It's official:

October 8, 2021:

That still feels optimistic to me. We shall see.


Doesn't make sense to me. Wouldn't it be directly complete with Dune? I guess they are thinking with streaming, Dune's box office potential has been dampened by week 2?

Yep, I can't see theaters in all major markets in the US, Europe and Asia being open at 100% capacity in October. That feels unrealistic. Early 2022 sounds more plausible.

Premiere delayed again. Colour me surprised.

But it made me think of a humorous joke. Now it's called No Time To Die. But I think they should change the title. You know what they should call it?

No Time To Release.

- I have a 10 that says June 2022.
- I have a 20 that says "Pass the pepper".
- What?
- Talking money.
- Talking monkey?
- A talking monkey. Yeah, yeah... Came here from the future. Ugly sucker. Only says "ficus".

Seriously though. (backstory) I'm able to listen to music while working. After I'm done with my latest playlist I'm going to put in all (Broccoli/Saltzman) scores in chronological order. Will I get tired of The James Bond Theme? Probably, but I'm the sort of person that, as the saying goes, I don't often but when I do I deliberately the whole thing and too much of it.

And about the Z. I stopped liking him circa 2010, but I remain open-minded. My expectations are low, so I'll gladly be positively surprised. From what I've read WW84 is pretty good.

Ironically Zimmer would have had plenty of time to write this score three times over, and Mazzaro need never have gotten involved.

I wished they would release the score in April anyway - that would give me the nostalgic kick of those days when I got to know the Bond films after buying the scores, familiarizing myself with them before watching them.

It will be 2022.

I think this will be the last delay. If it misses this date, I can see EON/MGM looking at streaming options. They can only carry those monthly $1M interest payments for so long, and MGM needs the cash.

2022 marks the franchise's 60th anniversary. Too good an opportunity to miss. We'd like 4K UHD editions of the other 24 films too, please (the Craig's are already out)

I wonder if Netflix were more interested in purchasing MGM itself, rather than this piddly little Bond film, which would probably have been included anyway?

Here you have interesting analysis about the future of NTTD, which for me is spot on:

"No Time To Die delays leave Daniel Craig’s Bond feeling like a lame duck 007"

https://www.radiotimes.com/movies/2021-01-22/no-time-to-die-delays-daniel-craig-comment/

BTW, Decca has changed release date of CD/LP to October, obviously:

What a shoddy article, written by someone who obviously has no idea of how the film industry actually works (or can’t at this moment in time!). Here’s a much more logical and all together better written summary...

I agree with some of what Bradshaw says, I usually like his reviews, but the article is mostly about what the audience has lost out on, it doesn't display a great deal of understanding of the business side of the film industry. The first article also linked to this previous article he wrote in October 2020, where he was angry that the film was being delayed to Spring 2021. That article displays an absolutely woeful lack of basic understanding of the industry:

https://www.theguardian.com/film/2020/oct/05/comment-film-industry-cineworld-closure-james-bond-no-time-to-die

Again, I really like his reviews, but this October article reads like it was written by a youthful fan. He writes "the decision to delay the release of No Time to Die demonstrates an enraging loss of courage" and "But it isn’t simply that this line of thinking discounts the possibility that No Time to Die could have built on the initial steps taken by Tenet; it is the assumption that everything will pretty much be the same next year."

"Build on the initial steps taken by Tenet"? Tenet was a financial catastrophe that nobody wants to replicate. Its release was forced by its director, apparently, and it came out in the summer, when COVID numbers were lower, and yet it still lost tens of millions of dollars, if not 100 million or more.

Bradshaw argues that MGM was cowardly not to then move forward releasing a film in LATE NOVEMBER? Even in October that line of thinking was clearly idiotic, every medical expert was saying for months there would be a winter surge, which we're now living through.

He also reserves his greatest ire for EON, which is unfair and displays an equal lack of knowledge, saying "It is enraging that Eon (the Bond producers) have lost their nerve so spectacularly, pulling the movie on which the industry had been relying..." and "Eon has reportedly been unnerved by the lacklustre box-office numbers for Tenet, and this long delay is apparently their idea of playing it safe." He never once even MENTIONS MGM in either article, when MGM takes the lead on these films, since they assemble the financing. Look what happened when MGM tried to sell the film to streaming recently, they didn't even TELL EON about this, and EON was reportedly furious.

I love The Guardian for their reviews, but I generally stick to Deadline, Variety, and The Hollywood Reporter for accurate appraisals of the business side of the industry.

And maybe they could add Atmos tracks to the Craig films that should have them!

The UHD 4K scans are already up for streaming, they're clearly just waiting for the new film's release to release the UHD discs.

As a fan of the song, good for her.

That has to be a first.
Because of Grammy eligibility, winning in this category ould come up to a year after the movie release (which it would have had NTTD been released on time).

OTOH that means there's no replacing it now...
