A big setback for movie theaters: The premiere of the latest James Bond movie “No Time To Die” has been postponed again. The movie, starring Daniel Craig one last time as 007, is now scheduled for April 2, 2021.
This means that the film has been delayed by a year. In March, the producers announced that the premiere would be moving from April 2020 to November 2020, and now a new shift comes to April 2021. That means movie theaters will miss a big opportunity in the fall.
The response was not long. British and American media reported Sunday that “Cineworld”, the second largest cinema operator in the world, will close its doors indefinitely in the United States, Great Britain and Ireland this week. It will include more than 500 Regal cinemas in the US and 128 locations in the British Isles, according to unconfirmed reports.
The last James Bond movie to be called Specter was released in 2015. The movie raised more than 750 million euros. The budget for No Time To Die was over 200 million euros.
Oddly enough, pop phenomenon Billie Eilish actually submitted the music video for the movie’s lead single to YouTube.
