Another new poster has appeared online for the new Bond movie No Time To Die featuring 007 actor Daniel Craig with a large gun and ready for action.
It's yet another lacklustre poster, but it does fit in with the marketing campaign that has been seen to date for the movie.
These posters really don't scream quality, and this new one, intentional or not, looks out of focus and like I knocked it up in Photoshop late last night.
The new movie is set for release on November 12th 2020, but with the current release of Tenet not doing the numbers expected many films are starting to have their release dates shifted again, so there is a possibility it may happen to this Bond movie.
Arguably it could be the real movie to restart the box office, but as its Craig last outing it a risk to take.
The 25th film in the long running James Bond, 007 series. No Time To Die has a retired James Bond living with Madeleine Swann who holds a dark secret. Bond's best friend from the CIA Felix Leiter delivers some news that puts Bond back into action against a new villain, perhaps to a deadly end.
With the recent release of Tenet not lighting up cinemas around the world, especially in America, it comes as no surprise that Warner Bros. have moved Wonder Woman 1984 to later in the year, December 25th in the US and December 26th in the UK.
Director Patty Jenkins announced when the film first got moved earlier in the year that the movie had to be seen on the big screen, the movie was moved once more and now gets moved again.
The release of Christopher Nolans Tenet could be seen as a test, and it would seem that test failed with many cinemas still not open across the world and other places like Europe starting to see a spike in COVID-19 cases with potential closures set to resume again.
This move also puts into doubt the release of the 25th Bond movie No Time To Die due November 12th along with Black Widow on October 23rd, which many fans fear could go direct to Disney+ for a premium like Mulan.
There are many other potential blockbuster toward the end of 2020 and into 2021 which could also be in danger of a release move or a direct to digital release.
With many predicting that the pandemic might not be over until late in 2021 this is bad news for the cinema industry and could see many independent business closing and a potential of larger chains also struggling.
10th September 2020
With cinemas in the UK still not operating anywhere near capacity and couple that with many people still not willing to spend a couple of hours in close proximity to other people tenet spends a second weekend at the top in a weaker box office than last week.
The top film of the weekend is 20th Century Fox's (and hence Disney's) much delayed mutant movie The New Mutants which makes its debut this week and has perhaps been a bit disappointing for many.
With the weakened weekend box office and the potential new spike in the COVID-19 cases the box office is not looking good, and if the likes of Wonder Woman 1984 and No Time To Die get delayed we may not see a full recovery until well into next year.
Here is a breakdown of this week top 5 movies in the UK 4th - 6th September 2020.
Christopher Nolans head scratching new movie which has split opinion among movie goers remains at the top in the UK box office for a second weekend with £2.1 Million.
This puts the movies total UK gross at £10 Million, it is the top movie of the summer period and could well be the top title for weeks to come.
Peerhaps coming in lower than expected the new Disney movie from the X-Men univers makes its debut at number 2 with £686.4K.
It's hard to know where this movie will go from here, it could be a long running movie as Unhinged has been, but if we get the new big blockbusters that are expected in the next couple of months it could sink without trace and end up on Disney+ sooner rather than later.
Directed by Roger Kumble this movie at first was not a top 5 movie but then when figures came in from the distributer it was a top 3 movie!
The film takes £256K on its debut with little in the way of hype or word of mouth.
Pixars computer generated animation falls to it lowest position since it launched on March with a weekend gross of £135.6K.
This puts the movies total gross as £6.9 Million after 13 weeks on the box office.
The Russell Crowe starring thriller drops to number 5 this week with £96.9K for a £1 Million total after 6 weeks of play.

The saviour of cinema has finally ben released after a couple of delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic closure, and its the first movie since mid-March to gross over a million pound in a weekend.
There is much debate as to weather the movie is the saviour of cinema, and a single big release wont stop many of the cinemas around the UK from sadly closing down, especially as movie theatres can only hace about 25% capacity at the moment.
But it is a start, and it seems despite the social distancing and mask wearing being mandatory until you sit down it good to see a start to the recovery, and with more big movies coming in the following weeks, save from a spike in the pandemic cinema is back.
Its nice to see that in the 9 weeks since cinemas re-opened the total top 15 movies have gone up almost every weekend with last week hitting just under a million pound, this weeks total is £6.1 Million.
Here is the top 5 movies at the UK box office weekend 28th - 31st August 2020.
We waited a long time for this and its finally here, Christopher Nolans mind bending movie makes its debut at the top of the box office with £5.3 Million (including previews).
The movie should hang around on the box office for a while, altohugh a move to VOD quite quick could be on the charts, competition in the coming weeks are Mulan, which is getting a Disney+ release simultaneously, The New Mutants this weekend Bill & Ted Face The Music which has just been brought forward to 16th September and No Time To Die in mid November.
The movie takes an incredible 87% of this weeks total box office taking.
Pixar's movie which just wont go away is again at number 2 this weekend with a gross of £185K which gives the movie a total UK box office gross of £6.6 Million after 12 weeks on the chart.
Alexs Stadermann's animated tale of werewolves goes back up a place this week to number 3 with £140K giving the movie a £828.6K after 5 weeks of release.
Is this Russell Crowe movie the real saviour of cinema, it was the first 'major' release after the closures!
This week the movie takes £112.4K as it fall from the top to number 4, this gives the film a £1.2 Million total gross after 5 weeks of release.
Director Matteo Garrone's adaptation of the classic story is at number 5 this week with £94.8K taking its total gross to £556.7K after 3 weeks on the chart.

A new poster has been released for upcoming movie No Time To Die which can seen below.
Starring among others Daniel Craig and Ana de Armas the movie is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and it has a release date of 12th November 2020.
I really hope the marketing for this movie kicks in really soon, apart from some very poor posters, some meaningless stills and a lacklustre trailer there has been little.
Considering the movie should have been released by now there must have been a load of marketing waiting to kick into gear, it worries me that the film wont be that good, and as its Daniel Craigs last outing, and he's been one of the best Bonds, that would be a real shame.
The 25th film in the long running James Bond, 007 series. No Time To Die has a retired James Bond living with Madeleine Swann who holds a dark secret. Bond"s best friend from the CIA Felix Leiter delivers some news that puts Bond back into action against a new villain, perhaps to a deadly end.
