“No Time to Die,” the latest entry in the James Bond series, will be available for rent for $ 19.99 on digital platforms in the United States starting Tuesday. An MGM representative confirmed the news to Variety.
Blockbuster 007 will be available on all major platforms including Amazon, Apple, Xfinity, DirecTV, Spectrum, and Vudu. Premium video-on-demand rental will provide viewers with 48 hours of access to the film.
After being repeatedly delayed throughout the pandemic, “No Time to Die” hit theaters in North America on October 8. size and is probably the result of its somewhat measured performance at the domestic box office. Bond films tend to attract an older audience, a demographic that has been reluctant to return to theaters during the pandemic.
“No Time to Die” fell a little short of expectations at the domestic box office, reaching just $ 55 million on opening weekend. However, thanks to notable international interest, the film has now surpassed $ 600 million worldwide.
Pre-pandemic, the recent Bond films “Specter” and “Skyfall” reached $ 70.4 million and $ 88.4 million on their opening weekends, respectively. “No Time to Die” topped “Casino Royale”, which drew $ 600 million in worldwide revenue in 2006 and “Quantum of Solace’s” $ 585 million in 2008. At the UK box office, “No Time to Die” became the biggest earner of the year, ahead of Marvel’s “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings”.
In his review of “No Time to Die”, Variety Chief film critic Owen Gleiberman hailed the blockbuster as “a formidable film: an up-to-date, realistic James Bond thriller with a satisfying neoclassical edge”.
