No Time To Die was originally supposed to open in April 2020 but was pushed back to 12 November in the UK and 20 November in the US. It was one of the first Hollywood films to abandon its release before cinemas in the US shut down in mid-March because of the coronavirus pandemic. It was then moved to April 2021.

The film from director Cary Joji Fukunaga stars Daniel Craig as 007, Rami Malek as the primary antagonist, Lashana Lynch, and Ana de Armas.

The film also features actors Lea Seydoux, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Ralph Fiennes, Rory Kinnear, Christoph Waltz, Billy Magnussen, Jeffrey Wright.

The Walt Disney Co delayed the planned 2020 releases of a handful of major movies until 2021. They include Marvel’s Black Widow and Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story. Universal delayed Candyman to next year.
