(Video) James Bond film ‘No Time To Die’ for premiere September 28 in London

The world premiere of the James Bond film No Time To Die will take place on September 28 at the Royal Albert Hall in London, it has been confirmed.

Daniel Craig’s final outing as 007 has been repeatedly delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

A message on the film’s official Twitter account said the actor, 53, will be joined by producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli and director Cary Joji Fukunaga on the red carpet.

The premiere – which will be held on a Tuesday – will come two days before the film is released in cinemas on Thursday September 30.

A number of Bond premieres have taken place at the famous London venue, including 2015’s Spectre where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Duke of Sussex were in attendance.

No Time To Die was the first major film to fall victim to the pandemic when its April 2020 release was pushed to November as the virus swept the globe.

It was subsequently delayed a number of times while cinemas around the world remained shuttered.

No Time To Die also stars Lea Seydoux, Rami Malek, Lashana Lynch and Ana De Armas and is directed by Fukunaga, with a script co-written by Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

No Time To Die finds Bond having left active service and enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica when his old friend Felix Leiter, played by Jeffrey Wright, from the CIA turns up asking for help.

Danny Boyle was originally hired to direct but stepped away from the project over ‘creative differences’.

It comes after it was recently reported that the hotly-anticipated film is set to have the world’s biggest premiere when it is released.

According to reports from The Mirror last month, MGM and the film’s producers are said to have set aside £10 million for the grand event in the UK.

It was claimed that those behind-the-scenes were keen to have the premiere take place in a large London stadium like Wembley Arena.

A source speaking to the publication claimed: ‘They think they can pull off the biggest in-person premiere of the post-pandemic era, and have already put aside a whopping £10million for an event in England that will signal the return of these kinds of flashy movie launches that everybody’s been missing for the last year.

‘They are looking at the biggest venues in London, starting with Wembley and going down from there, and have enquired about the Staples Center in Los Angeles for a US premiere.

‘MGM and the Bond team have never liked the idea of launching this movie without a red carpet event, which is one of the many reasons they’ve rolled with all the delays.’

Producer Barbara Broccoli has already teased what fans can expect and said that the movie will deliver a satisfying ending for Daniel’s Bond. 

Speaking on the official James Bond podcast, she said: ‘It’s a culmination of everything that his portrayal of the character has been through and it ties up all the storylines. It’s a pretty epic film, I have to say.’

After pushing the film’s release back to April 2021 in October, MGM quashed rumours about whether it was thinking of offering the film to streaming services for a $600 million one-year licensing deal.

‘We do not comment on rumours. The film is not for sale. The film’s release has been postponed until April 2021 in order to preserve the theatrical experience for moviegoers,’ an MGM spokesperson told Variety.

Bloomberg had reported that Netflix, Amazon and Apple had all been approached about the possibility of the movie being offered up for Premium VOD.

However, according to Deadline.com, none of the streaming services were willing to put up more than half the amount the studio was seeking.

Lead actor Craig did defend James Bond producers’ decision to delay the premiere of the new film in October last year.
