No Time to Die F9

James Bond may have No Time to Die, but he also has no time for November as his film has moved to next year — prompting a move for F9 as well. Deadline reports that the 007 movie will now open on April 2nd, which is Easter Weekend.

The studio said in a statement, “MGM, Universal and Bond producers, Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, today announced the release of No Time To Die, the 25th film in the James Bond series, will be delayed until 2 April in order to be seen by a worldwide theatrical audience. We understand the delay will be disappointing to our fans but we now look forward to sharing No Time To Die next year.”

As a result of that move, F9, which was set to open that weekend, will move to Memorial Day 2021. The Fast film was originally set to release in May of this year. It will now go up against Disney’s live-action Cruella and Mark Wahlberg’s Infinite.
