A number of release dates for movies have been pushed back since the coronavirus pandemic made it irresponsible to gather too many people in one place.
One of those films is the latest in the James Bond franchise, No Time To Die.
This is Daniel Craig’s last outing as the spy, and the studio wants to send him off with a bang.
While we’re on the topic of ‘bangs’, the guns used in the Bond films over the years are almost as famous as 007 himself.
The Weston 44 Magnum from Live and Let Die, is the only one of its kind. The entire gun is finished in chrome, including the six and a half-inch barrel.
Unfortunately, according to RTE, the Magnum is one of the five Bond guns stolen from an Aldersbrook Avenue property in Enfield, UK, on Monday.
Neighbours described the intruders as three white males with Eastern European accents who drove away in a silver vehicle.
It is believed the suspects forced entry into the rear of the premises where they stole five firearms used in James Bond films, estimated to be worth more than £100,000 [over R2 million].
Beretta ‘Cheetah’ and Beretta ‘Tomcat’ pistols from Die Another Day, and the famous Walther PPK handgun used in A View to a Kill, are among the weapons reported taken.
The other stolen weapons include a Revolver Smith featured in Live and Let Die and a Llama 22 calibre handgun from Die Another Day.
The police were called to the scene, but the suspects managed to get away before they arrived.
Detective Inspector Paul Ridley, of North Area Crime Investigation Department (CID) said: “The firearms stolen are very distinctive and bespoke to particular James Bond movies.
“They will almost certainly be recognised by the public and to anyone offered them for sale.
This isn’t the first time that guns from Bond films have been stolen. Back in 2008, the golden gun from The Man With The Golden Gun starring Sir Roger Moore, was stolen from Elstree Studios.
While we wait for the chaos to subside and the film to reach cinemas, please enjoy Billie Eilish singing the theme song for No Time To Die.
