The new James Bond movie, No Time To Die, is delayed once again and will now be with us a year later than originally planned.
I think we can safely say now that the Tenet experiment didn’t work. Christopher Nolan’s huge blockbuster was supposed to mark the first big blockbuster in cinemas post-lockdown. And whilst the movie did decent business in the UK, parts of the US remain locked down. Furthermore, Covid cases are spiking across Europe once again.
Thus, it feels perhaps a case of bowing to the inevitable that the new James Bond film has become the latest to delay its release (again). The film was the first big movie to shift release date earlier this year, and it was primed for a November 12th release. Now, here’s the latest on the film, which won’t now be with us until next April…
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. pic.twitter.com/NqHlU24Ho3

Given that the marketing campaign was back underway again, it’s clear this wasn’t the intended outcome. It’s also a huge blow to the cinema industry, now without a new major blockbuster film until December.
More as we hear it.
