Also, No Time to Die is Daniel Craig’s last outing as James Bond. Hence, Craig and Barbara Broccoli, the producer have been discussing the current and future release strategy with Amazon-owned studio MGM. After all, there has been a larger debate going on about streaming or theatrical releases.

When talking to Sky Broccoli told, “We focussed on making the films for theatrical release and… I think that’s our position. [Amazon] certainly has told us that the films will be theatrical films in the future. And we’ll see what happens.”

Craig said that he is thankful to the producers and the studio to give his last bond film a theatrical release. He added that it is a “joyous thing” that the movie is getting a theatrical release. It would be sad to see its release on streaming service.
