Items listed with autumn delivery suggest decision to delay No Time to Die has already been made.
The official 007 Store has revealed three new additions to its line up. In doing so it has added weight to the near certain rumour that MGM and Eon Productions are about to announce No Time to Die will be further delayed to November 2021.
A Micro Scalextric set and two Corgi models are listed on the store for pre-order. However the Scalextric set is listed for delivery in the autumn and the Corgis for delivery in November.
There has been persistent chatter over the past few days that the film is set to be delayed again and with the Covid-19 pandemic still raging April never looked like a realistic release date anyway.
While November may seem a long time off, countries are still struggling under Covid-19. And although we now have vaccines it will take months to produce, distribute and vaccinate everyone, let along give the booster jabs that will almost certainly be required. That may mean even November doesn’t offer a realistic release window for the next James Bond film.
As always, time will tell and the actions taken by governments and by their citizens will help affect the course of the pandemic.
Anyway, here are those new items available for pre-order in the 007 Store:
