    That date is not gonna hold. Not falling for it this time. Way too much competition.

    Which films should we be worried about? The only ones I see are Dune and Halloween, and I think Dune is slightly handicapped by its simultaneous debut on HBOMax.

    Dune is very likely to be a traditional release again, FYI..competing for IMAX will be a factor

    Are they using Godzilla vs Kong as a sacrificial lamb with regards to HBO Max, then?

    Dune in IMAX, Halloween which has suddenly become popular again, M:I if it holds, and flicks like F9 and Black Widow depending when they move. All will eat away at its box office potential after opening weekend. And for a flick thats spent so much already, not exactly a positive outcome.

    Interestingly, October 5th is (Formerly Global) James Bond Day. So (provided it’s possible by then), I’m willing to bet that we’ll get the Royal Premiere with cast, crew and crowned heads strutting on the red carpet on that very day.

    As I said above, I was ready for an announcement, glad we have a date now.

    I'm leaning towards no premiere events this year, unless everyone is wearing masks.

    M:I is five weeks away, if it holds - that was why people were so worried about a potential shift to November. Halloween has become popular again, for sure. But not popular enough that I would worry about it eating into Bond's gross.

    Yes, depending on when they move. Which they likely will with other films in mind. Neither will want to be too close to each other and any other film, including Bond.

    I just really bloody hope it won't be necessary to wear a mask while watching the film...

  • Mark my words, unless things improve very quickly over the next few months, it'll move again.

    Probably not as big a move as before though. Possibly to December, or maybe February.

    I'm not sure why people are so concerned about these two movies potentially going head to head anyway.

    Even if we leave out the fact that NTTD is a finished movie and MI still has months of filming left and the fact that the schedule is still very unstable, Bond is still a bigger franchise than MI:7.

    If for some reason NTTD was moved to a competing release date, MI:7 would be more likely vacate it than Bond.

    This makes a lot of sense. Why release it in April when they can delay it half a year and release it when life is back to normal? This feels like the final delay.

    Hang that bitch Barbara Broccoli by her thumbs. October? Release it to Hulu NOW, EON. We tire of waiting.

    ☹️

    I was OK with the move from April 2020 to November 2020. And I was OK with the move from November 2020 to April 2021. But this one is tough. I have to admit.

    And another release date down the chute. For those keeping score: October 25th, 2019 February 14th, 2020 April 3rd, 2020 November 12th, 2020 April 2nd, 2021..and now October 8th, 2021.

    I'm more than happy with an October release date, especially if it had been in 2019 and B26 were coming out this year instead.
    Still, hopefully NTTD is superb Bond outing well worth the wait and it inspires Eon to get rolling with the next film.

    Yes, it will be. I was hoping to see it this summer. October seems...damn...just an eternity away, now.

    this puts us closer to breaking the LTK- GE record gap. If that was a record we were hoping to break...

    Well it is what it is. At least we have confirmation of something we already pretty much knew.
    No point in complaining about it, it won’t change a thing.

    There was absolutely no part of me that thought I would be watching this film in April, so this news is not that shocking to me. It was more like waiting for them to officially announce it, rather than hoping they wouldn't move it.

    Just realised: Bond skipped Trump’s entire tenure.

    And yet he still was able to drag Sean Connery into the mess.

    Thank God that tweet didn't mention "we are happy to delay it again" :D
    I knew it wasn't going to release in April, let's see how next few months turns out.

    Given the size of the vaccination task worldwide, I am surprised they selected an October 2021 release. While I hope things will be much better by then, I think October will be too soon, and look, in that regard, to 2022. Of course, if things will not have changed enough by August or September of this year, they can reschedule again.

    October for now. If this pandemic continues the way it is going, expect that date to be pushed back again. I said all along it would be April 2022, and the current signs don't prove me wrong. EON are just giving themselves breathing space again.

    Forget the 60th, we're in the Craig era.
    I think NTTD should be delayed until November 2026 in time for CR's 20th anniversary.

    Then get B26 ready for 2032 in time for the series' 70th.

    Just kidding. Carry on.............

    Of course it does. And then October will soon pass and we will have the next release date - April 2022, which I am still slightly optimistic about, for now at least.

    As for life returning to normal, I hate to break it to you but the new norm will be face masks and distancing for a couple of years at least. Life may never fully return back to the normal we once remembered it pre 2020. We are now living through a moment in history which will be looked back on for many years to come. How life was before 2020, and what life was like after 2020.

    I work in the broadcast industry, which used to have huge global trade shows every year in Las Vegas and Amsterdam, and already now the talk is that these shows may never return. Businesses are finding a new way to continue, people working from home, TV stations now doing remote production. If they make a profit under these circumstances, then there is no more need to rent large offices and attend any large trade shows anymore.

    The city high street will probably be the most noticeable change once this pandemic is finally through. It was already in rapid decline before 2020, and Covid has just accelerated it.

    As for how many bars, restaurants and social gathering events will survive this, including large cinema chains, I dread to think. No one really knows what the new norm is going to look like in a couple of years time when this virus has hopefully finally passed through us.

    M:I is five weeks away, if it holds - that was why people were so worried about a potential shift to November. Halloween has become popular again, for sure. But not popular enough that I would worry about it eating into Bond's gross.

    I'm not sure why people are so concerned about these two movies potentially going head to head anyway.

    Even if we leave out the fact that NTTD is a finished movie and MI still has months of filming left and the fact that the schedule is still very unstable, Bond is still a bigger franchise than MI:7.

    If for some reason NTTD was moved to a competing release date, MI:7 would be more likely vacate it than Bond.

    I guess these films probably need more space than usual as they need to make sure they can recoup as much as possible, plus people will perhaps not be wanting to do lots of trips to the cinema and just pick one film to see.

    This entirely is my fear. Everything that comes afterward to eat into its potential box office drastically. I do not see a feasible way it hits what it needs globally if other movies move into the November / December slots. It will have a huge drop off.
