Hi all 

I went to see the new bond film No time to die at the weekend 

Won't give anything away but thought it was worth watching and gave different side of bond than seen in other
films 
Would recommend going to see it

    I'm looking forward to it but can't do cinemas.  I've been wondering when it'll be released on DVD.

    Hi @OverlyAnxious

    Thanks for getting involved in our discussion about Bond's movie. According to Amazon (UK), Bond's DVD called 'no time to die' (2021) is due to be released on the 31st of December! You can also pre-order if you would like to. I hope you are also able to access it soon :D

    Do you reckon I can get to Dec 31st without any spoilers?  :D

    That seems a weird date to release it though, would have thought they'd release it before xmas so people could buy it as a present.

    @OverlyAnxious I won't put any spoilers on 

    There are rules I think about when a film can be released on dvd which is showing at the cinema so that could be why it's not being released before christmas

    I have Sky (It keeps me from going sane haha) but I’m pretty sure Sky Store is on Google online or on a TV stick or whatever they’re called. I wasn’t trying to be rude with that comment lol.

    Hi @OverlyAnxious,

    Haha, I think you would have to avoid the internet and the media more generally to avoid spoilers! I think it will be a tough challenge. Absolutely agree with you though that I thought it would be before Christmas! Hopefully, they will realise what we have already realised and move it forwards  :D

    Just checked again and they have indeed moved the release date to before Christmas.  It's now Dec 20th at HMV & Amazon.  :smiley:

    I love the bond franchise more so the old ones rather than the new, but still very much enjoy them. I can't goto the cinema though as its a place I would class as a worst nightmare of mine due to sensory issues. So I can't wait for it to be available on amazon.

    The reviews I've heard too make me want to watch it more so can't wait to see it later this year.
    I have Autism, ADHD, Schizophrenia, Gilberts Syndrome and Crohn's Disease and have knowledge in these areas.

    We went to see the new bond and loved it, i think amazon have bought the rights to the bond movies so it'll be on prime soon i would imagine, my favourite bond was Roger Moore growing up, but i love them all really, i have them on bluray and go through them a couple of times a year
