Following Friday’s news that Warner Bros. has pushed back a number of its big 2020 and 2021 blockbusters amid the ongoing public health crisis, we’ve now got more release date movement – although this time its somewhat positive if you’re a fan of James Bond or Bill & Ted.
As revealed by the official Twitter account, Daniel Craig’s fifth and final outing as 007, No Time To Die, is now set to open a week earlier in the U.S., while it remains set for November 12th in the UK. The announcement is certainly a welcome one, given that rumours had been circulating about a possible further delay into 2021.

Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
