A Bit More Time To Die
Unsurprisingly, James Bond: No Time To Die has been put back yet again and here’s the details from The Hollywood Reporter…
James Bond pic No Time To Die is once again pushing back its release amid the ongoing pandemic and widespread cinema closures in many major markets across the globe.
It was set to open on April 2. Now, it is planning to hit the big screen on Oct. 8 as Hollywood faces more delays before moviegoing resumes in earnest. No Time to Die is likely to spark another wave of high-profile moves among spring and early summer movies.
Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, the 25th installment in the iconic spy franchise returns Daniel Craig in the titular role. MGM, Eon Productions and Universal are backing the tentpole.
In early 2020, No Time to Die became the first Hollywood tentpole to become a casualty of the COVID-19 crisis when its original April 2020 release date was pushed back to November 2020 (it was subsequently pushed to April 2021).
The film — marking Daniel Craig’s final turn as 007 — also stars Bond returnees Lea Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes and Christoph Waltz, along with franchise newcomers Rami Malek, Ana de Armas and Lashana Lynch. Billie Eilish has recorded the title track.
MGM is handling No Time to Die domestically via United Artists Releasing, while Universal has international distribution duties.
