Producers of No Time to Die they are focused on achieving more success in the UK and have no intention of changing the release dates of the 25th film in the franchise.
Although COVID cases have risen and confidence in movie theaters has declined in the United States, producers of No Time to Die they have no intention of changing the release dates of the 25th film from James Bond. His box office hopes are pinned on the UK.
Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson, those responsible for Eon Productions, they have the ultimate decision-making power over the Bond franchise and not the film’s distributor, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, recently acquired by Amazon.
According to a source close to Eon who has spoken to Vulture, they have lost a lot of money moving [Sin Tiempo para Morir]; marketing has gone stale. The Broccolis care more about the UK than anything else: make it a big hit in the UK, a decent hit in the US and the rest of the world.
Hope is hoped for box office results
Although the UK has also been hit by an increase in cases during the summer, the country’s vaccination rates are significantly higher than in the US and continue to rise at a faster rate. The cinema business has not been booming in the UK, as the highest grossing film this year has been Peter Rabbit 2: La Fuga, with just over $ 27 million at the box office. However, producers hope that No Time to Die, which has already been delayed three times, boosted the box office in the UK. The film opens on September 30 in the UK, a week earlier than the rest of the world.
No Time to Die, directed and co-written by Cary Joji Fukunaga, it will be the fifth and last time Daniel Craig play James Bond. He will face the villain of Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody, 2018), Lyutsifer Safin, along with a new agent 007 played by Lashana Lynch (Captain Marvel, 2019). La Dra. Madeleine Swann de Léa Seydoux (The life of Adele, 2013) and the Blofeld of Christoph Waltz (Damn bastards, 2009) return from the previous film, Spectre (2015).
The film will open exclusively in UK theaters on September 30 and in the United States on October 8.
