James Bond's producers are so confident that the movie will be a hit in the theaters that they're willing to push back their release date until April 2, 2021, a year later than originally planned. Scroll down for the latest news about 007!
- The name of British hero James Bond was actually inspired by a bird watching book. Ian Fleming was searching for a name “as ordinary as possible” so he decided to call the famous agent after the ornithologist Dr James Bond.
- In Fleming’s novels, James Bond became 007 at the age of 38. From all the previous actors that have portrayed the role, Daniel Craig is the only one to have started at the same age as the secret agent in the long running series.
- “No Time to Die” the 25th instalment of the Bond saga was originally scheduled to premiere here in U.S. on November 20, 2020.
Universal, MGM & Bond producers, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson announced today in a statement the postponement of the new Bond movie "No Time to Die" until April 2, 2021, in order to be seen by as wide an audience as possible because it's made for a theatrical experience to be enjoyed worldwide.
James Bond producers said: “We understand the delay will be disappointing to our fans but we now look forward to sharing ‘No Time To Die’ next year."
So it looks like we will just have to wait a little longer until we finally see Daniel Craig in his last outing as the enigmatic spy, and Ana de Armas as the gorgeous new Bond Girl, Paloma. Theaters are sure to be pack next spring!
