The start of the agent thriller with Daniel Craig had to be postponed several times due to the ongoing pandemic.
In many countries the movie theaters are currently closed. James Bond fans are now used to waiting. Originally, the premiere of “No Time to Die” should have taken place in October 2019. Due to a change in the director’s chair – from Danny Boyle to Cary Joji Fukunaga – and due to improvements to the script, the start was initially postponed to February, then to April 2020.
After the outbreak of the coronavirus, the producers moved the date to November 2020, later to March 2021 and now to October. This time, the creators did not make an explanation in the short notice on the official 007 website.
The 25th Bond film was one of the first to be postponed due to the pandemic. Since then, numerous other movies have followed, including Hollywood blockbusters such as “Top Gun Maverick” and “Black Widow”. Meanwhile, Warner announced that this year all of his films, including “Godzilla vs Kong”, “Dune” and “Matrix 4”, will be released in US cinemas and on their own streaming service HBOMax. That caused outrage in the cinema industry.
The science fiction film “Bios” with Tom Hanks in the lead role will not be released until August instead of April, as the Studio Universal announced yesterday. Originally, the film should have been in theaters last October.
