The release of the newest entree in the long running James Bond film franchise ‘No Time To Die’ has been post-poned due to fears surrounding the coronavirus.
As The New York Post reports:
James Bond has “No Time To Die” — and no time to deal with the fallout of a public-health crisis.
MGM, Universal and Bond producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli made the following announcement Tuesday via Twitter: “After careful consideration and thorough evaluation of the global theatrical marketplace, the release of ‘No Time To Die’ will be postponed until November 2020.”
The stalled release date comes hours after franchise fans called for the global release of “No Time To Die” to be delayed amid fears about the coronavirus outbreak, reports the Guardian.
The official premiere of the film, 52-year-old Daniel Craig’s swan song as 007, was set for March 31 at the Royal Albert Hall, with a US release date set on April 10. (The film’s China release date was previously scrapped in mid-February.)
Several popular fan sites wrote open letters to the film’s producers urging them to postpone the date of the film’s release.
