The theatrical opening of No Time to Die aka Bond 25 has been postponed until April 2, 2021. This is the fourth or fifth postponement…actually I’ve lost count. The original plan was for a November 2019 debut, and then it was February 2020, and then April 2020 and then 11.20.20 due to Covid, and now this latest shift. Call it five. Forget theatrical until next year or until a vaccine.
Variety excerpt: “The decision to move the upcoming Bond entry into next year is not entirely surprising considering New York and Los Angeles, the two biggest U.S. markets, are closed and coronavirus cases in Europe have started to rise again. Given Bond’s global appeal, the sequel’s backers wanted to wait until audiences across the world felt safe returning to theaters,” blah blah.
