The No Time To Die DVD and Blu-ray UK release date is fast approaching (see details below), so here is all of the info on Daniel Craig’s final home entertainment installment as James Bond. It might feel like it only just arrived in cinemas, but the good news for anyone that is struggling to find the time to catch it on the big screen is that you’ll soon have a couple more options to be able to catch the 007 swan song.
The story picks up with James and Madeleine in the aftermath of Spectre as they visit Vesper Lynd’s grave in Italy in an attempt to put their collective demons to bed. It makes for a great location for the start of the film and with the stunning backdrops, epic chase sequences and the realities of romance for the UK’s foremost secret agent with a license to kill it’s got a lot of re-watch value.Advertisement It’s already the second biggest film of the year, with only F9 taking more than it in the box office, but No Time To Die is still available to watch on the big screen, so it could catch up in time. It should also go on to be a big home entertainment release with both the DVD and Blu-ray topping their respective charts no matter how big the competition.
UK Blu-ray and DVD release date
No Time To Die has surprised everyone with an early DVD and Blu-ray release date planned in the UK for Monday the 20th December 2021. This make it a real contender for last minute minute Christmas shopping, which totally makes sense for fans of the series and the production behind the film.Advertisement It had its cinematic release date on the 30th September, which would ordinarily imply that the DVD and Blu-ray will be coming out early in the new year, but clearly Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Eon Productions wanted to get this in the shops in time for the holidays. The 20th doesn’t leave a great deal of room to pick it up in time for Christmas, especially with online deliveries being pretty much out of the question by this stage, but it should be pretty prominent in shops.

There isn’t currently a confirmed release date for No Time To Die on home entertainment in the US as of yet. It should still come out in time for Christmas, though, but there just hasn’t been an announcement as of yet and with the film being a UK production, they’ve clearly just been able to secure the details here first.Advertisement It’ll be available on Blu-ray and 4K, as well as on DVD, but the latter is strangely much more expensive that the Blu-ray and 4K options.

No Time To Die is packed with action and intrigue right from the very start and it doesn’t let up for a second until the film comes to its climactic close. It’s the kind of DVD or Blu-ry addition to your collection that will definitely get replayed for years to come and we’re expected the usual brilliance when it comes to the special features too.
The acting is exemplary and in general the story is a very fitting end for the 007 service that Daniel Craig has put into the series. James Bond is a very different character in the latest version and a big part of that is Daniel Craig’s treatment and the efforts of directors like Cary Joji Fukunaga to transition to a more modernised approach to the secret agent.
The only dip is the slightly cynical approach to emotional attachment that comes towards the end. If you’ve seen the film on the big screen already then you’ll know what we’re talking about, but we didn’t want to give too much away for anyone that hasn’t managed to get to the cinema to catch the film before the home entertainment release.
It may not be as razor sharp as Casino Royale was, but then none of the movies since then have quite lived up to its exceptional standards. No Time To Die comes pretty close though with the taught l’homme masque sequences, the stunning Italian tragedy and the intense Norwegian woods.
DVD and Blu-ray review: 4/5
