MGM, Universal and Bond producers, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli have pushed back the opening “No Time To Die” from April to November due to Coronavirus concerns. Looks like True blue fans will have to wait a little longer to witness Daniel Craig’s last role as the iconic James Bond.

According to the film’s official Twitter page, “MGM, Universal and Bond producers, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, announced today that after careful consideration and thorough evaluation of the global theatrical marketplace, the release of NO TIME TO DIE will be postponed until November 2020,”

An early April release to the rest of the world would follow the movie’s initially set premiere in London in March 31. However, the film’s publicity tour is canceled and the release has been pushed back to the end of the year following the recent increase of coronavirus cases.

“With the coronavirus reaching pandemic status, it is time to put public health above marketing release schedules and the cost of canceling publicity events,” fansite MI6-HQ wrote in a letter.

“With a month to go before No Time To Die opens worldwide, community spread of the virus is likely to be peaking in the United States,” the letter added. “There is a significant chance that cinemas will be closed, or their attendance severely reduced, by early April. Even if there are no legal restrictions on cinemas being open, to quote M in Skyfall, ‘how safe do you feel?’ “
