Daniel Craig is set to have his last hurrah as James Bond with No Time to Die, but creative differences and the global pandemic have lead to the movie being delayed again and again. Like many other films, NTTD was also looking for a streaming service interested in releasing it on their platform, but it looks like nobody was interested.
According to Deadline, a screening of No Time to Die was done to entice movie streamers to release it, but apparently, there were no takers. The site wrote:
MGM screened the movie for streamers, with a reported asking price of $600M, but none of them were willing to pony up even half of that.
If anything, No Time to Die looks to be focusing on a theatrical release, but it would have to move from its set release of April 2 to sometime in the fall. Despite the existence of several vaccines, there is still no clear timeline on when theaters would get back to normal. MGM also has to consider that there are a lot of other blockbusters that are set to release, some delayed from 2020 and some set to come out 2021.
At this point, it’s possible that they could just release the movie to get it out of the way, but there’s a lot riding on the success of No Time to Die. Hopefully they do come up with something, because it feels like releasing it in 2022 could make the movie stale at that point.
As of now, No Time to Die is still set to come out on April 2.
