"No Time to Die" Delayed Again to 2021
There really is no time to die.
It's happened again. This evening it was revealed that the upcoming James Bond Film, "No Time to Die" has been delayed again, moving from its November 2020 release date to April 2nd 2021.
The full statement released by MGM, Universal and the Bond producers is as follows:
"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. We understand the delay will be disappointing to our fans but we now look forward to sharing No Time To Die next year."
Naturally, this is a disappointment for all of us Bond fans but it doesn't come as a huge surprise given how the Covid-19 Pandemic is still at large - proving to be one of Bond's toughest foes yet. Originally supposed to release in November last year, there was an initial delay that saw the film moved to February 2020. But when Covid became a thing, it was then postponed until April before ultimately being pushed back to November. Now, just weeks away from when we would have seen it, it's been delayed further and we're just going to have to be patient for a smidge longer.
The gap between the last James Bond film, Spectre, and this one is one of the longest gaps between Bond films in history. Spectre came out back in 2015 and it will be almost six years when it (hopefully) comes out in April. Previously, the biggest gap between Bond films came back in the late 80s and early 90s when 007 fans had to wait six and half years between 1989 and 1995 to see the next film in the franchise. Let's hope we don't break this record this time around.
