The movie, which was slated to open April 2, will now hit theaters Oct. 8 because of the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.
The official 007 Twitter account said late Thursday that the 25th installment in the franchise will now open on Oct. 8.
“No Time To Die” was originally slated to open in April 2020 but was pushed back to November of that year as the virus swept around the world. It was then delayed again to April 2, 2021.
The move comes as coronavirus cases continue to spike, particularly in the U.S.
MGM will handle distribution in North America and Universal will roll out the film internationally. Reps for the companies did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
Bond flick ‘No Time to Die’ has once again been pushed back. The movie will now hit theaters on Oct. 8.
Per Variety, “No Time to Die” cost around $200 million and will need to be an international success to make money on the flick, especially considering an advertising campaign was nearly completed in the past.
Making such a sum is very unlikely without American movie theaters operating at a higher volume than they are now, as many theaters remain closed with others have limited capacities.
The film is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga from a screenplay he co-wrote with — among others — “Fleabag” creator and “Solo: A Star Wars Story” actress Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

The picture was also the first major tentpole film to push back its release date amid the pandemic and considered selling to streamers for a high price tag.
The most recent delay was the first in a line of release date shifts that occurred Thursday, including Sony’s “Cinderella,” which was set to be the year’s first big release Feb. 5. The musical will now hit theaters July 16.
“Ghostbusters: Afterlife” (now set for release Nov. 11), “Uncharted” (Feb. 11, 2022) and “Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway” (June 11) were also pushed back.
