Millions of James Bond fans should have flocked to the cinema to catch the latest 007 outing No Time To Die on April 2 2020.

However, thanks to coronavirus, it was not to be – its red-carpet premiere was one of the first major events to be cancelled before the UK entered its first lockdown.

The film – the 25th outing for the secret agent and Daniel Craig’s last turn as Bond – brings with it a cast which includes Oscar winner Rami Malek as well as Lashana Lynch, Ana de Armas, Lea Seydoux and Naomie Harris.

But the film – like so many others – fell victim to the coronavirus pandemic and had its release date pushed back twice in the wake of the outbreak.

So just when is it now going to be released? Here’s what you need to know…

When is No Time To Die’s new release date?

No Time To Die is set to finally hit the big screen on September 30 – nearly 18 months after its original release date.

The film was one of the first major entertainment events to fall victim to the pandemic, which has led to the postponement of blockbuster films, music festivals, TV shows, sporting events and other major events in the entertainment calendar.

It was initially pushed back to November last year, with producers confirming the news in a tweet just weeks before the film was due to have its world premiere in London.

‘MGM, Universal and Bond producers, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, announced today that after careful consideration and thorough evaluation of the global theatrical marketplace, the release of NO TIME TO DIE will be postponed until November 2020,’ a tweet from the official account read.

However, in October, rising cases of the virus meant that the film got pushed back again, this time until April 2.

And then, in January, as it became clear that cinemas would not be able to open in three months as planned, No Time To Die was delayed once more.
