MGM/Universal has announced that the next James Bond film, No Time to Die, will be delayed for release until November, rather than its scheduled April 10 theatrical release.
The official James Bond twitter account shared the news, citing the "global theatrical marketplace" as the reason for the delay. Though no specifics about what that means were given, the postponement comes as several films, including Disney's live-action Mulan remake, have been postponed or canceled for release in China amid the ongoing global outbreak of Coronavirus, a high risk factor for theater-goers.
