The coronavirus has delayed several companies within several industries, and now Hollywood and the latest 007 film No Time to Die has officially been delayed. According to a tweet from the MGM Twitter handle “MGM, Universal and Bond producers, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, announced today that after careful consideration and thorough evaluation of the global theatrical marketplace, the release of No Time to Die will be postponed until November 2020.”
Although the coronavirus wasn’t mentioned specifically, the line “evaluation of the global theatrical marketplace” alludes to the current scare of the disease that has the world on its toes. The global box office has been majorly affected since the coronavirus outbreak began earlier this year. China, where the virus originated, is the second biggest box office market in the world, and the closure of several theaters throughout the country has affected the industry as a whole.
