MGM, Universal and Bond producers, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, have announced that after thorough evaluation of the global theatrical marketplace, the release of No Time To Die will be postponed until November 2020.
Although the producers have not mentioned the reason for postponement, it could be because of coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic.
The film will be released in the U.K. on November 12, 2020 with worldwide release dates to follow, including the US launch on November 25, 2020.
It is the 25th installment in the James Bond series to be produced by Eon Productions. Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, the film stars Daniel Craig in his 5th outing as the MI6 agent James Bond.
In the film, James Bond faces unprecedented danger when he goes in search of an abducted scientist. 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 the 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.
No Time To Die is produced with a budget of $250 million.
