    Assume this will be announced as global. I'm gutted. But I also recognise if things continue on current trends it would be grossly irresponsible to forge ahead.

    Just imagine the marketing department right now. They've been working their butts off the last 3 weeks or so to make this happen and now...poof.

    It's the smart call, though. Unless you're actively trying to lose money, you've simply gotta punt until next year.

    Not unsurprising world is a COVID mess right now - gut feeling it may even slip to Fall 2021 if the human race does not get its arrse in gear and start taking the threat seriously.

    So in April when nothing is better will they just stream the bloody film? Or will we spend the next 2 years the way we have spent the last 2: waiting every six months for a premier that is perpetually delayed! X-( This is why the years spent waiting for Craig and then chasing flashy directors is so costly. When you fail to control the things you should, you get burned even worse by the things you don’t control.

    Gotta wonder what this means for the licensing agreements with Omega, Tommy Bahama, and all of the rest? I'm sure those were signed with '2020' as the effective year.

    Also: I have to wonder if they'll be working diligently on 4K physical releases of the non-Craig films to try and recoup some money.

    Small consolation for the marketing department but they enthused my wallet during this second ramp...


    Small consolation for me; those original APRIL posters *will* come in handy a second time around! :D

    So disappointing but yet so expected. I think they need to can everything now and bring it all back out again when we know for sure Covid is under control and a full cinematic release is a go. But please... EON get the next actor cast and start on the new film for release 2023!!

    ...or at the very least 2024, the 60th Anniversary of what many feel is THE archetypal and greatest Bond film.

    I simply cannot second all if the „right move/ smart decision“-commentaries over on Instagram.

    This is getting ridiculous, we‘ve got the 5th release date/ 4th postponement for this movie now.
    EON is trying to sit things out, casually postponing the thing ever so close to the actual release.

    Member Miles Messervy has said it quite correctly:
    They waste to much time in between the movies, this time it was waiting forever and a day for DC to make his mind up and then the debacle with the directors.

    Truth is: nobody knows where the world will be going in the forseeable future let alone April next year so it’s bloody optimistic of them to postpone it to then.

    Pretty sure the average movie-goer/ casual Bond-fan will loose interest at a certain point.

    They should really face the facts and come to terms with alternate ways of distribution!

    The head of the Norwegian cinema organisation said on the seven o'clock news there's 95% chance NTTD wil premiere in November :))

    This is sensible, but still disapointing.
    I really hope EON spends the time well and use it to cast a new Bond and geet an ace script written.
  • GymkataGymkata Minnesota, USAPosts: 3,441MI6 Agent
    At this point, we could have a double feature of NTTD and Bond 26.

    Billie Eilish must be a bit annoyed now since she launched her NTTD music video just yesterday. Couldn't they have given her a quiet word ....

    And JBR just made their first podcast in months :))
  • Royale-les-EauxRoyale-les-Eaux LondonPosts: 462MI6 Agent
    Hmm...I wonder if they'll carry on with things like the official podcast?

    Adidas announced today. Smirnoff had a launch planned.

    I assume there were official plans for World James Bond day on Monday...

    I would not be surprised for Tommy Bahama to have the NTTD shirts in stores by next weekend. No way in heck they want to carry that inventory into 2021.

    I didn't realise that they could predict the future, I didn't know that they had a crystal ball. IMO this is idiotic. April 2021? Why? Does their crystal ball say the world will be better by then?

    Most experts believe there will be at least one vaccine well before April. Priority groups (helth services, people with cancer, the elderly etc) will get it first, but Hopefully the general populations will have started getting it by April/May.

    The chance of a scale lockdown in the UK by November 11th is over 50%, the circuit breaker national lockdown is still very, very much on the table. Even with Tenet, Bill & Ted et al in theatres some cinemas that re-opened have closed again due to low (even allowing for capped capacity) numbers. They don't need to tell the future, they can see the present.

    This is disappointing obviously but I am not even angry at this point just completely over it to be honest. It's still EON's fault - because if they had of stuck with their second release date of Feb 14 2020 this film and Craig would be old news by now.

    The one thing that really irritates me is their recent marketing campaign. The Eilish clip, the podcast, all the posters and trailers - They would have known full well two weeks ago that they were going to delay so why continue to mess with fan expectations?

    This will have to be the last delay. Any further delays and the public will lack interest for a bond film that is 2 years old.

    Yes, one would think there was some syncronization between her people and EON.
  • Royale-les-EauxRoyale-les-Eaux LondonPosts: 462MI6 Agent
    Something must have happened today or a deadline been present that triggered something - maybe they had to let theatres know to release tickets or not - because it does seem really odd to release an official podcast to run over several weeks if you knew the plug was going to be pulled in a matter of days.

    It's not like making sure a brand partner can get stock onto the market place that they have to in 2020 for bottom line - which goes double in these straightened times.

    I know they can see the present, that's not my point, my point is - why April 2021? The world might be no better at that point.

    So I say they should have just released it VOD and accept it won't do as well financially.

    I know the world is in a terrible state, I'm not denying it, but it's when they promise release dates that gets on my nerves. They can't promise April 2021, unless they have that crystal ball.
