New Bond Movie Release Set: No Time to Delay

BY August 24, 2021

Well, I guess I’d better start watching the Bond movies for Retro Review on double-time. You see, the constant setbacks for No Time to Die made me think I had time to procrastinate. But no more. It is highly unlikely for them to push back the new Bond movie release date again. Uh, unless you’re Australian.

New Bond Movie Release Date Will Stay in October (for the US)

The original release date, once Danny Boyle left the project, was for April 2020. As we all know, though–in these trying times, etc.–a lot of plans went awry around that point. The studio (MGM) and producers then rescheduled the film for November 2020 for both the United Kingdom and the United States. By October, they’d rescheduled the film to April 2021. And then in January 2021, the film got its newest and final release dates.

The film will premiere September 28, 2021, in London at the Royal Albert Hall. It will open to the public in the United Kingdom two days later. American audiences, on the other hand, will have to wait until October 8, 2021. You can add it to your calendar now, though, because it’s unlikely to see anymore postponements or rescheduling. While we’ve seen movies like Venom: Let There Be Carnage delayed, it won’t happen here. MGM has already spent a ton of money in promotions that had to go nowhere due to all that shuffling. And they’re not willing to keep doing it.

There Is, However, More Shuffling in the Antipodes

MGM expects No Time to Die to make its target dates in the UK and the US. However, there will be a delay for the new Bond movie release date in Australia. Due to government-mandated lockdowns, MGM has pushed back the film’s Australian release date to November 11.

The Australian lockdown will remain in place, by the way, until 70% of the population is vaccinated. As only about 24% is currently vaxxed, estimates are that the country won’t reach its goal until October at the earliest. From Alabama, which is doing great vaccination-wise, I say insincerely, I wish them the best.
