Believe it or not, we are on the cusp of the 25th James Bond movie; however, it looks like we will have to wait a couple more months until the movie hits theaters.
This news comes to us from Deadline and during a time of shakeup for the 2020 release calendar. The currently untitled Bond 25 will now stir up Easter weekend, opening on April 8, 2020 instead of the initially announced Valentine’s Day 2020. The move comes off the heels of the news that Universal recently pushed back the release date for its ninth Fast and the Furious film from the same April weekend to May later that same year. Now with the powerhouse franchise moving off of that date, James Bond decided to make himself at home there.
The move is a show of confidence on the part of MGM. By pushing the film back into a more crowded and competitive springtime, the studio shows that they believe in their product and the team they have assembled together behind it.
This will be the longest gap between Daniel Craig James Bond films, but a vote of confidence is what the series needs right now. The last film in the franchise, Spectre, was not as well received critically or at the box office, grossing over $220 million less than its predecessor, Skyfall, which was one of the best received James Bond movies in both areas.
What do you make of this movie? Do you think it is in the best interest of the upcoming James Bond flick? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
Production on the 25th James Bond film is set to begin on March 4, 2019, at Pinewood Studios. Details on the project are currently unknown, though it is set to be Daniel Craig’s final outing as 007 after having played the character in Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace,Skyfall, and Spectre.
James Bond 25 is scheduled to be released in theaters on April 8, 2020.
Suicide Squad Characters That Can Appear In The James Gunn Sequel
James Gunn is directing The Suicide Squad for Warner Bros. but that comes at a cost.
When the first Suicide Squad was about to hit theaters DC fans were completely ecstatic. The trailers looked great and the feel of the movie was much different than the darkness that preceded it in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This movie was expected to be one of DC’s biggest hits and it turned out to be one of the biggest let-downs of all time.
Suicide Squad was bad and its reviews reflected that. It was one of the only movies I’ve ever been upset at and it made me want to leave the theater. A sequel was announced because the film did well at the box office, going through a number of drafts until James Gunn was brought on to write it. With James Gunn now officially set to direct The Suicide Squad, it looks like the film will be a bit of a soft reboot.
Last night was a bit of a DC maelstrom of news. We got the release dates and official titles of Matt Reeves’ The Batman and James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. Both movies will be hitting theaters in Summer 2021. Throughout all of the chaos a small tidbit surfaced about The Suicide Squad: the James Gunn-directed film will be some sort of relaunch with new characters and actors. Here are the characters I think James Gunn should introduce in his Suicide Squad movie. Hit Next to view all of my choices.
