New Bond Film ‘No Time To Die’ Release Date Pushed Back Over Coronavirus ConcernsMarch 4, 2020
The release of the 25th Bond film No Time To Die was scheduled to hit theaters on April 10th but due to concerns over the coronavirus impact on the global theater marketplace, it is now set for a November 25th release.
The coronavirus outbreak, which has caused more than 3,000 deaths globally, the majority in Asia, has forced the closure of theaters in Italy, Korea, and China. China is the second-biggest movie market in the world behind the U.S.
No Time To Die, which was set to be one of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters of the spring, is the first major film to shift its opening due to the coronavirus. It wouldn’t be surprising to see more blockbuster films follow suit and delay the openings to ensure the best possible monetary outcome for the movie.
