    No Time to Die is not delaying unless they are legally required to (shutdowns), which will not happen.

    I don't know how clearer they can be with this point!

    In some places the risk is NOT down. My home state unfortunately is carrying a highly disproportionate share of cases and deaths. ICUs are filled. Not so long ago there would have been much less risk going into a theater. It's peaking here again, and then some. Sucks. Waiting it out. Thing is -- will we be past this peak by the time NTTD gets released ? Hope so.

    We were talking about the risk in a movie theatre compared to other locations like a restaurant, school, public transport etc.

    And the risk of getting the virus in a movie theatre is way lower in a movie theatre than elsewhere.

    Who are the cases and deaths in your home state?
    90% of them not vaccinated?

    Then a vaccinated person would not have a high risk to get severe ill.

    So, yes. Of course the risk is not down (and will never be) if you're not vaccinated. But for vaccinated people the risk is down as down as it can get.

    Agreed.There is always going to be a risk no matter what you do.To stay at home because of risk is no way to live.You take a risk every time you get behind the wheel of a car,does that mean you give up driving? You take a risk every time you board a plane,does that mean you give up flying?

    By all means take precautions,but get out there and live your life.

    This comment is not designed to scare, but everyone should judge whether it's safe based on their situation, and what is going on in their area.

    In Italy for example 94% of people in ICU has NOT been vaccinated.
    The only thing I really can’t stand is the notion that theaters are riskier places than trains, bar, restaurants etc etc. Theaters are not riskier. They’re just more expendable.

    And no where near as popular. People can live without movie theaters, but god forbid they can’t have their live concerts, restaurants, bars, etc. Theaters are the place where you can’t even talk and socialize like in other venues, so it’s “less cool”.

    Yeah, this is something that's really frustrating me. There is no world where a movie theater — where at most a couple hundred people are silent — is significantly more dangerous than an NBA arena with 20,000 people screaming for the same length of time.

    There's still a virus out there, where's the MI6 HQ open letter begging them to delay ...

    It's being drafted as we speak.

    Maverick moving back to next to year has to be a terrible hammer blow to exhibitors. Without top product there's just no encouragment to go to a cinema. I think movie houses were particularly reliaing on Bond and Top Gun getting people back in, now one of them has departed. My fear is some companies won't survive until next May

    It is. It's worth remembering that anything we put out there, such as a letter asking for the postponement of the film carries no actual weight with Eon. It's an opinion and nothing more. Eon make their decisions based on many factors, and an open letter from MI6 HQ is not one of them.

    Part of me thinks they are sacrificing high box office numbers for award nods… given the paucity of high quality films in 2021, could they be shooting for the stars with a Best Picture nom? If not, I could certainly see Best Cinematography, Soundtrack, etc.

    Tragedies often win Best Picture. Will Bond kick off ? When Danny Boyle still was on the job, reportedly he and his writer partner wanted to kill Bond and the producers disagreed. Of course, they could have disagreed on various aspects but been ok with this one, were the story even accurate. They could have disagreed then but gotten used to the idea thereafter. Hmmm....will see !

    I've been halfway joking for a while NTTD could get a BP nod, it wouldn't win but I think they'd be more than happy to be able to advertise "BEST PICTURE NOMINEE NO TIME TO DIE".

    If it's as good as the buzz is...

    I’ll say it again they should have ramped forward the date a good few weeks

    You don't say .... see still I'm blocked on the Twitter account for having an opinion on said letter. MI6 HQ likes to be opinionated but very much does not like it when people disagree with them. Hence the childish behaviour in blocking people on Twitter, as for Ben .... jeez ...

    To be honest, Twitter is the worst.
  • To be honest, Twitter is the worst.

    Yes especially when you get sensationalist tweets from MI6HQ - 'OMG NTTD has to make a billion dollars to break even' - 'We've seen the script and what a wtf moment - Bond goes to Vesper's grave with Madeleine.'

    Not a chance in hell NTTD gets an picture nod.At the end of the day,Bond movies are seen as just another action franchise and not best picture material.

    Anyway,who cares? The oscars lost their relevance a long,long time ago.It’s just a big circle jerk for millionaires handing out gold statues to each other.

    If BLACK PANTHER can get nominated, so can Bond.

    Lotta buzz with Skyfall, totally possible if unlikely.

    Black Panther had an almost entirely black cast and giving that film a nomination was a massive virtue signal by the academy to say to the world “ Hey! We love black people! No racism here! Honest! Oh we’re sorry we let Harvey Weinstein get away with everything he did over the years and looked the other way by the way! “

    The only way i see NTTD getting a best picture nom is if the new female black 007 puts Bond in his place during the entire movie and makes him apologise for being such a womaniser over the years.Bonus points if Moneypenney lodges a complaint with HR regarding tweets Bond made seven or so years ago and says directly to the screen “ BELIEVE WOMEN! “

    Yep. If Nomi makes Bond cry, I’d say the film has the faintest chance of being nominated. Otherwise, absolutely no chance.

    Black Panther was extremely culturally relevant and the lead died. Similarly with Heath Ledger, whom I doubt would have won if he were alive.

    "Black Panther" came out in 2018 and Chadwick Boseman was alive back then, when the movie was nominated for "Best Picture".

    Ah, fair enough then, got my timeline mixed up.

    Shang Chi seems to be doing extremely well in the box office all things considered. People are still willing to go to the movies in large numbers provided there is something worth seeing

    I think 'NTTD' should be repeatedly delayed by a week, just to mess with cinema goers.

    Another delay would be a massive mistake.

    Well see.It could suffer a massive drop the second weekend once all the Marvel nerds see it just like Black Widow.

    The big difference this time is that it's not on Disney+ until October 17.

    How it will perform will give more perspective to NTTD's release rather than BLACK WIDOW.
