We don’t typically write about Hollywood paydays at /Film unless they’re especially huge, but a new report brings word of three new instances which absolutely fit that description. Writer/director Rian Johnson, producer Ram Bergman, and star Daniel Craig are all poised to make $100 million each thanks to the surprising Knives Out sequels deal that Netflix made last week. The deal itself was worth $469 million, but the fact that these three players will receive $100 million each puts them in rarified air in Hollywood history. That’s Robert-Downey-Jr-Avengers-level money. Read More »
Netflix is close to finalizing a massive $400 million deal for Knives Out 2, with director Rian Johnson and Daniel Craig both expected to return. Netflix, Apple, Amazon, and more were all in the midst of a bidding war for the sequel, with Netflix likely to come out ahead. The deal will enable Netflix to potentially turn Knives Out into a full-blown franchise, and alternate reports indicate the streaming service has ordered both Knives Out 2 and Knives Out 3. Filming on the sequel is expected to start this summer, with casting beginning ASAP. Read More »
When will it be time to see No Time to Die? Apparently, the answer is, “Fall 2021, maybe?” The latest James Bond adventure has already had its release date shuffled around before, and currently, it’s sitting on an April 2021 release date. But multiple sources are reporting that the film is all but certain to move again – likely to sometime in the fall. While this news will no doubt disappoint Bond fans, it can hardly come as a surprise at this point.

Even though Tom Cruise and the Mission: Impossible franchise have become known for their death-defying practical stunts, Daniel Craig and the James Bond franchise have staged their fair share of cinematic mayhem. In fact, one particular No Time to Die stunt during the film’s production in Matera, Italy required a city street to be sprayed with 8,400 gallons of Coca-Cola, and it’s not even an egregious piece of production placement where James Bond crashes into a Coca-Cola truck.

No Time to Die has felt the brunt of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic not once, but twice, with the James Bond action flick in the full swing of its promo tour back when the pandemic hit the U.S. in March. MGM would end up delaying the Cary Joji Fukunaga-directed Bond movie by seven months — what seemed like a drastic step that ended up still falling short amid the still-ongoing pandemic. MGM would delay No Time to Die again from its November release date to April 2021, though apparently the marketing team didn’t get the memo to suspend the newly renewed promotional cycle. Which results in a tired-looking star Daniel Craig appearing on The Tonight Show to debut a new No Time to Die clip. See the clip below.

The posters for No Time to Die have not been very exciting. In fact, the posters for the entire Daniel Craig James Bond run have been rather lackluster. But hey, here’s a new one that’s not so bad! It’s still nothing compared to those classic Bond posters, with their wonderful, stylish art design. But it’s at least better than the one we got before this.

Well, here we go again! No Time To Die, the final entry in Daniel Craig‘s run as James Bond, was supposed to open in April. But then the coronavirus started to spread, and No Time To Die was one of the first – but certainly not one of the last – movies to be pulled from release as a result. Now, the film will try to find its way into theaters yet again, this time in November. And ahead of that November release we have ourselves a new trailer. Check it out below.
