Many fans expressed their frustration after the announcement after their favorite film have been pushed back to November because of COVID-19. The announcement comes days after the founders of two 007 fan sites called on the film studios to delay its release.
You can't blame the producers making this decision, it's a shame but public health is more important than a movie. At least it's better than no film at all. #NoTimeToDie
