“No Time to Die” finally hits cinemas after Covid delays

By Ninian Carter

September 28, 2021 - The new James Bond movie, No Time To Die, finally opens after three delays due to Covid-19. The 25th Bond film from Eon Productions is part of the world’s third top-grossing movie franchise.

The release date for the latest James Bond movie, “No Time to Die” has slipped three times since its original April 2020 date.

The outbreak of the Covid-19 global pandemic in March last year put paid to that, as cinemas around the world closed their doors and global population lockdowns began.

Eon’s James Bond franchise is one of the most valuable movie franchises in the world, having earned around $7 billion at the global box office – placing it third only behind Star Wars and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in first place. In 2021, “Skyfall” grossed more than $1 billion at the global box office alone.

“No Time to Die” – a film that cost an estimated $200 million to make – marks Daniel Craig’s final outing as the British secret agent.

The movie premiere takes place in London on September 28, 2021, opening around the world in the ensuing days.
