It looks like you’ll have to reschedule that appointment with Mr. Bond again. The official James Bond Twitter account took to the platform this afternoon to confirm the new release date for the 25th instalment of the series ‘No Time to Die’. You can officially expect James Bond to return to the big screen on the 8th of October this year.

It is the fourth time the movie has been delayed, after the initial release date back in April 2020 was scrapped thanks to that pesky virus we’d rather forget. The next release date was made official in November and then it was subsequently moved to April 2021. The waiting game is now back on with the date being pushed until October 8th 2021.
The delays come as no real surprise to fans, who have understandably given up much of their initial hope. Coronavirus cases continue to skyrocket in much of the world, and the film’s director has purported his intention for the movie to be “seen by a worldwide theatrical audience”.
It will take an additional 8 months of waiting for fans to catch 007 flaunt his new watches and Aston Martins, so we hope the movie is worth the wait. If the latest trailer is anything to go by, there’s a pretty good chance it will.
