The recent announcement that the 25th James Bond film No Time To Die would have its April 2020 release delayed until November 2020 has shocked fans worldwide.
After years of waiting for the Bond film and to see what is being touted as Daniel Craig’s final performance as 007, being informed they would have to wait an added seven months was something of a surprising blow to 007 fans.
With the film’s planned March 31 world premiere in London, an April 2 release in the UK, an April 10 release in the U.S. and a planned premiere in China in April, James Bond was just about to return to movie screens. Then on March 4th, MGM and EON Films made the announcement it would all be postponed until November 2020.
The publicity campaign and excitement for the newest 007 all came to an abrupt and screeching halt.
The reactions from Bond fans around the world has been stunned disbelief. After the extended wait following 2015’s Spectre for the next Bond film to begin, an exasperatingly tumultuous production and now four release dates the film has had it’s not hard to understand fans feeling a bit bummed about this seemingly never-ending, rough road to finally get to see No Time To Die.
As I’ve frequently done throughout this crazed odyssey No Time To Die has taken us, I made a video about this recent delay announcement. This time I try to combat the negatively and distress Bond fans are feeling and attempt to find the positive things that we can all take away from this latest delay for No Time To Die. Hopefully, it will brighten up things and help restore a little optimism.
James Bond will indeed return folks! But, let’s again say that phrase we’ve repeated quite a few times during this saga Bond fans – it will just be a longer wait than anyone had planned to see 007 return.
Hopefully, that will be the last time we have to say that…
