No Time to Die is the most anticipated upcoming spy film and the twenty-fifth installment of the James Bond movie show created by Eon Productions. The movie features Daniel Craig in his fifth and final excursion as James Bond, a fictional British MI6 agent. The movie is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, Robert Wade, Fukunaga, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Christoph Waltz, Rory Kinnear, and Ralph Fiennes all took their parts from past movies, including Rami Malek, Lashana Lynch, Ana de Armas, Dali Benssalah, Billy Magnussen, and David Dencik.
Production started in 2016. No Time to Die will be the first Bond film released by Universal Pictures to have obtained foreign publishing rights after the expiry of Sony Pictures’ contract since the release of Spectre in 2015. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, a division of United Artists Releasing, retains licenses for North America, including internet and broadcast rights worldwide. Universal will also release a film about the world’s physical home media.
Danny Boyle was initially attached to direct and co-write a screenplay with John Hodge. Both resigned due to artistic differences in August 2018; Fukunaga was confirmed a month later as Boyle’s successor. The largest of the parties had ratified the agreement by April 2019. Key photography lasted from April to October 2019 under the official name Bond 25. The last title was revealed in August 2019.
No time to die was planned for launch in April 2020 but was delayed twice worldwide as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is now scheduled to be released on 2 April 2021.

When is it going to launch in theaters?
No Time to Die was initially planned for release in November 2019, but was delayed to February 2020 and then to April 2020 following Boyle’s departure. The premiere in China and a national promotional tour planned for April 2020 were scrapped due to the early outbreak of COVID-19. By March 2020, the worldwide outbreak of the virus and the World Health Organization’s announcement of a pandemic sparked a joint open letter from two James Bond fan pages addressed to producers.
On 4 March 2020, MGM and Eon Productions confirmed that they had delayed the release until 12 November 2020 in the United Kingdom and 25 November 2020 in the United States, following a “thorough assessment of the global theatre industry.” No Time to Die was the very first major movie to be impacted by the pandemic.
As per Timeline Hollywood, which cited internal reports, the delay was not specifically linked to the coronavirus; moving the film to November would fit with the usual window for Bond launches, and MGM and Universal wanted to guarantee success in all global markets or risk losing the franchise. The schedule change would ensure all cinemas, especially those in China, South Korea, Japan, Italy, and France that were closed due to the pandemic, were accessible and functional.
What is going to happen?
James Bond has eventually retired, five years after the capture of antihero Ernst Stavro Blofeld, but, including all his other efforts to retire, this one doesn’t stay in place long. He’s confronted by his long-time friend Felix Leiter, a CIA agent he met all the way to the back to Casino Royale, to begin searching for missing scientist Valdo Obruchev, whose disappearance leads Bond to discover a terrorist attack that could destroy the world as he knows it, bringing him back to business.
