This is not the first delay the film has had to go through, as the release date of the film has been postponed many time before. No Time to Die was originally scheduled for release in November 2019, but was postponed to February 2020, and then to April 2020. On 4 March 2020, MGM and Eon Productions announced that after “thorough evaluation of the global theatrical marketplace” they had postponed the release until 12 November 2020 in the United Kingdom and 25 November 2020 in the United States. In October 2020, No Time to Die was delayed again to 2 April 2021. The film has once again been delayed now, to 8 October 2021.
Five years after the capture of Ernst Stavro Blofeld, James Bond has left active service. He is approached by Felix Leiter, his friend and a CIA officer, who enlists his help in the search for Valdo Obruchev, a missing scientist. When it becomes apparent that Obruchev has been abducted, Bond must confront a villain whose schemes could see the deaths of millions. No Time to Die is a forthcoming spy film and the twenty-fifth instalment in the James Bond film series produced by Eon Productions. It stars Daniel Craig as the fictional British MI6 agent James Bond. The film is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga from a screenplay by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, Fukunaga, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
