No Time To Die has had a rough time making it to the big screen. It was one of the first movies to get delayed due to COVID-19 and since then has had a handful of marketing false starts before needing to be delayed yet again. These movies are already massively expensive to make, and now MGM has to eat the cost of multiple marketing pushes. There is a good chance that this movie needs to break upwards of $500 million to break even, and then that might not be enough. This movie succeeding or failing could be the thing that either makes or breaks those new rumors that MGM might put itself up for sale. Despite another delay in Australia, it seems that No Time To Die is rolling the dice on the domestic and international box offices. Today, MGM released the final trailer for the upcoming James Bond movie teasing star Daniel Craig's legacy as the character and giving us more plot details than we got in 18 months. That seems to be the biggest indicator that this movie is finally coming out. Whether or not it's going to be a success is still very much up in the air.
Summary: In No Time To Die, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
