"MGM, Universal and Bond producers, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, today announced the release of NO TIME TO DIE, the 25th film in the James Bond series, will be delayed until 2 April 2021 in order to be seen by a worldwide theatrical audience," he captioned.
The account added that they are now looking forward to sharing the latest 007 film in 2021.
The Daily Mail UK reported that most people who watch James Bond films know that 007 is somewhat biased to a vodka martini.
If that's the case, why did the producers of "No Time to Die" used coke instead of the alcohol beverage? Using coke can make the filming location less slippery so that the motorbike stunt will be executed smoothly.
Splashing 8,400 gallons of coke in the streets
According to LADBIBLE's latest report, the production team paid $71,000 or £55,000 for the 8,400 gallons of Coca-Cola and splashed it around the streets. The film's location was around the town of Matera in southern Italy.
The prod team's plan was to leave the sticky soft drinks over the cobbles so that the 450cc bike would have a better grip when landing. This is true since coke contains lots of sugar.
The breath-taking motorbike stunt
Daniel Craig was replaced by Paul Edwards, his stunt rider, to complete the fantastic stunt. The stunt rider's goal was to hit a 25ft ramp at 60mph so that he could properly jump over a 60ft wall.
Thanks to Coca-Cola, the production team was able to pull off the extreme bike stunt. Lee Morrison, the one in charge of the scene, said that the popular drink also made the streets look "very clean."
