If you plan on going to see Cary Joji Fukunaga‘s No Time to Die in theaters when it opens worldwide on October 8th, make sure you do one thing before you head out the door – go to the bathroom.
The twenty-fifth installment in the long-running and immensely popular James Bond film series, which stars Daniel Craig, Rami Malek, Léa Seydoux, Lashana Lynch, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Christoph Waltz, Ralph Fiennes, and Ana de Armas, has just gotten its official running time confirmed – it’s nearly three hours long. 2 hours and 54 minutes, to be precise.
This now confirms that No Time to Die is the longest James Bond movie ever, followed in second by 2015’s Spectre, also starring Craig, which clocked in at a total of two hours and twenty-eight minutes.
The upcoming Bond movie is scheduled to kick off the 17th Annual Zurich Film Festival on September 28th, making it the first time any movie from the iconic film series has been in the official selection of a festival.
No Time to Die is scheduled to be released in theaters on October 8, 2021.
