Daniel Craig Shares Sneak Peek of 'No Time to Die' During 'Saturday Night Live' Monologue - Watch!

Daniel Craig is taking over Saturday Night Live!

The 52-year-old actor hosted the sketch show on Saturday (March 7).

Since the release date for the upcoming James Bond movie No Time to Die has been postponed, Daniel decided to give fans a “sneak peek” of the movie during his opening monologue.

In the clip, Bond is a casino and at first is focused on his mission, before getting sidetracked by a game of Craps.

Bond then continues rolling die after die – constantly getting the results he wants and celebrates with a drink.

“Ladies and gentlemen, I have an announcement to make,” James Bond says. “I’m buzzed.”

No Time to Die will now be out in theaters on November 12.

James Bond Studio Is Losing a Lot of Money by Switching Release Dates Amid Coronavirus Fears

MGM, the film studio behind the James Bond franchise and the upcoming movie No Time to Die, is set to lose around $30 million to $50 million over the decision to delay the film’s release.

No Time to Die was supposed to hit theaters in April, but has been pushed back to November amid the Coronavirus outbreak.

THR is now reporting that the studio is going to lose the big amount of money, but they might have lost even more money if they released the movie in April as planned. The outlet estimates that 30 percent of the box office gross may have been lost by releasing the movie in April. With experts predicting that the movie will gross $1 billion worldwide, that means the movie would have lost around $300 million by hitting theaters on the original date.

It’s also being reported that a marketing campaign for a movie that is released in the fall is more costly due to more expensive commercials slots because of the holiday season.

There have been many reports that the Coronavirus outbreak could go away over the summer, but come back in the fall when the weather cools down again. If that does actually happen, MGM may be in a similar situation when November rolls around.

No Time to Die is Daniel Craig‘s final movie as James Bond and it’s one of the most anticipated movies of the year.

'No Time to Die' Release Date Pushed Back 7 Months

The release date for No Time to Die, the newest James Bond movie, has been moved back by seven months from April 2020 to November 2020.

“MGM, Universal and Bond producers, Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, announced today that after careful consideration and thorough evaluation of the global theatrical marketplace, the release of No Time to Die will be postponed until November 2020. The film will be released in the U.K. on November 12, 2020 with worldwide release dates to follow, including the U.S. launch on November 25, 2020,” a statement from the studio said (via Deadline).

As for why this move is being made, Deadline added that “This is purely an economic decision we understand, and not one based on growing fears over the coronavirus.” Movie theaters have been closing in China, Korea, Japan, Italy and France.

The final Daniel Craig-led film was supposed to hit theaters on April 2 in the UK and April 10 in the US.

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.”
