007: No Time To Die Offered To Streaming Services

Apple, Netflix and other streaming services explored the possibility of acquiring “No Time to Die,” the upcoming James Bond movie that was originally slated to debut last April. The film’s release has been postponed multiple times, with the Daniel Craig vehicle moving back to November before being pushed into 2021 as the number of coronavirus cases kept growing.

MGM, the studio behind the film, reportedly lost between $30 million to $50 million due to the delays, insiders said.

“We do not comment on rumors. The film is not for sale. The film’s release has been postponed until April 2021 in order to preserve the theatrical experience for moviegoers,” an MGM spokesperson told Variety.

However, multiple insiders at rival studios and companies said that a possible Bond sale was explored overtly, and believe that MGM was at least open to the possibility of unloading their crown jewel for a princely sum. The studio was said to be looking for a deal of roughly $600 million — a price tag that was deemed too rich for two of the free-spending streaming services.

Moving “No Time to Die” to a streaming service poses some logistical challenges. The film costs more than $250 million to produce and has lined up several promotional partnerships to help defray those costs — including Land Rover, Omega watches and Heineken. Those companies may have been expecting the film to hit theaters and might not be thrilled with a streaming-only bow.

I haven't seen that much hype around it but also I'm probably not the demographic, anyway looking at the past film gross I'd sell it for 600 million, maybe more if I could get away with it

Based on these trends (please note Jill sucks at math), $600 million seems like a reasonable prediction for a total gross, if you predicted one of the lowest possibilities. So if sending it to streaming directly greatly affects the movie's final gross, then Jill'd say the price tag is a little too high doug.

Then again, the best Jill can do is $10.

HBO should get it. They can turn it into a money making tank. But there is not way one single streaming service would pay 600 million for it. Even though, it's well worth it. Daniel turned that franchise into a billion dollar movie franchise.

Yeah but you are going in reverse Daniel turned a failing franchise into a billion dollar a movie franchise. Skyfell and Spectre being the last two. This movie would have made at least Spectre numbers. Too bad Covid killed the Daniel Craig Bond series.

Even if they keep delaying it, almost everyone will watch the movie once it comes out in the theatres. Why will they lose money just for the heck of it? I’m sure people can wait till next year.

I think it is definitely a film that should be seen on the big screen at least once, but I honestly cannot imagine going back to cinemas next spring, at least in the US.
