- “James Bond 007: No Time to Die” has been postponed from April 2021 to October.
- Many fans are getting impatient and want to finally see the film, which was supposed to start last spring.
- Why doesn’t the new Bond blockbuster just appear as a stream?
“Not again!” was the reaction of many fans to the news that “No time to die“, the upcoming 25th film the “James Bond” series, was postponed to October 2021. The displeasure is understandable, as it is already the third postponement for the long-awaited blockbuster, which should actually be in the cinemas in April 2020.
The reasons are well known: the spread of the corona pandemic can only be slowly brought under control with vaccinations, so a film release in April is doubtful. In order to avoid beating the drum for a lot of money in the months before the release, just so that the film would suddenly be postponed, the MGM film studio decided on a new date as early as possible.
Annoying for all Bond fans, some of whom would be happy with the release of the film as a stream by now. At the beginning almost everyone agreed that a film like “No Time to Die” belongs on the big screen and that the badly affected cinemas desperately need the future start of a blockbuster.
But now impatience is slowly winning and fans want to see “No Time to Die” – no matter how. Indeed it was a stream release according to rumours in conversation. Netflix and Apple were keen on a deal with MGM, but no one was willing to pay MGM’s $ 600 million for the rights.
The big “James Bond” quiz!
Who has made the most Bond films so far?
At this point in time it has become unlikely that we will be able to see “No Time to Die” before it hits theaters. All that remains is the anticipation of a time that will allow a carefree visit to the cinema to experience Daniel Craig’s last assignment as 007.
