The newest Bond film, No Time to Die, has been postponed to a November release. 

This pushback was called for by the production companies behind the film, MGM, Eon and Universal, as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. The companies stated on Twitter that this decision was made after a “thorough evaluation of the global theatrical marketplace.” 

In other words, no one will be able to purchase tickets to see the movie because theatres have been closing in China, Italy, and Korea due to the rapid spread of the virus. This is a big hit for those behind No Time to Die because they spent $250 million just making the film, according to HollyWood Reporter

China itself is not permitting big groups of people to gather in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus. China is the largest marketplace for movies outside of the US.
