Universal Studios announced that the ninth installment of the Fast and Furious franchise, F9: The Fast Saga, will be delayed even longer than originally planned. The coronavirus pandemic pushed the release from May 22, 2020 to April 2, 2021—and now, an intra-studio competition has delayed the movie even further, to May 28, 2021.
It's all happening because the new James Bond film, No Time To Die, has been delayed yet again. Universal had planned to release the Bond movie in April 2020, then pushed it back to November 2020 due to COVID-19. Now, the studio has delayed the movie once more, until April 2, 2021 in order to allow for a worldwide theatrical release. Naturally, Universal wants to avoid launching two of its biggest blockbuster franchise movies on the same day, so the move necessitated another adjustment to the F9 schedule.
