Daniel Craig as James Bond in No Time to Die

  • No Time to Die was earlier slated to release April 2 in India
  • It will now open November 12 in the UK, no India date yet
  • First major movie to delay release due to coronavirus

James Bond will return, just a while later. No Time to Die — the next Bond movie — has seen its release date pushed over seven months due to concerns around the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. Instead of opening early April globally, No Time to Die will now arrive in November, the Bond producers and distributors have announced. The new Bond film has been handed a November 12 release date in the UK, and a November 25 release date in the US. A new release date in India for No Time to Die has not been set, though it was with the UK prior to the delay.

“MGM, Universal [Pictures], 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,” posts across the official Bond social media accounts read Wednesday. “The film will be released in the UK on November 12, 2020 with worldwide release dates to follow, including the US launch on November 25, 2020.”

This is hardly the first delay for the 25th Bond movie, though it's the first that has arisen outside of its control. No Time to Die was originally slated to arrive in October–November 2019 but was then pushed to February 2020 after it brought on director Cary Joji Fukunaga to replace the outgoing Danny Boyle. Several months later, it was pushed again by two months to April 2020. That was the release date until the new coronavirus-driven delay. It becomes the first major movie to delay its release due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

No Time to Die will now release November 12 in the UK, and November 25 in the US. We've reached out to Universal Pictures India for a new release date in India.
