No Time to Die delayed until October

No Time to Die’s release date was pushed back by six months to Oct. 8, according to the official Eon Productions 007 website and a post on Twitter.

No reason was given. The website statement, in its entirety, read: “No Time To Die will be released in cinemas globally on 8 October 2021.” The Twitter post said even less. “NO TIME TO DIE 8 October 2021.”

The 25th James Bond film has been pushed back twice before (from April 2020 to November 2020 and November 2020 to April 2021) because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The virus outbreak has at times forced movie theaters to close.

COVID-19 likely is a factor. The virus continues to hits some markets, including the U.S. and U.K., hard. Another delay has been expected by many Bond fans.

No Time to Die’s cost approached $290 million as of mid-2020, according to a U.K. regulatory filing. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Bond’s home studio, had been counting on a robust theatrical run before the pandemic started.

Here’s the tweet from the official 007 account.

  1. Totally expected.. the pandemic is just putting a tight grip on everything seems like a strange release date..one would think bond would kick off the resurgence of the cinema. Since I don’t see movie trailers anymore I wonder how many completed films or in production that plan for 2021 releases. I’m assuming they chose this date to separate them from other block buster competitors , one would think. Be safe, thanks Bill!
