When the UK was plunged into lockdown in March last year, cinemas across the country were forced to close their doors. 

With the closure of cinemas also came film delays! Now that life seems to slowly be returning to normality, we take a look at some of the films due for release in 2021.

No Time to Die - September 2021

James Bond was one of the first casualties of the pandemic. The film was initially scheduled for release in April 2020 but the producers made the difficult decision to delay Bond's 25th adventure to November. The film was then delayed again to April 2021 and then AGAIN to November. In the film, 007 has left active service but is called back to action following the disappearance of a scientist. No Time to Die is now scheduled for release on September 30th this year.

Black Widow - May 2021
