THE world premiere of the new James Bond film, No Time to Die, has been postponed until November 2020.

While there is no confirmation that the move is directly due to the Covid-19 outbreak, it’s widely assumed that to be the case.

The list of events falling at the wayside because of the global Coronavirus outbreak continues to grow this week, WSBK, MotoGP and now even 007 himself isn’t immune to what is becoming a thorn in the side of the global motorcycle industry.

The world premiere of the latest Bond film, No Time to Die, was slated to go ahead at the end of this month, 31st March, although the film's producers have taken the decision to postpone the event. The move has been taken to prevent staff, stars, and fans from having to risk contracting or spreading the virus any further.

The move is bad news for bike fans as the latest 007 movie promised to be one of the most bike-centric yet, with the iconic MI5 agent taking part in some pretty spectacular stunts, some of which were at the helm of Triumph Scramblers.

In a post on Twitter, the film’s producers said:

‘MGM, Universal and Bond producers, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, announced today that after careful consideration and thorough evaluation of the global theatrical marketplace, the release of NO TIME TO DIE will be postponed until November 2020.’
