In the United States, the No Time to Die release date has been moved up five days from November 25th to November 20, 2020. The U.K. release date is still on November 12.
No reason for the No Time to Die release date change was given, though the move comes just a day after the Wonder Woman 1984 date change was announced. While Warner Bros. moved the Wonder Woman sequel back to October 2, the marquees you can see in this tweet at first said November 25 (Thanksgiving) before the studio quickly corrected them to say October 2.
Did MGM get spooked and make the change so they are first out of the gate in case Wonder Woman 1984 does eventually move to November 25? We might never know if that never happens, but it’s certainly interesting.
The No Time to Die release date was previously set for U.K. theaters on April 2nd and in the U.S. on April 10, 2020. The closing of theaters due to current events made that impossible.
No Time to Die has been rated PG-13 for sequences of violence and action, some disturbing images, brief strong language and some suggestive material. Earlier this year, the film’s runtime was reported by several theater chains to be 2 hours and 43 minutes (or 163 minutes), making it the longest James Bond movie ever. The previous film, SPECTRE, had been the longest at 2 hours and 28 minutes.
In No Time to Die, Bond (Daniel Craig) has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help.
The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
No Time to Die stars Daniel Craig, Rami Malek, Léa Seydoux, Lashana Lynch, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, with Jeffrey Wright, and Ralph Fiennes as “M.” The film also stars Ana de Armas, Rory Kinnear, Dali Benssalah, David Dencik, and Billy Magnussen.
The movie, from Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions, Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios (MGM), and Universal Pictures International, is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga (Beasts of No Nation, True Detective). Daniel Craig is returning for his fifth and final film as Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007.
Billie Eilish sings the No Time to Die theme song. The 18-year-old artist wrote the song with her brother, Finneas. Billie is the youngest artist in history to write and record a James Bond theme song. Hans Zimmer will compose the score for the James Bond movie.
Filmmaker Cary Joji Fukunaga captured select sequences of No Time to Die using IMAX’s extremely high-resolution 15/70mm film cameras to deliver IMAX audiences greater scope and breathtaking image quality.
In addition to being shot with IMAX film cameras and the exclusive expanded aspect ratio, the No Time to Die IMAX release will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience with proprietary IMAX DMR (Digital Re-mastering) technology.
