“Die can wait” is one of the best known victims of the health crisis, with its repeated postponements. The film finally arrives in French theaters at the beginning of October. Before that, an exceptional preview will take place in France but we will have to heat up the credit card because the price is not affordable to all budgets.
To die can wait : the wait, that knows it
Daniel Craig’s last in James Bond is an event that deserves an outing in the best conditions. A passage directly on the small screen or with a reduced number of cinemas worldwide would be harmful. After successive postponements for reasons we all know, To die can wait come October 6 with us and at the same time everywhere else on the globe. It is likely to be one of the huge boxes of this year 2021, perhaps even the film that will make the most entries. Besides the financial considerations, which remain secondary for the spectators, we are especially eager to see what the last lap of Daniel Craig has in store for us. Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, To die can wait will put the hero at grips with a mysterious and formidable terrorist embodied by Rami Malek.
An expensive preview
For those who don’t want to wait until the fateful day, an exceptional preview will take place in Monaco September 29th. That is to say a big week before the arrival in theaters. The preview was already scheduled, at the time, in April 2020, but the postponement of the film had turned plans upside down. However, do not book your plane tickets or your day directly in the hope of getting there, as the price may deter more than one.
The cheapest individual seat is displayed at a price of $ 2,500 (€ 2,123). For this price, you will have the privilege of walking on the red carpet in front of the Opéra Garnier in Monaco, where the screening will take place. You can also leave with a bag full of gifts and attend the evening which will then take place at the Casino de Monte-Carlo. A whole experience is planned so that the spectators are fully immersed in the world of James Bond. If you want to break the bank more, a VIP package for two at 25,000 dollars (21,234 euros) can be booked, with even more substantial advantages.
An event for a good cause
The director as well as Prince Albert II of Monaco and Hollywood personalities will be present for the preview. On the other hand, the big black point is the absence of the cast. With seats at this price, one could expect to see the stars of the film in the heart of the Principality.
The profits recorded by the event will be used to finance the new “Princess Grace Award”, named for the occasion in “Sir Roger Moore scholarship”. The actor, who resided in Monaco, was also an iconic James Bond and one of the founders of the association. It is also funny to note that Cary Joji Fukunaga was able to obtain the Princess Grace Award years ago, and that he finds himself today on the other side of the fence. The Princess Grace Foundation-USA aims to fund emerging talents in film, theater and dance.
