The global release of the new James Bond film “No Time to Die” will be postponed from April until November, the producers said on Wednesday, amid an outbreak of coronavirus.

“The film will be released in the UK on November 12, 2020 with worldwide release dates to follow, including the US launch on November 25, 2020,” a posting on the official James Bond Twitter account said.

It made no specific reference to the virus.

Worldwide, coronavirus has infected more than 90,000 people and caused over 3,100 deaths.
