It’s expected upcoming James Bond film No Time to Die will have its release date again, with the movie now targeting a fall 2021 premiere.
No Time to Die’s release date is expected to be delayed for a third time. The upcoming James Bond film was the first major studio blockbuster to shift release dates at the outset of the coronavirus pandemic, initially moving from April 2020 to November 2020. It then moved again to April 2021 (where it’s currently scheduled), when it became clear a fall release wouldn’t be feasible. The pandemic remains ongoing, with new cases surging across the world. A majority of U.S. movie theaters remain closed, including those in key markets like New York and Los Angeles.
Heading into 2021, there was hope things would start to improve, especially after Wonder Woman 1984’s opening weekend led to an increase in theater stock prices. However, with the COVID-19 vaccine rollout slower than expected and case numbers showing no signs of slowing down, the prevailing belief is multiple 2021 movies will see their release dates delayed again. The first domino fell when Morbius moved to October, and now No Time to Die is supposedly following suit.
According to Deadline, it’s believed No Time to Die will be pushed back to some point in fall 2021. A new specific release date has not been set yet. It is worth mentioning this isn’t official, but “several sources” have told the outlet another delay will happen. No Time to Die’s “promotional partners” have also reportedly been informed of a possible delay.
