No Time to Die was the first film to be delayed due to COVID-19, and despite a release six months later it’s not getting any last minute changes. Director Cary Fukunaga was asked by a fan as a comment on a recent Instagram post about the release date change and whether he and the post-production have used the extra time to “trim and polish” the film, and answered in the negative.

“Although more time would have been lovely, we had to put our pencils down when we finished our post-production window, which was thankfully before COVID shit everything else down,” Fukunaga said. He added, “Short answer is money. And although Bond is a big movie, we still have to weigh cost with value. And like anything, you could tinker endlessly. The movie is great as it is.”

The film, Daniel Craig’s last as 007, is set to release on November 12th.
