James Bond Moves… And Grooves.

He may be the man with the golden gun, but his release dates seem to have time to die. In the current normal of the cinematic world, the 25th installment of the James Bond franchise has been moved to the hopefully non-cursed calendar year of 2021.

“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 in order to be seen by a worldwide theatrical audience,” the filmmakers said in a statement. “We understand the delay will be disappointing to our fans but we now look forward to sharing ‘No Time To Die’ next year.”

As the year 2020 continues to be the year that fun forgot, this move is not a shock to the movie watching world and is understandable, as the movie release path has become a minefield and studios know they need to make the right decision for their important releases. The path for Bond deserves to end on the big screen, as this installment of the iconic franchise will mark the last mission for Daniel Craig and give us a new entry into the grand library of James Bond theme songs.

“It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way. To be able to score the theme song to a film that is part of such a legendary series is a huge honor,” Billie Eilish said in a recent press release.

This song “No Time To Die” was written by Billie Eilish and makes her the youngest artist to produce a song for this franchise. Eilish enters the landscape of Bond movie theme history with such greats as Paul McCartney, A-Ha, and Adele.

James Bond is a movie series that will not die. The legacy is built upon iconic characters, writing, and music, but will this movie have the same impact if the movie watching public has to wait longer or even have to settle with a smaller screen, but for now “No Time To Die” is set to be release in the spring of 2021.

Set to be written and directed by two time academy nominated Jason Reitman, son of original director Ivan Reitman.

The movie is scheduled to be filmed this summer, however the press release did not mention any casting news so it is not determined at this point if any of the main cast will be returning.
Not wanting to let the flame die down, Sony released a 52 second teaser trailer on the morning of January 16th.

The trailer has fans watering at the mouth for more, especially casting news. While the original cast returned for the 2016 reboot, it has still not been determined whether we will see any of the OG’s in this highly anticipated sequel. One cast member has made his presence known on social media, Dan Aykroyd.
Jason Reitman dropped the following tweet with the trailer:

Dan Aykroyd tweeted back to Jason:

  So we know Dan is ready to jump in, but the major hold out with the cast has always been the elusive Bill Murray. There have been attempts in the past to get a GB3 off the ground, but Bill has always denied coming back which never let sequels get off the ground. But with a Reitman at the helm, and the fans rallying around this news it seems the right time for Bill to make his comeback to ethereal plane.
