‘No Time to Die’ Unlikely to Get On-Demand Release, to Wait Until Cinemas Reopen

The latest James Bond film starring Daniel Craig has been pushed back from its Mar 16 release to November due to the coronavirus crisis, but might get further delay.

AceShowbiz -James Bond producers aren’t prepared to launch new movie “No Time to Die” until theatres reopen amid the coronavirus crisis.

The film, starring Daniel Craig, was supposed to hit cinemas on 16 May, but producers opted to stall the release due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

It is now scheduled to be released in November, but according to Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper the movie won’t reach audiences until movie theaters reopen – with bosses apparently refusing to consider an on-demand release.

“If it has to wait till next year then so be it,” said a source close to the production. “There are hundreds of millions of dollars involved here. Release it when audiences feel safe to return. But it’s a nerve-racking call.”

“No Time to Die” is set to be Craig’s final movie as 007, after playing Ian Fleming’s beloved secret agent in “Casino Royale“, “Quantum of Solace“, “Skyfall” and “Spectre“.
