Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, No Time to Die is one of the most anticipated movies which was delayed due to the pandemic but will be coming to theaters on 30 September 2021 in the United Kingdom and 8 October 2021 in the US.
No Time to Die will have the World’s Biggest Premiere
The blockbuster was supposed to be released in April 2020, but it was repeatedly postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Now that its back on track with a release date, the film producers are planning on going all out and having the biggest premiere since the pandemic for the film.
The film’s producers and MGM have set aside £10 million for the UK event, according to The Mirror. The premiere is expected to take place in a big stadium in London, such as the Wembley Arena.
“They think they can pull off the biggest in-person premiere of the post-pandemic period, and have already set aside a whopping £10 million for an event in England that will mark the return of these kinds of lavish movie releases that everyone’s been missing for the last year,” a source told the publication.
“They’re looking at the biggest venues in London, starting with Wembley and working their way down,” says the source. “They’ve also inquired about a US premiere at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.”
“One of the many reasons MGM and the Bond team have rolled with all the delays is that they’ve never liked the idea of launching this movie without a red carpet event.”
After all that we have been through during the pandemic, we all deserve to see a big, flashy event like this premiere, if it happened that is. Right fans?
