27-Feb-2020 • No Time To Die
Several cinema chains around the world and reputable film release websites have each updated in the past 24 hours with the same information (indicating it's coming from Universal Pictures) that 'No Time To Die' will have a run-time of 163 minutes. That's 2 hours, 43 minutes.
MI6 understands the pre-title action will run to 20 minutes, so after adding the credit sequence with the Billie Eilish song, that leaves 2 hours 20 minutes for the main movie.
Director Cary Fukunaga was recently asked if the film was 3 hours long and he said no, which is true, but he also didn't say that it was almost 3 hours long.
'No Time To Die' will be the longest James Bond film ever. With the exception of 'Quantum of Solace', each of Daniel Craig's outings have been amongst the longest in the franchise. Prior to that, 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service' was one of the longest at 140 minutes.
