In China, there is no definite release date for James Bond: No Time To Die – Is there going to be another delay?
THE JAMES BOND FILM No Time To Die has yet to receive a definitive release date in China, and given how much money the Daniel Craig film needs till break even at the box office, may a further postponement to 2022 be unavoidable?
After five delays, the next James Bond film No Time To Die is due to visit UK theaters on September 30 and US theaters a week later. Other Hollywood blockbusters have struggled in the epidemic world, including Daniel Craig’s fifth and final 007 film, which requires a massive international distribution to be lucrative. According to Variety, China has yet to set release dates for major films that have already been released in the United States, the United Kingdom, and other countries.
Black Widow, Jungle Cruise, Space Jam: A New Legacy, and The Suicide Squad are among these blockbusters.
Of course, all of these films had hybrid releases, with audiences able to watch them in theaters or on streaming services like Disney+ and HBO Max.
While in China, future audiences for these films are dwindling as pirated versions of Hollywood blockbusters become freely available within hours of their US debut.
Because these blockbusters’ release dates have been put on hold at the Chinese box office, No Time To Die may not be released in the world’s largest film market in just a few weeks.

“Holy smokes – #NoTimeToDie does not have a confirmed release in China,” tweeted Bond new site MI6 HQ in response to the article. This. Is. Going. To. Change. Everything.”
The same outlet recently calculated that No Time To Die’s box office chances aren’t looking promising for the film’s current release dates, even with a simultaneous Chinese release.
The cost of the latest Bond film was publicly registered with the UK’s Companies House, according to their well-researched article.
Due to interest costs, the overall sum increased to £214 million from £199.5 million.
After a year, that figure has climbed to roughly £226 million, which translates to around $314 million in US dollars.
