Daniel Craig’s last James Bond movie will be released in theaters this year. No Time To Die is the British star’s fifth and final 007 film, having played the fictional spy on screen for over 15 years. Although the film should have been released in early 2020, it was delayed several times due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
With a supposedly final release date set for September 30, 2021, Craig’s last premiere as the star of the Bond franchise was reportedly going to cost a staggering sum.
According to The Mirror, plans for the upcoming No Time To Die premiere have been leaked. The event is said to have been priced in the millions.
The source of the publication claimed, “MGM and the Bond producers agree.
“They think they can make the biggest personal premiere of the post-pandemic era, and have already set aside a whopping £ 10 million for an event in England that will mark the return of these kind of flashy movie launches that everyone has missed before. last year. ”
The source continued: “They look at the biggest venues in London, starting with Wembley and from there, and have inquired about the Staples Center in Los Angeles for a US premiere.
“MGM and the Bond team have never enjoyed the idea of launching this movie without a red carpet event, which is one of the many reasons they have been rolled away by all the delays.”
The source then referred to the debut of the new femme fatale, Paloma, played by Blade Runner 2049 star Ana De Armas.
They said, “You don’t cast Ana de Armas and then don’t give her the chance to walk the biggest red carpet in the world.”
The source added, “The money has been set aside to do the biggest Bond eruption ever, and they’re full steam ahead to make it work, pandemic and all!”
This wouldn’t be the first time a Bond movie had a massive premiere.
In 2015, Bond bosses at production company MGM hosted a significant event at the British Museum for the release of the fourth Craig Bond film Specter.
The Mexican-themed gathering included copious amounts of tequila and fire dancers.
If this event continues, Craig will undoubtedly get a massive shout-out from the Bond bosses at MGM to commemorate his latest foray into the spy.
The 53-year-old actor changed the scope and style of the cinematic hero during his time in the tuxedo. It was clear that the star wanted to change Bond’s look and feel during his first foray onto the screen in Casino Royale.
During the early moments of the 2006 film, Craig’s character was shown killing someone in cold blood long before he became a double-0 cop.
However, all eyes are on how the role will change again.
While Tom Hardy and James Norton were front runners, they recently lagged 3/1 and 3/1, respectively.
Netflix and Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page is now the favorite to become Bond, with Evens claiming the role.
James Bond’s No Time To Die will be released on September 30, 2021.
