The premiere of the 25th film about special agent James Bond “No Time to Die” was postponed again. Now the film will not be released in November this year, but on April 2 next, Variety reports.
It is noted that the film will be released one year after the release date, which was originally planned.
As the newspaper notes, the postponement of the release of “No Time to Die” will be a blow to cinemas. Now the next loud premiere will be the cartoon “Soul”, which is scheduled for release on November 20. Dune and Wonder Woman 1984 is slated to premiere in December, but plans may change as well.
Due to the fact that now the Bond premiere overlaps with the release of “Fast and the Furious 9”, Universal was forced to postpone the film premiere. Now the new part of “Fast and the Furious” will be released on May 28, 2021, reports Deadline.
In the story, Bond returns to service after retirement. He is asked for help by an old friend – CIA agent Felix Leiter, who wants to find the kidnapped scientist.
Daniel Craig agreed to return to the role of Bond in the new film, despite the fact that he had previously turned it down. Four films with the actor’s participation grossed $ 2.9 billion at the worldwide box office, while Craig’s fee was about $ 55 million.
In August 2017, Danny Boyle left the film director’s chair “due to creative differences.” The new director of the picture was Carey Zoji Fukunaga.
It was originally planned that “No Time to Die” will be released on March 31, but the premiere of the film was postponed due to the coronavirus.
