Still 'no time to die?' The upcoming James Bond film's release falls victim to the coronavirus once again

The makers of the new James Bond movie – which has already had its release date pushed back once due to the pandemic – on Friday said it would not now be released until April 2021.

No Time to Die, the 25th installment of the fictional British spy saga, sees Bond drawn out of retirement in Jamaica by his old friend and CIA agent Felix Leiter.

It is expected to be actor Daniel Craig’s last outing as 007, after starring in 4 previous films.

The movie had been initially set for a London premiere on March 31, 2020 before a rollout worldwide in April.

As the coronavirus pandemic took hold in March, MGM, Universal, and Bond producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli announced they were delaying the release until November 12, with a US launch on November 25.

Then on Friday, they said the film would be delayed further until April 2 “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,” they said. – Rappler.com
