James Bond Fans Urge Movie Studio To Push Back Release Date of Daniel Craig's 'No Time To Die'

Daniel Craig heads back to his car after a lunch meeting with some friends in New York City on Monday afternoon (March 2).

The 52-year-old No Time To Die actor seemed to be in a happy mood after grabbing a bite to eat.

A group of fans of the James Bond franchise has urged the studio to push back the release of the upcoming film because of the coronavirus outbreak.

In an open letter, writers for the MI6-HQ website wrote that they should “put public health above marketing release schedules”, according to THR.

“With a month to go before No Time to Die opens worldwide, community spread of the virus is likely to be peaking in the United States,” the letter continues. “Today, Washington declared a state of emergency. There is a significant chance that cinemas will be closed, or their attendance severely reduced, by early April. Even if there are no legal restrictions on cinemas being open, to quote M in Skyfall, ‘How safe do you feel?’”

The letter urged the companies to push the release to the summer, when the outbreak is predicted to be under control.

“It’s just a movie. The health and well-being of fans around the world, and their families, is more important,” the letter says. “We have all waited over four years for this film. Another few months will not damage the quality of the film and only help the box office for Daniel Craig’s final hurrah.”
