Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and the final outing of Daniel Craig as 007, MGM and Eon's No Time to Die had been set to begin rolling out internationally in early April following a March 31 world premiere in London. It was scheduled to open in North America on April 10.

The Coronavirus outbreak is no longer limited to china, it has widely spread over european countries like Italy and France, While Iran is the most affected in asia. USA has also encountered lot of positive cases. The Gov't in these countries have already requested their citizens to avoid gathering in large no.s in small and closed spaces. So, for any movie which is releasing in this period is likely to get less or no audinence in theatres. `No Time to Die` is from the franchise who has given most no. of blockbusters and the producers can't risk to release the movie in such a time.
But regardless of time, this movie will now be giving tough competition to the movies releasing in the month of november and those movies production houses should now start to get their marketing plans redefined.
`Godzilla vs Kong`, `Marvel's Eternals` and `Disney's Raya and the Last Dragon` are the major movies alongside `No Time to Die` in November 2020.
On a lighter note `No Time to Die` postponed because people are busy in fighting the coronavirus and they have No Time to Die.
