‘James Bond: No Time To Die’ release pushed back due to Coronavirus!

The latest installment to the James Bond series was originally only a month away. But now with the recent concerns of the coronavirus the film has now Been pushed back seven months! It is now looking at a November 2020 release.


Screen Rant reports, No Time to Die's release date has been delayed seven months due to coronavirus. The film had already been impacted by the outbreak of the disease, with its Chinese premiere and press tour cancelled due to concerns. However, No Time to Die remained on track for its theatrical rollout in April 2020, with MGM putting together a very visible marketing campaign to hype up Daniel Craig's final adventure as James Bond (including a rather expensive Super Bowl TV spot). Excitement was continuing to mount for the movie, which was projected to possibly break the all-time James Bond opening weekend record at the box office.


Coronavirus has been making quite a stir within the industry this week with reports of major companies pulling out of sold out conventions such as Sony ditching PAX East, and Amazon, Facebook and Twitter all pulling out of SXSW. So it was only a matter of time before this sort of thing hit red carpet premieres.


The news broke on the official James Bond Twitter account, it was announced the film has been pushed back from its original April 2020 date and will now debut on November 12, 2020in the U.K. and November 25, 2020 in the U.S. Other worldwide release dates will be revealed later. Check it out below.
