Only a few days after ticket sales opened in the UK, the release of No Time To Die, the 25th Bond movie, has been put back until November 2020 – presumably because of worries about how the coronavirus might impact worldwide ticket sales.
The move was announced today via the official James Bond Twitter account – the film was due out here on 2 April.

Another tweet had the new dates: November 12th in the UK and November 25 in the US with other worldwide release dates to follow.
That’s a long wait! In the meantime check out this Bond featurette, where Cary Joji Fukunaga, director and co-writer of the upcoming film, talks about the disconnect between James Bond, five years retired, and a changed world – one in which his friends and family are in danger.
