Next James Bond Movie's Release Date Delayed

The next 007 film is now coming on Valentine's Day 2020.


The untitled 25th James Bond movie has been delayed. Previously scheduled to arrive in theatres in late 2019, the movie is now pegged to arrive on February 14, 2020. That's Valentine's Day.

The movie is being directed by True Detective and Beasts of No Nation director Cary Fukunaga, who is the first American and second non-white person to direct a Bond film. No reason was provided for the delay, but it likely has to do with director Danny Boyle dropping out. Presumably extra time was needed for Fukunaga to get up to speed and for a new script to be assembled and approved.
