At a really exciting time for entertainment in Saudi Arabia, it is great to get back to the cinema and enjoy the first major release since we have begun to look ahead after the COVID-19 pandemic.”
In “No Time To Die,” Bond has left active service, and his peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology. The movie is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and stars Daniel Craig, Rami Malek and Ana de Armas.
“No Time to Die” is screening at AMC Cinemas locations in Riyadh, Jeddah, Hafr Al-Batin, Al-Dawadmi, and Al-Majmaah.
