The movie release schedule is on the move once again as No Time to Die has moved out of 2020 completely.
As the coronavirus pandemic took hold across the world, No Time to Die was one of the first movies to change its release date. Since that time it has moved slightly by a week as the rest of the schedule shifted around it, but there were no more major changes.
On Friday it was announced that No Time to Die has now moved to April 2, 2021, now a full year after its original release date that was set in April 2020.
MGM, Universal and Bond producers, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, today announced the release of NO TIME TO DIE, the 25th film in the James Bond series, will be delayed until 2 April 2021 in order to be seen by a worldwide theatrical audience. pic.twitter.com/NqHlU24Ho3

If April 2 sounds familiar, it’s because it’s the date that F9 moved to. With James Bond now taking aim at them, the ninth film in the series is moving to May 28, 2021, or Memorial Day weekend.
2020 is beginning to look like a wasteland with a few films holding to their dates, but it’s seeming more and more likely that everything will move in the not too distant future. With these two latest changes now on the books, expect several more in the coming days.
