26-Sep-2021 • No Time To Die
Bond fans in Malaysia will have to wait quite a bit longer to see 'No Time To Die' in cinemas.
United International Pictures (a distributor co-owned by Universal and Paramount) pulled the plug on Malaysia at short notice. Local cinema chain GSC posted a statement at the weekend that "Due to unforeseen circumstances, UPI has decided to postpone the release of 'No Time To Die' in Malaysia. The new release date is now 25th November 2021."
Malaysia has been under strict lockdown rules as part of the country's "Covid Zero" policy. Gatherings in public spaces have been restricted.
The news comes a couple of weeks after Universal quietly pulled the plug on Australia's release, which is now delayed until 11th November 2021 due to Covid lockdowns.
