Of all the things James Bond has done, the theatrical release of No Time To Die has been the most perilous so far.
The 25th James Bond film has had its release date pushed back yet again. MGM has officially announced that they’ve made the decision to postpone the release of No Time To Die, to April 2, 2021.
No doubt taking the box office numbers from the recent release of the blockbuster hopeful Tenet as a sign; the studio said they made the decision to push back release in hopes that 007’s next mission could be in theaters and seen by audiences worldwide.
“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 in order to be seen by a worldwide theatrical audience,” said the studio. “We understand the delay will be disappointing to our fans but we now look forward to sharing No Time To Die next year.”
This is the third, and hopefully final, time the studio will need to postpone the film. The new date marks the film being postponed a full year from its original release date due to the coronavirus pandemic.
No Time To Die is now set to hit the big screen on April 2, 2021.
