MGM, Universal and Bond producers, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, announced today that the release of the film will be postponed to November, 2020.
Fans of the James Bond spy film series would have to wait a while as the release date of the twenty-fifth film “No Time To Die” has been postponed until November amid fears around coronavirus.
The postponement is coming hours after fans of film series had called for the film to be postponed. Founders of two of the most popular fan sites – M16 Confidential and The James Bond Dossier, wrote an open letter to EON, MGM and Universal:
“It is by no means easy to say this: the release of No Time to Die should be postponed. It is time to put public health above marketing release schedules and the cost of cancelling publicity events. It’s just a movie.”
In February, the Beijing premiere of the film was cancelled as well as a promotional tour with talent in April due to the coronavirus epidemic.
