As we told you earlier, MGM was moving film 007 No time to die in the fall and away from the Easter weekend, April 2-4. Right now, the Cary Joji Fukunaga-directed feature film, which portrays Daniel Craig’s swan song as Mr. Bond, is set to premiere on October 8. MGM has just made the news official.
No time to die embarks on a new weekend against… Sony / Marvel Morbius. Indeed, a chicken game.
Universal has the 007 overseas, but they refuse to go hungry over Easter weekend. Remember they released Troll world tour on PVOD last year during this period and in all open drive-ins. Universal will now open its Bob Odenkirk film Nobody April 2 instead of February 26. Sony still has Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway planned over the Easter weekend, but that might not stay there.
Animated MGM’s Addams Family Suite will now be released the weekend before October 1, instead of October 8. Currently, Warner Bros. Dune On October 1, however, the studio and financier squabble over the film’s terms, with the latter not wanting a pure theatrical release instead of an HBO Max day and date play. Should Dune moving, that would not be out of the question for No time to die go up and Addams Family part 2 elsewhere.
Meanwhile, Focus Features’ Edgar Wright feature Last night in Soho will travel from April 23 to October 22. Last night in Soho leaves behind A Quiet Place, Part II and 20th Ron went wrong on April 23 and will now face Paramount Snake-eyes October 22.
