NO TIME TO DIE Release Date Pushed Back Over 7 Months Due To Coronavirus Concerns

There was a lot of speculation that this would happen, and now MGM has officially announced that No Time To Die has been pushed back by over seven months from its original April 10 release date...

Amid growing concerns surrounding the Coronavirus outbreak, MGM has decided to delay the release of No Time To Die by over 7 months. Originally scheduled to hit theaters on April 2 in The U.K. and April 10 in The States, the 25th James Bond movie has been pushed back until November 12, 2020 in the U.K. and November 25, 2020 in the US.

Deadline broke the story, which was then confirmed via the following joint statement from the studios and producers.

“MGM, Universal and Bond producers, Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, announced today that after careful consideration and thorough evaluation of the global theatrical marketplace, the release of No Time to Die will be postponed until November 2020. The film will be released in the U.K. on November 12, 2020 with worldwide release dates to follow, including the U.S. launch on November 25, 2020.”

This is obviously a very disappointing development for fans of the iconic action franchise, but not entirely surprising given the current circumstances. In fact, No Time To Die might well be just the first of many big tentpole releases to take this kind of action. Could Marvel's Black Widow be next?

Keep an eye out for updates, and check out some recently released stills from the movie below.

In No Time To Die, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.

007



Daniel Craig was ultimately convinced to return as the iconic super-spy for one more adventure, but he had to be certain that he was up to the physical challenge of the role.

“I finished that movie with a broken leg,” says the actor of his experience filming Specter. “I had to question myself: Was I physically capable of doing [another one] or did I want to do another one? Because that phone call to your wife saying ‘I’ve broken my leg’ is not pleasant.”

Madeleine Swann



Léa Seydoux reprises her role of French psychologist Madeleine Swann, who Bond decided to settle down with at the end of Specter. Of course, that didn't last!

“He decided to go off with her and try to have a normal life,” says producer Barbara Broccoli. “Which, of course, we completely blow a hole through at the beginning of this one. He starts off on a romantic journey with Madeleine and then believes that he’s been betrayed by her.” Adds Seydoux, “S— happens! Everything falls apart.”

Felix Leiter


Our new Commissioner Gordon Jeffrey Wright will also be back as CIA agent Felix Leiter, who asks Bond for help rescuing a kidnapped scientist (David Dencik from Top of the Lake).

This ultimately leads Bond to Cuba and onto the trail of Safin.

Moneypenny, Tanner, and Q



Three more returnees: Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny, Rory Kinnear as Tanner, and Ben Whishaw as Q.

Safin



We still don't know a whole lot about Safin, but Broccoli describes him as "really a mean old thing."

Let’s just say that there are some immense challenges [he] has faced in his life,” adds Malek.

Nomi



Captain Marvel's Lashana Lynch plays another Agent named Nomi, who is rumored to take over the 007 mantle from Bond. The actress describes her as “a fierce, opinionated working woman.”
