The runtime for the latest instalment in the 007 franchise, No Time to Die, has seemingly been revealed by Regal Cinemas to be 163 minutes (2 hours and 43 minutes long) – making Daniel Craig’s final outing as James Bond the longest in the franchise’s history.
Director Cary Fukanaga‘s No Time to Die will top the most recent instalment, Spectre, which clocked in at 160 minutes (2 hours and 40 minutes). While Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace had a runtime of 145 minutes (2 hours and 25 minutes) and 107 minutes (1 hour and 47 minutes) respectively.
If this is true (there has been no official confirmation from Universal Pictures as of yet), the lengthy runtime would make sense as No Time to Die will reportedly bring in strands from all the previous films and provide an overall conclusion to the Daniel Craig saga.
