Daniel Craig Explains No Time to Die Delay: "We Just Want People to Go and See This Movie in the Right Way"
Daniel Craig knows that you're probably very gutted that No Time To Die has been delayed until next April, and he gets it. He joined Jimmy Fallon last night to commiserate with fans and explain that, you know, this isn't a great time for films to come out.
"This thing is just bigger than all of us," Craig told Fallon over Zoom on the host's late night show. "We just want people to go and see this movie in the right way, in a safe way.
"Cinemas all around the world are closed at the moment. We want to release the movie at the same time all around the world and this isn’t the right time.
"So fingers crossed, 2 April  is going to be our day."
Bond fans had been hoping to see No Time To Die on 22 November, but there are still a fair few things to tide you over until No Time To Die does turn up.
You can subscribe to the official James Bond podcast, for one thing – it's been put on ice for the time being, but the first episode is a really interesting dive into the world into which Ian Fleming's books first introduced Bond – and there's our ongoing investigation into who's likely to follow Craig as 007 when he eventually hangs up his Walther PPK.
