The Covid-19 virus is causing pandemonium around the world, and many film studios are taking up arms to protect both their audience and the potential box office of some of 2020’s biggest releases.
No country or character seems to be exempt from Covid-19’s reach, including James Bond himself, and now the release of No Time To Die has been moved from its original planned April 9 release date to November 12, 2020.
This decision has been made by Eon productions and Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, have announced that after careful consideration and thorough evaluation of the global theatrical marketplace that it is best that No Time To Die’s release be postponed till November 2020.
I must say that it’s an impressive and responsible turn on behalf of both everyone at Eon Productions and Universal Pictures, and is a great step to preserve audience safety, along with the box office success that everyone wants to see No Time To Die be.
While I like the rest of you had been hoping to see Bond’s return to the big screen in just over a month’s time, I don’t mind waiting a little longer to witness this awesome movie and the return of Daniel Craig as James Bond.
No Time To Die will now arrive in cinemas on November 12.
