The entertainment industry, like so many other industries, have experience some major setbacks since quarantine and lockdown orders have been mandated because of the coronavirus. Namely, big blockbuster film releases have been affected with production stoppages as well as theater premiere delays.
One such film on the radar for so many fans is the upcoming James Bond project titled No Time to Die starring Daniel Craig. The plot follows Bond in retirement in Jamaica but is quickly taken out of his newfound life because of an old CIA friend requesting his help. What ensues then is a trail of mystery surrounding a new villain who’s equipped with new technology capable of unspeakable destruction.
In its initial release date, the film was slated to come out on November 25th but now the date has been moved earlier to November 20. The reveal was officially announced on the movie’s official Twitter account with the caption, “the return of old friends.” It’s important to note that this will be Daniel Craig’s final run as the hero James Bond.
“This is it. That’s it, it’s over,” Craig stated in an interview earlier this year. “But I, for one, am incredibly happy I got the chance to come back and do another one, because… this movie, whatever people think of it — who knows what people are going to think of it — everybody, including these people here, just put everything into it. And we did our best. And it feels like that. I know it sounds simplistic, but we did.”
The cast of No Time to Die also includes Ana de Armas, Lashana Lynch, Naomie Harris, Lea Seydoux, Ben Winshaw, Jeffrey Wright, Rami Malek, and Ralph Fiennes.
