Bond, James Bond will now be hitting theaters much later in the year! Due to the Coronavirus, MGM and Universal Pictures announced via Twitter press release No Time to Die will now debut in November!
No Time to Die was originally set to hit theaters on March 31st in the United Kingdom, and April 10th in the United States. However, the spread of the devastating respiratory Coronavirus has changed everything for the 25th James Bond film. The official release date is now November 12, 2020 for the U.K. and November 25, 2020 for the U.S.
The November debut puts the Bond film right in the middle of the Thanksgiving holiday for the U.S. This could potentially give countless viewers more of a chance to get to the theater.
Universal is not the first studio to adjust a project due to the Coronavirus. Just last week, Paramount stopped all production in Italy of Mission Impossible VII!
No Time to Die is directed by Cary Fukunaga and stars Daniel Craig, Ana de Armas, Rami Malek, Ralph Fiennes, Christoph Waltz and Naomie Harris.
