James Bond film, No Time To Die will be hitting the theatres sooner than expected in the UK, Daily Mail reported. The film that has been pushed further because of the COVID-19 pandemic was supposed to release in April 2021, a year after its original release date but was pushed six months forward to October because the lockdown in the UK had been reinstated. The makers of the film chose not to release the film at a time when most theatres were closed or were opened in a very limited capacity. No Time to Die release date in UK has been set for September 30, 2021, if there are no more push backs, according to the article.
