The long-anticipated release of the James Bond film “No Time to Die” has once again been postponed.
The new release window is currently supposed to be 2021 because of the expanding cost the Covid pandemic has had on the theatrical business.
“No Time to Die” was initially expected to open in April 2020 yet was pushed back to Nov. 12 in the U.K. and Nov. 20 in the U.S.
It was one of the primary Hollywood movies to relinquish its release before cinemas in the U.S. close down in mid-March due to the novel virus.
“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 2021 in order to be seen by a worldwide theatrical audience,” the franchise’s Twitter account announced on Friday.
“We understand the delay will be disappointing to our fans but we now look forward to sharing NO TIME TO DIE next year,” they wrote in a follow-up tweet.
