    If it happens, and by November the market won't be suitable for a theatrical release, that could lead to NTTD being released online.

    100% agree. I simply can't see how they could release NTTD in theaters in November. Even if the virus is stopped by November, this will be a global depression, the biggest in 100 years. Online release in November? Maybe. Theatrical release this year? Forget it.

    Movies were released during The Great Depression. Bond films should be on the big screen. I’ll wait. I’ll be there whenever it premiers.

    The difference is that the economic depression wasn t contagious in that sense, even though it did kill the sick and elderly too.

    They say it could be worse then the great depression even I've seen things are only going to get crazier.

    Worse for the populace perhaps, but the finance lords will grow even stronger.

    I am sure you would be more benign and compassionate than the ones we have now.
  • In the news they're now speculating that the restrictive measures we've seen governments taken to last at least 12 months - if that's the case I can't see NTTD being released in cinemas in November - who knew that Daniel Craig's tenure would go on even longer!?

    I'm no scientist or doctor...but it's a little too early to tell.

    Billy Magnussen on NTTD:

    https://mlmanhattan.com/billy-magnussen-hero-journey

    The Bond brand is legendary, and No Time to Die will forever place Magnussen among a special class of actors who’ve been part of the series. “It’s a pinch-myself moment, and to be part of this is an honor,” Magnussen says of his role as CIA agent Logan Ash. Naturally, he’s a fan of the series and understands its decadeslong appeal. “Everyone has that hero’s journey in them,” he says.

    He’s particularly excited about this iteration of Bond, marking No. 25, because its director, Cary Joji Fukunaga, is the first American to direct a movie in the series. Magnussen previously worked with Fukunaga on Maniac, a limited series on Netflix also starring Emma Stone and Jonah Hill. “In this industry, there are lots of people who are just colleagues, but I’m happy to call Cary a friend. I love him,” says Magnussen. “He’s one of the hardest-working guys in this business, always pushing to do something better. He operates on a different level and brings so much excitement and a different perspective to Bond. And the fact that he got Hans Zimmer and Billie Eilish to do the music—are you kidding me?”

    I understand people wanting to see the film, but why would we hope for it to appear in a way that would seriously put it in doubt of being a financial success? Utterly baffling.

    Completely agree Sir. The loss by releasing on streaming services would be immeasurable. Despite fans wanting to see NTTD, a further delay would be the most plausible situation if things don't change.

    If a $30-40 charge per stream is the only way they could foresee a returning similar to what they were expecting from a theatrical release, I'm not sure they'd go for it. That's a hefty sum.

    People routinely pay $30-40 VOD for a boxing match. A new Bond release has remained an event--that's the upside to getting a new film every five years--so I can see them releasing it for $40 or $50...

    ...especially since a vaccine is 18 months out. Who is going to sit comfortably in a theater in November with no vaccine available?

    Who says it won't be available?

    One example:

    Get ready for 12-18 months of waiting.

    Right, because the Telegraph says so.

    And if it were released in VOD, it would be in degraded quality. As the networks in Europe are much in use for teleworking or streaming from home, companies such as Netflix and YouTube have agreed to restrict their bandwidth in order to prevent saturation. For instance, you can’t presently watch a show in HD on Netflix. Expect to get the same in the US by the next two or three weeks.

    As a fan and a lay man these are my thoughts on it;
    - Would another a delay be preferable to EON and all concerned than a streaming release? YES

    - Would another delay to maybe spring '21 be preferred by Me? SADLY, YES

    - Would an even further delay be ok with me? NO BECAUSE IF THE WORLD IS STILL IN THIS POSITION IN ONE YEAR'S TIME WE WILL NEED SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO!

    - Would a worldwide cinematic release be better for the studio etc and the world's economies? YES DEFINITELY AND NEVER MORE NEEDED.

    - Is it inconceivable that NTTD will premiere on streaming? NOT ANY MORE, NOTHING WOULD SUPRISE ME NOW ABOUT ANY WALK OF LIFE.

    - Would a streaming release(s) massively hurt the studios? POSSIBLY, LOOK HOW FRAGILE THE AIRLINE INDUSTRY SEEM TO BE.

    - Would a streaming release ruin Bond's future as a tenable property? ABSOLUTELY NOT, IF NTTD MAKES A LOSS EVERYONE WILL KNOW IT WAS BECAUSE OF THE UNPRECEDENTED REASONS NOT THE QUALITY / VIABILITY OF BOND.

    What ever happens "James Bond will Return" ... please be quick.

    As the worldwide situation to the corona virus changes daily, who knows what we'll be looking at come November.
    It's quite likely that we'll be in much the same situation we have now. Or maybe not.
    As far as film studios go, and EON we can only wait. In the event that the virus is with us for the long haul, then perhaps EON will choose to go with a streaming release of NTTD.
    I hope they don't. I have patience.
    We have 24 Bond films too keep us occupied till NTTD eventually comes out.
    Surely the health and safety of the world is more important than any film. Even a Bond film.

    Yes absolutely. I must say like every other Bond fan I was gutted when it was delayed.
    Now just a couple of weeks on my Bond film's release seems insignificant now. I never thought I'd say that. The world is under massive pressure, my country is hurting right now in every way imaginable. Businesses and individuals, families and friends are in trouble.
    I feel almost selfish talking about myself in comparison to the bigger picture. BUT my job, my livelihood, my anxiety are under threat and like many other I'm trying to navigate through something we've never experienced before while trying to support other people.
    James Bond has to return because when he does it might just mean we are recovering from all this.

    Apologies. I know that wasn't about the production I just wanted to vent.

    I hear you @cwl007
    Part of me would like to see it released in April on a streaming service. And I'd pay any money too see it. Then the other part of me can wait. Till we're over this terrible virus that has closed the world.
    I can understand we need something good in our lives right now. Something to give us a lift. And NTTD would surely do that.

    The thing is, even when all of this is over, or practically over, it'll be a while until folk regain trust and enough confidence to go out to very crowded places, like movie theatres. Fear will last a bit after the virus is contained, unless a vaccine is well distributed by then, and it won't be, not in November anyway.

    So I don't know if a theatrical release will give us the same number as in past circumstances. I hope it will. But I just don't know.

    If this gets very prolonged in time, say for a year and a half, EON will be doing us and everyone a humanitarian service by releasing it online, so we can have some hope and something to look forwards to. Heck, if it's as good as they say it is, I'll watch it later in the cinema as well.

    As things are, I agree with @cwl007's post above.

    I think it’s a nice comfort to know there’s a Bond film to look forward to at (hopefully) the end of this.

    That's true.

    But I'd also like to consider those Bond fans that are infected or are suspicious of it and are confined to their homes and fears, and have no notion if they'll live to see that day. There is a large demographic of Bond fans in their 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, and even 80s, you know? And some are under vigilance and self quarantine. I know that seeing a film of their beloved secret agent is not on their minds right now, not as much as, say, surviving; but it could very well be a balm for them to see it streamed.

    Just considering something that hasn't been considered.

    I believe i said it before as well. It would be wise to release in theatre and on streaming service a month later, for people who wants either of those options. They need to play it safe and generate a lot of attention for people to visit cinema in November.

    Check other sources, then. They're all saying the same: 12-18 months for a vaccine.

    Everyone, stay safe and stay home!

    It’s a long wait til November, thus a long wait til we know what the situation is with the virus and whether EON will postpone. We just have to be patient and not worry too much about what may happen in November. There’s plenty of time to focus on other things.

    It may be a year or more for a vaccine but this isolation won’t last that long. Self isolation and quarantine is happening right now to reduce the strain on worldwide health systems. Most people will get COVID-19, with varying degrees of severity. The hope is that we can spread infection over several months rather than see numbers spike at one time and overwhelm resources. At this time, November 12th/25th is as good a date as any so long as it’s not Spring or Summer of 2020.

    In Germany there are still two Drive In Cinemas open, showing two movies every day.
    But that cannot be the future of movie theatres.

    Definitely not, and they will have to shut down. Every cinema aroumnd here are closed, also pubs and restaurants. Supermarkets, food stores, pharmacies and drug stores are still open, everything is closed. I had to go to the pharmacy, and the whole town is almost empty, like a ghost town. But if that helps to contain the virus and its spread and to flatten the curve, it's fine for me. And I would be ready to wait even post November for NTTD.
