The release of the James Bond movie “No Time to Die” has been delayed yet again, this time to 2021, mainly because of the consequences of COVID-19 on the theatrical company.
MGM, Universal and Bond producers, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, claimed on Twitter on Friday that the 25th installment in the franchise will now open globally on April 2, 2021.
“No Time To Die” was initially meant to open in April 2020 but was pushed back to Nov. 12 in the U.K. and Nov. 20 in the U.S. It was one of the first Hollywood movies to abandon its launch ahead of cinemas in the U.S. shut down in mid-March due to the fact of the coronavirus pandemic. The film from director Cary Joji Fukunaga stars Daniel Craig as 007, Rami Malek, Lashana Lynch and Ana de Armas.
Other big studios have made very similar choices about the earlier few weeks.
Cinemas remain shut in New York and Los Angeles, two of North America’s most important marketplaces.

They consist of Marvel’s “Black Widow” and Steven Spielberg’s “West Aspect Tale.” Universal Photographs delayed “Candyman” to up coming yr.
Some key releases are even now planned for 2020. They incorporate “Wonder Lady 1984,” which was pushed back to Christmas right after numerous delays and Kenneth Branagh’s mystery “Death on the Nile.” It is now established for Dec. 18.
