No Time To Die: What is the Exact Reason Behind the Delayed Release Date?
Well, the first reason being the film’s budget No Time To Die makers have invested around $250 million for the making of the film, so to gain the profit, they have to look for a date in which they will be able to release the movie on theaters and earn some profit.
The second reason being the film’s significant earnings mostly comes from coming from the UK and European market. Currently, in Europian Countries, the COVID-19 virus is once again on the rise, so there are some critical factors associated with the release as well. If they would have gone for the November release, then they might not have earned any profit. So that could be one of the many reasons for the delay.

Update 1: No Time to Die Release Date Delayed Till October 2021

The Official Twitter account of ‘James Bond’ has confirmed the news the film was scheduled to release this April, 2nd 2021, but it has now been further delayed till October 2021. MGM and Eon have taken this decision because they are planning to get a theatrical release for No Time to Die, and as of now, because of the new strain of Covid-19, the number of cases has been growing rapidly, so as the situation is not likely to change, maybe that is why the studio might have taken this decision to delay the film till October 2021.

This marks the fourth release date change for Daniel Craig’s final James Bond movie, No Time to Die. As disappointing as it sounds, we as fans still have to wait for six more months to witness this movie on big screens. There were also a few reports revealed earlier about the OTT release of the film Netflix, Apple, and many other OTT platforms were willing to buy the distribution rights of the film. Still, the studio showed no interest in those offers. Let’s hope that the situation will become routine within the course of the next six months, and the coronavirus situation will be dealt with, and then finally, we will be able to witness No Time to Die on the big screen.
