No Time T Die: Next promotional poster designed by MT for IMAX (India)
with the coronavirus still sending shockwaves throughout the industry (and the world), Universal and MGM may well have looked at the situation and decided to just move the 007 movie to its traditional November home. No Time to Die was supposed to open in November of last year but was delayed to April.
Moving it from November to November may have caused “The movie is doomed!” chatter, but (all due respect) this real-world problem gives the studios an excuse to do just that. Yes, it will now be five years between installments, but it also gives No Time to Die a shot at Skyfall-level legs. One reason Skyfall played as long as it did was due to the lack of comparative “big movie” competition. It was the only game in town for much of its run.
