The next James Bond film No Time to Die has been pushed back to November.
The 25th 007 outing, set to be Daniel Craig’s last, was scheduled for a global release in April but just weeks away from release, MGM, Eon and Universal have decided for a seven-month delay.
In a statement, the three companies claim the decision was made “after careful consideration and thorough evaluation of the global theatrical marketplace”. It will now be released in UK cinemas on 12 November and in the US on 25 November.
The date falls in line with the more recent 007 entries which have all bowed in November. No Time to Die will now face competition from the Disney animation Raya and the Last Dragon, Godzilla vs Kong and King Richard, a drama starring Will Smith as the father of Venus and Serena Williams.
