James Bond: In your defense, a moving target is harder to hit.
Eve: Then you'd better keep moving.
MGM and Universal have seemingly moved the target once again for the release of 'No Time To Die', ignoring the advice from James Bond in 'Skyfall'.
According to UK trade organization the Film Distributors Association, the release date for 'No Time To Die' has been pulled up from October 8th to September 30th. This follows chatter earlier this week that Universal had brought the film forward in Russia to the same date.
It runs contrary to the last official date announcement that 'No Time To Die' would be released on October 8th "globally."
UPDATE: Universal Pictures (UK) confirmed the September 30th date a day later (24th February 2021)
UPDATE: MGM confirms that the international release date has moved to September 30th, but the USA and Canada are keeping the later October 8th date (25th February 2021)
There is no word yet if this change will be made in North America too.
The only other James Bond film to make its premiere in September was 'Goldfinger' back in 1964.
