Covid: Bond film No Time To Die delayed for third time

The 25th entry in the James Bond franchise is now scheduled to be released in theaters on October 8, IndieWire reports.

THE MAKERS OF the new James Bond movie - which has already had its release date pushed back twice due to the pandemic - have said that it will not be released until the end of 2021.

The film's initial delay paved the way for the slew of release date shifts in 2020 and it's now predicted we'll see similar shifts start to happen in the coming months.

Producers of "No Time to Die", the latest upcoming installment of the James Bond franchise, have delayed its theatrical release yet again. The film will now make its bow on October 8, 2021.

No Time to Die is expected to be Daniel Craig's final time playing 007, with Academy Award victor Rami Malek as the film's mysterious villain.

The postponement of Daniel Craig's swansong and other films "underlines the need for ongoing support for the United Kingdom cinema sector", the trade body's chief executive Phil Clapp said.

Bond Film No Time To Die Delayed Again Until October, 2021

James Bond actor Sean Connery passed away at 60, former Bond girl Tanya Roberts ("A View to a Kill") died at the age of 65, and we found out actress Lashana Lynch would be the next 007 (temporarily in "No Time To Die").

The UK Cinema Association said the decision to delay the film's release was "clearly disappointing".

Major Disney titles like Pixar's Soul and its live-action remake of Mulan bypassed cinemas, premiering instead on the Disney+ streaming service.

It comes after Warner Bros this month announced it was delaying the release of Sopranos prequel The Many Saints Of Newark.

The outlet reports that "No Time to Die" cost around $200 million and will need to be an worldwide success to make money on the flick, especially considering an advertising campaign was almost completed in the past. Maybe they just have to hold their nerve.

The previous Bond film, 2015's Spectre, took nearly $900m (£690m) at worldwide box offices. They include Marvel's Black Widow and Steven Spielberg's West Side Story.
