No Time to Die (Film)
No Time to Die is an upcoming spy film from Eon Productions, and it will be the 25th in the James Bond franchise. Daniel Craig reprises his role as the fictional British MI6 agent in this fifth installment. It will be Craig’s final Bond picture, he has stated. Cary Joji Fukunaga directs the film, which is based on a screenplay by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, Fukunaga, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
In 2016, work on the project began. It will be Universal Pictures’ first Bond picture, which has acquired worldwide distribution rights after Sony Pictures’ contract expired with the release of Spectre in 2015. United Artists Releasing, a subsidiary of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, has North American rights, as well as worldwide digital and television rights. Universal also owns the worldwide rights to physical home media.
Originally, Danny Boyle was set to direct and co-write the screenplay with John Hodge. Both left in August 2018 owing to creative differences, and Fukunaga was named Boyle’s replacement a month later. By April of this year, the majority of the cast had committed. Under the working title Bond 25, principal photography took place from April to October 2019. In August of this year, the final title was revealed.
No Time to Die will have its world debut at the Royal Albert Hall in London on September 28, 2021, after being delayed by Boyle’s departure and then by the COVID-19 epidemic. It will be released in theaters on September 30, 2021, in the United Kingdom, and October 8, 2021, in the United States.
No Time to Die Release Date
No Time to Die was supposed to be released in November 2019, however, due to Danny Boyle’s resignation, it was pushed back to February 2020, then to April 2020. Due to the early breakout of COVID-19 in China, the premiere and a statewide publicity tour scheduled for April 2020 were canceled. The global spread of the virus, as well as the World Health Organization’s proclamation of a pandemic, inspired two James Bond fan sites to write a joint open letter to the filmmakers in March 2020.
The letter requested that the film’s distribution be postponed to reduce the risk of disease spread and to assure the film’s commercial success.
The film was delayed from October 8, 2021, to January 2021. For the United Kingdom, an earlier release date of 30 September 2021 was confirmed in February 2021. In August 2021, it was reported that the global premiere will take place on September 28, 2021, at the Royal Albert Hall in London; however, due to national lockdowns in Australia, the release date was pushed back from September 30 to November 11, 2021. It will also be screened at the Zurich Picture Festival on the same day as the world premiere, making it the first Bond film to be included in an official selection.
