James Bond can do a lot of cool things, except make it to the big screen. Executives are postponing theatrical releases left and right and the latest Bond movie, “No Time to Die,” seems like it will get pushed yet again.
The Bond film was supposed to be released in November of 2019 but was delayed due to a director change. The movie was finished and set for release in April 2020 but the pandemic hit and it was pushed to November 2020. It is currently slated for April but executives are expected to push it again as the pandemic rolls on.
Many films are set to suffer the same fate including “Morbius,” a spin-off of “Spider-Man,” Sony’s upcoming “Cinderella,” and Disney’s “The King’s Man.”
ViacomCBS executives are crossing their fingers that they can keep the release of “Top Gun: Maverick” in its scheduled spot of July 2. This may be a pipe dream but, let’s just say, the studios “feel the need for speed!”
