The 25th instalment of the Bond franchise will be tear-jerking for the hard-core Bond fans as it will be final chapter of the highly successful spy drama series who surely cannot wait longer, however, the recent world health crisis of Coronavirus outbreak has now made them plead for its postponement.
On the day that the box office at China opened to advance booking for No Time to Die, there have been calls for deferring the earlier scheduled release date for the film.' The article mentioned that writers of MI6-HQ, which is reportedly the 'biggest Bond fan blog' has penned an open letter in which they have urged all the parties involved with the movie to 'put public health above marketing release schedules.'
Publicity tours and promotional activities for 007 in China, South Korea, and Japan have already been cancelled over increasing threat of coronavirus. The release of the last 007 movie in Hong Kong was pushed to April 30th. The world premiere for No Time To Die set for March 31st in London. Hundreds of fans and celebrities from around the world will be flying to the UK to attend the world premiere of the movie. In India ‘No Time To Die’ comes to cinema halls on April 06.
Placing the wellbeing of fans and their families around the world as the priority, the letter requested to delay the release of the movie until the summer ‘when experts expect the epidemics to have peaked and to be under control’. “We have all waited over 4 years for this film. Another few months will not damage the quality of the film and only help the box-office for Daniel Craig’s final hurrah.” concluded the letter by David Leigh, the founder of the most visited fan site!
Meanwhile, the final theatrical release trailer of the Daniel Craig starrer arrives on March 09.
