The triumph of Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings in India caused a flurry of excitement in the industry, especially among exhibitors. It demonstrated that audiences are willing to flock to theatres in large numbers to see a large-scale, entertaining film. Everyone is now anticipating the release of No Time To Die, the 25th James Bond film, with bated breath. The film, which stars Daniel Craig, Rami Malek, Ana de Armas, and Léa Seydoux, has sparked a lot of interest among Indian fans and is likely to have a blockbuster opening on September 30.
And now, a source tells Bollywood Hungama, “No Time To Die will be released in 3D. It’ll be the first Bond film to have a release in 3D and this time, it’s happening in India as well.”
The fact that Warner Bros., which is releasing No Time To Die, has had an issue with the multiplex chains regarding 3D release makes this noteworthy. Warner had requested a cut of the 3D premium that the multiplexes charge their customers. The theatres, on the other hand, had declined to do so. The problem started in 2018, and since then, films like Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, Aquaman, Shazam, Pokemon Detective Pikachu, Godzilla: King Of The Monsters, The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, Wonder Woman 1984, and others that were released in 3D around the world have only been released in 2D in India.
The source also said, “Disney, which released Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings and Free Guy in only 2D for the same reason, also agreed with the percentage ratio of the sharing of the premium. Hence, it has released Jungle Cruise from today in not just 2D but also 3D.”
