Having already been delayed previously due to COVID-19, the next James Bond movie, No Time to Die, has been pushed back again. No Time to Die’s release date has been officially delayed until next year, with a new date set for April 2, 2021.
“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 2021 in order to be seen by a worldwide theatrical audience,” it was announced on Twitter. “We understand the delay will be disappointing to our fans but we now look forward to sharing No Time to Die next year.”
No Time to Die had been planned to release in just a matter of weeks–it was due out November 12 in the UK and November 20 in the US and elsewhere around the world. Previously, it was due to premiere back in April, but it was among the first wave of movies to see their releases delayed. Whereas some, such as F9, were delayed until 2021 from the start, the new Bond movie was still targeting a 2020 release. Following this latest shift, it will end up being a full-year delay for Daniel Craig’s final outing as the character–assuming it’s not pushed back once again.
