'No Time to Die' sets October 8 release
Although the world finally has a vaccine against COVID-19, things aren’t quite ready to return to normal and, as such, another round of big screen delays has been announced. EON Productions, Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios and United Artists have again pushed the new James Bond adventure, No Time to Die. The Cary Joji Fukunaga film will now debut on October 8.
Sony Pictures, meanwhile, has shifted several of their upcoming releases. Cinderella, starring Camila Cabello, was to open next month, but will now arrive in theaters on July 16.
Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway, which had been set for and April 2 release, will now debut on June 11, 2021. That, in turn, bumps Ghostbusters: Afterlife from June 11 to November 11, 2021.
The Marvel adaptation Morbius, planned for this October, will now bow theatrically on January 21, 2022. Also moving to 2022 is the video game adaptation Uncharted, now set for February 11.
Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, No Time to Die finds Bond having left active service and enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
The No Time to Die cast also includes Ben Whishaw, Ana de Armas, Lashana Lynch, Rami Malek, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Rory Kinnear, Jeffrey Wright, Dali Benssalah, David Dencik and Billy Magnussen.
No Time to Die is written by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade, Scott Z. Burns with Cary Joji Fukunaga and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
One of Marvel’s most conflicted characters comes to the big screen as Academy Award winner Jared Leto transforms into the enigmatic antihero, Michael Morbius. Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. What at first appears to be a radical success soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease.
The cast of Morbius also includes Matt Smith (Doctor Who, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies), Adria Arjona (Good Omens, 6 Underground), Jared Harris (Mad Men, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows), Al Madrigal (Night School, The Way Back) and Tyrese Gibson (The Fate of the Furious, Black and Blue).
Directed by Daniel Espinosa (Safe House, Life) from a screenplay by Matt Sazama & Burk Sharpless and Art Marcum & Matt Holloway, Morbius is produced by Matt Tolmach, Avi Arad and Lucas Foster with Louise Rosner executive producing.
From director Jason Reitman and producer Ivan Reitman comes the next chapter in the original Ghostbusters universe. In Ghostbusters: Afterlife, when a single mom and her two kids arrive in a small town, they begin to discover their connection to the original ghostbusters and the secret legacy their grandfather left behind.
