No Time To Die premieres on UK television on New Year's Day 2023

No Time To Die to premiere on UK television on New Year's Day 2023

No Time To Die (2021) will have its UK terrestrial television premiere on ITV at 8.00pm on New Year's Day 2023, which will mark the narrowest big to small screen window of the series so far. The premiere on the UK's free-to-air commercial network comes just 460 days after its much-delayed big screen debut at London's Royal Albert Hall on September 28, 2021. UK audiences had to wait just over 13 years for the first James Bond Film Dr. No (1962) to eventually make it to the small screen. Despite not being fully networked across all regions, the first James Bond film was screened on Tuesday, October 28, 1975 and drew in an audience of 27-million viewers, making it the most-watched programme that week. It is very unlikely No Time To Die will have as big an impact, as its primetime holiday slot will face stiff competition.

Daniel Craig's fifth and final outing as James Bond also had the narrowest window to date between its big-screen debut and release to streaming platforms and home media during the festive period in 2022. ITV has been the home to the James Bond films on television in the UK since 1974 when United Artists controversially signed the initial deal for the broadcaster to screen the first six 007 films. Diamonds Are Forever (1971) then became the first in the series to be broadcast over the festive period, although originally failed to live up to the viewing figures of its predecessors when it premiered on Christmas Day 1978.

Billie Eilish wins Academy Award
Oscar victory for No Time To Die theme song

billie Eilish and brother Finneas O'Connell win Academy Award for ‘No Time to Die’

Singer/Songwriter Billie Eilish, along with her brother FINNEAS, have won the Academy Award for Best Original Song for ‘No Time To Die’ at last night’s Oscar ceremony in Los Angeles. The theme song from No Time To Die (2021) was co-written by Billie Eilish and Finneas O'Connell and follows their GRAMMY® win in March 2021 (six months before the eventual release of No Time To Die), and Golden Globe success on January 9, 2022. This is the third consecutive Bond film to receive the Academy Award for Best Original Song after Adele’s win in 2013 with ‘Skyfall’, and Sam Smith in 2016 for ‘Writing's On The Wall’ from Spectre (2015). Billie Eilish, accompanied by FINNEAS on piano, also gave a memorable live performance of ‘No Time To Die’ at the ceremony held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

No Time To Die was also nominated for Best Sound and Best Visual Effects, but lost out in both categories to Dune (2021), which also won Best Original Score for No Time To Die composer Hans Zimmer. The 94th Academy Awards ceremony also paid tribute to 60 years of James Bond in the cinema with a cleverly edited montage of clips from the series played over ‘Live And Let Die’ by Paul McCartney and Wings - the first entry from the official EON series to be nominated for Best Original Song back in 1973.

No Time To Die IMAX Screenings USA January 2022

To help celebrate the 60th Anniversary of James Bond’s first big screen outing, Dr. No, MGM and EON Productions are re-releasing No Time To Die in IMAX in selected US cinemas starting Friday, January 21st. These special showings will also come with an exclusive Q&A from Daniel Craig, Director Cary Joji Fukunaga, and series’ Producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson. The previously released documentary Being James Bond: The Daniel Craig Story, which was previously an Apple TV+ exclusive, and included on the 4K Blu-ray edition, is now available to watch on the official James Bond YouTube Channel.

No Time To Die was the first James Bond film to use IMAX cameras and in a press release for the upcoming event MGM’s Motion Picture Chairman Michael De Luca stated, “No Time To Die, which was the only movie released last year to have sequences shot with IMAX Film Cameras, captured the attention of both critics and audiences alike when it was first released globally in theaters last fall, eventually becoming one of the biggest films of 2021”. He continued, saying, “What better way to celebrate 007 turning 60 than to offer fans an opportunity to experience the film again in the most immersive theatrical environment.”

o Time To Die breaks $600M mark and on target for VOD/Blu-ray

After a record-breaking run at the international box office, No Time To Die has passed $600M in global ticket sales. In the UK and Ireland, No Time To Die is now the sixth highest grossing film of all time, surpassing Titanic (1997) and Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) in the last week. The 25th James Bond film continues to break records after consecutively grossing over £1M each day for the 29 days since release. This beats the previous record of 24 days held by Skyfall (2012), Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again (2018) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015). The latest 007 film also took the number one spot in China over the last weekend.

No Time To Die will also be available on premium Video-On-Demand streaming platforms from November 9th; just a month after it debuted in US cinemas, and in the UK from November 19th. Fans of the James Bond franchise waited a long time to see Daniel Craig's final appearance as 007 on the big screen as No Time To Die was delayed multiple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with the studios involved looking to find a release date that would best position the film for box office success. Cary Joji Fukunaga's film eventually premiered in London on September 28, 2021 and proved to be a post-pandemic hit. The 4K/Blu-ray release is now scheduled for December 20, 2021 - just in time for the Christmas market; with the 46-minute documentary Being James Bond among the handful of extra features. Retailers such as Amazon, Zavvi and HMV will be releasing their own exclusive box sets with additional collectibles.

“The past is not dead...” No Time To Die reviewed

The Daniel Craig 007 era has tried to offer us things that many hard-core 007 fans have long wished the series could provide – chief among them the concepts of continuity and consistency, both in terms of narrative, mood, and personnel, as well as an over-arching storyline and narrative that extends across multiple films.

Jamaica Tourist Board Releases No Time To Die Footage

To celebrate the release of the latest James Bond film, the Jamaica Tourist Board has released behind-the-scenes footage of No Time To Die. The footage showcases cast and crew as well as some of the locations shot in Jamaica.

Jamaica is the birthplace of 007, where Ian Fleming created and wrote the Bond novels. The island also features in the first James Bond film, Dr. No (1962), as well as in Live And Let Die (1973).

Jamaica is a key location in No Time To Die where Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life on the island. His peace is short-lived when his old friend, Felix Leiter, from the CIA turns up asking for help.

Hon Edmund Bartlett, Minister of Tourism for Jamaica, said, “Bond for us means we are a place for beginnings, but we are also a place for great endings”. And Hon Olivia Grange, Jamaica’s Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, commented, “It’s really something we have dreamt about and we are happy that it’s going to be a reality.”

Billie Eilish wins Grammy award for ‘No Time To Die’

Billie Eilish, and her brother Finneas O'Connell have won the award for Best Song Written For Visual Media at the 63rd GRAMMY® Awards held in Los Angeles on March 14, 2021.

Under normal circumstances ‘No Time To Die’ would not have been eligible for the award as the film has not yet been released, but GRAMMY rules were rewritten last year to allow for the delays caused by the current pandemic.

In addition to the GRAMMY win for ‘No Time To Die’, Billie Eilish and her co-writer brother FINNEAS have also won Record of the Year (‘Everything I Wanted’), for the second year in a row. Eilish swept the board last year with five GRAMMY Awards including Best New Artist, at the age of just 18.

No Time To Die, the 25th James Bond film, will be released in cinemas globally from September 30, 2021 and in the USA/Canada on October 8, 2021.

No Time To Die UK release date brought forward

No Time To Die international release date brought forward

MGM have today confirmed that the release date of No Time To Die will move forward to September 30, 2021 in international territories where the film is distributed by Universal Pictures. The change does not affect North America & Canada, where the film will be released by United Artists Releasing on 8 October, 2021.

This earlier international debut is in line with previous release schedules where James Bond films have usually opened in the USA a week after their international rollout. However, there is no guarantee this date will actually be met as planned, as the ever-changing world response to the Coronavirus pandemic is still having a major impact on schedules.

No Time To Die release delayed until October 2021

No Time To Die release delayed until October 2021

No Time To Die will be released in cinemas globally on 8 October 2021.

After weeks of speculation it has finally been announced that the 25th James Bond film will now be released on 8 October 2021. This marks the fifth time the release date has been changed. When production was announced on 25 May 2018 (with director Danny Boyle attached) the release was scheduled for 25 October 2019. With Danny Boyle's departure from the project and Cary Joji Fukunaga now directing, the release date was pushed to 14 February 2020. This date was subsequently changed to 3 April 2020.

On 20 January 2020 the world premiere at the Royal Albert Hall was announced for 31 March. On 3 March 2020 with the world now in the grip of the Coronavirus pandemic, the release of No Time To Die was postponed until 12 November 2020 with worldwide release dates to follow, including the US launch on November 25, 2020. MGM reputedly rejected a $600-million offer to release the film via streaming platforms. On October 2nd the release was delayed once again and rescheduled for 2 April 2021. The film is now set for an October 2021 release.
