Film producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, along with MGM and Universal, announced the news on Twitter Wednesday. Producers moved the original release date from April to November.

Now, UK theaters will release the film Nov. 12 and then hit the big screen worldwide Nov. 25.

 

Publicity plans and strategies for the James Bond movie have been canceled in China, Japan and South Korea because of the virus outbreak. The coronavirus started in China and has since spread across the globe.

The film is already gaining attention ahead of its release — especially after announcing Billie Eilish singing the new theme song.
