A lot of people were ready to say goodbye to Daniel Craig’s James Bond with No Time to Die in April, but it looks like we’ll have to wait a lot longer before we get to say farewell to the current incarnation of 007.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, No Time to Die has been delayed by 7 months moving from its original April release date to November. The reason was said to be because of the growing Coronavirus Outbreak. Now the film comes out in the UK on Nov. 12 and in the US on Nov. 25.
When it comes down to it, the movie industry is probably one of the things to get hit the hardest by the Coronavirus. There has been a general instruction to avoid crowded places, so now everyone is avoiding movie theaters. Several studios have opted to cancel press tours, and we should probably expect more of these movie delays as the year trudges along.
At some point, I’m thinking that Netflix is going to be the thriving platform this year. With people actively avoiding theaters, more and more will probably be flocking to see what’s coming out on the streaming service in the safety of their homes. Again, that’s just my guess. I’m sure people are eager to come back to theaters once the Coronavirus panic blows over… if it blows over.
Recruited to rescue a kidnapped scientist, globe-trotting spy James Bond finds himself hot on the trail of a mysterious villain, who’s armed with a dangerous new technology.
