This was not unexpected as coronavirus cases continue to skyrocket.
The movie carrying a massive price tag around $200 million relies profit by substantial global ticket sales, a task nearly impossible at the time when most movie theaters are closed, with the few remaining open had been operating at a reduced capacity.
Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, “No Time to Die,” is the 25th entry in the Bond franchise and the final go-around for star Daniel Craig.
The cast also includes Rami Malek as Bond’s adversary Safin, Lashana Lynch as a new ‘007 agent and Léa Seydoux as Bond’s love interest. Ana de Armas, Ben Whishaw and Christoph Waltz also star.
