Title No time to die it’s starting to get a little ironic.
The 25th entry in the Bond franchise, and the last one starring Daniel Craig as 007, has been rewritten once again due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, moving from April 2 to its new release date: October 8, 2021.
This is the second release date for the film this year. When it went from November 20, 2020 to 2021, the studio said it was “to be seen by a global theatrical audience.” “We understand that the delay will be disappointing for our fans,” the statement said.
The latest release date is one and a half years from when the film was originally scheduled to debut in April 2020. In March, No time to die was one of the first tentacles to power its release, aiming for a late November release. (Both of them Skyfall and Spectrum had previously opened in November). Now, with movie theaters only reopening certain markets, the studio is taking it out of 2020 entirely.
Besides Craig, No time to die will mark the return of Q by Ben Whishaw, Eve Moneypenny by Naomie Harris and M. by Ralph Fiennes. Captain MarvelMeanwhile, Lashana Lynch plays a new double 0, with Ana de Armas joining the cast as a CIA agent and potential Bond girl and Rami Malek as the villain.
