spread of the coronavirus and other Asian markets doing the same, the increasingly important market share is being threatened by the virus outbreak. Furthermore, many theaters in Italy (currently the hotspot for coronavirus in Europe) are also closed up, with France doing the same. Other countries are thinking of going in the same direction to combat the spread of the virus, putting the opening weekends for the movie in jeopardy.

Overall, we have no qualm about public safety being key here. And we don’t even have any objections to the movie producers halting the release due to potential earnings issues. However, we’re excited about the latest James Bond movie, especially seeing how this might well be Daniel Craig suiting up as 007 special agent for the last time. After SpectreSkyfallQuantum of Solace and Casino Royale, it will be interesting to see how well the new actor behind the world’s most prominent secret service agent find itself in the new role.
