JAMES BOND 25 <font color=red>Officially</font> Announced; Daniel Craig Confirmed To Return With Danny Boyle Directing

Late last night, news broke that Universal had secured the rights to distribute James Bond 25 internationally and now, MGM has officially announced the sequel, confirming both Daniel Craig & Danny Boyle.

After a heated bidding war, Universal Pictures has won the international distribution rights and the physical home entertainment rights for the highly-anticipated 25th installment in the long-running James Bond franchise. Meanwhile, MGM and Annapurna will handle domestic distribution as part of their recent joint venture.

The tentatively titled Bond 25, which will see Daniel Craig return as 007 for his fifth adventure, will open in U.K. theaters on October 25, 2019, before making its way to the U.S. two weeks later on November 8, 2019

Academy Award-winner Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) has been confirmed to direct with an original script from his longtime writing partner John Hodge (Trainspotting). Production is expected to begin on December 3.



Looking ahead at the release calendar, Bond 25 will open in a busy November, opposite 20th Century Fox's Death On The Nile and an Untitled Disney live-action film. It will also debut a week after Warner Bros.' Wonder Woman 2 (November 1) and ahead of Paramount's Sonic the Hedgehog (November 15), Skydance's Terminator 6 (November 22), and Disney's Frozen 2 (November 29).
