The opening of the latest James Bond movie "No Time To Die" has been delayed, scrapping its original April release date until November in response to the coronavirus outbreak, according to a statement issued by producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli on Wednesday.

Why it matters: It's the first major Hollywood movie to push back its global rollout amid virus concerns.

  • The film is now expected to hit theaters in the United Kingdom on Nov. 12 and the United States on Nov. 25.
  • Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and starring Daniel Craig, it was set for release in early April following a March 31 world premiere in London.

The big picture: MGM is not the only production company taking precautionary measures.

  • Disney also delayed the release of the live-action remake of "Mulan" in China indefinitely as national officials closed thousands of movie theaters to prevent the spread of the virus.

Why it matters: The quality of counterterrorism and intelligence capabilities in Afghanistan is a critical question facing the Biden administration as U.S. forces move closer to total withdrawal by Sept. 11.
