No Time To Die is really killing the fans because of continuous delays! Bond Franchise fans have been waiting eagerly for this movie as it is Daniel Craig’s last movie as James Bond. It is not like the film is incomplete; it is all set to hit the screens, but the screens are not ready yet. No Time To Die was pushed back from April 2020 to November 2020, and now it has shifted to 2021.

Initially, the film was supposed to appear on the screens on 3rd April in the UK and on 8th April in the US. The official Twitter handle of the franchise informed the fans about the delay’s news, and none were happy.

He had mentally and emotionally finished the film!

No Time To Die Streaming Platform: Why are they not releasing it on streaming services?
The big streaming services like Apple and Netflix indeed want to acquire the movie, but it hasn’t happened yet. MGM studio lost almost $30 million to $50 million because of the delays. Other studios like Sony and Paramount have pocketed tens of millions by selling Greyhound, Coming 2 America, and some other movies to the streaming services during the pandemic. However, it’s not that easy for No Time To Die, the production cost of the film is almost $250 million, and the studio is looking for a deal of $600 million.
Also, many promotional partners like Omega watches, Land Rover, Heineken, etc. will not be thrilled with just streaming services. Hence, an MGM spokesperson announced that the movie is not for sale, and it has been postponed to preserve the theatrical express for the audience.
No Time To Die Cast: Who will be next 007?
This is Daniel Craig’s final outing as James Bond, other than him; we have Lea Seydoux, Ralph Fiennes, Naomi Harris, Ben Wishaw, Rory Kinnear, and Jeffrey Wright.
Rami Malek will play Safin. In a video, Malek stated that as a villain, he would make sure that Bond doesn’t have easy in his 25th outing. Ana de Armas is playing Paloma, and we have Lashana Lynch as Nomi. She will get the title of 007 after Daniel Craig, for which she recently faced a lot of backlashes.
