They were used to the Daniel Craig films running hot and cold anyway. “So what if the last one sucked? Half of his James Bond flicks sucked anyway? Am I right?“
Consequently, No Time to Die (2021) raked in about $750 million which is low but acceptable for a Covid-era release.
The next film will be the one where the rot becomes detectable. Broccoli hasn’t officially killed Nolan’s project but she has stated it’s going to be a long time for that one. Which is another way of saying it’s dead.
