License to Kill: No Time to Die Delayed due to Coronavirus

No Time to Die has been delayed seven months due to coronavirus. MGM, Universal and Bond producers, Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, announced that after careful consideration and thorough evaluation of the global theatrical marketplace, the release of No Time To Die will be postponed until November 2020. The film will be released in the U.K. on November 12, 2020 with worldwide release dates to follow, including the US launch on November 25, 2020.

Earlier this week, 007 fans had posted an open letter to the companies behind No Time to Die, requesting them to push back the film’s release due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. The announcement makes No Time to Die the first major movie tentpole to change its release plans because of coronavirus. Globally, the movie industry is looking to lose approximately $5 billion USD due to closed theaters in countries like China, where coronavirus has taken a massive toll.

No Time to Die Delayed due to Coronavirus
After careful consideration and thorough evaluation of the global theatrical marketplace, the release of No Time To Die will be postponed until November 2020.

On top of No Time to Die, coronavirus continues to be a serious concern around the world. Various publishers, including DC Comics, cancelled convention appearances; Mission: Impossible 7 paused production in Italy. Due to the severity of the outbreak, film studios are developing coronavirus strategy teams as they tackle the situation. And now, the team behind No Time to Die has made the decision to postpone the film’s release globally for several months.

Written by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade (Spectre, Skyfall), Cary Joji Fukunaga, Scott Z. Burns (Contagion, The Bourne Ultimatum) and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Killing Eve, Fleabag). In No Time To Die, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica.  His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
