As the world scrambles to right itself, the latest James Bond film, No Time to Die, is struggling to find a place for itself.

James Bond actor Daniel Craig

The film has been delayed yet again, this time to October 8, amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The announcement was made by the official 007 Twitter account yesterday.

Previously, the 25 installment in the Bond franchise was slated for release in April 2020, then postponed to November 2020 and then to April 2021, as the virus effects continued to grow.

Theatres have been heavily impacted, with many shuttering due to restrictions and audiences avoiding those that remain open.

The film is the last which will star lead Daniel Craig as the international spy.
