Events of the Week: ‘No Time To Die,’ Academy Museum Kick Off and More

As Hollywood events return to full force in New York and Los Angeles (and this week, in London) amid the coronavirus pandemic, here’s a look at the week’s biggest premieres, parties and openings, including No Time To Die, the Academy Museum’s premiere party and the New York Film Festival.

No Time To Die world premiere

After five pandemic-induced delays, the 25th James Bond film finally premiered in London on Tuesday to a star-studded spectacle including Rami Malek, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Ana de Armas, Lea Seydoux, Lashana Lynch, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, director Cary Fukunaga, and of course, Bond himself, Daniel Craig. Billie Eilish and brother Finneas, who are behind the film’s Grammy-winning title song, also walked the red carpet, while Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles made a royal appearance.

Grand opening of Lawrence J. Ellison Institute for Transformative Medicine

Larry Ellison unveiled his new state-of-the-art West L.A. cancer center on Tuesday, alongside children David and Megan Ellison and supporters Judd Apatow, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Sara Foster and Mayor Eric Garcetti. The Ellison Institute, led by Dr. David Agus, aims to “bring together technologists with different skills, biologists, physicists, mathematicians and data scientists to discover innovative new approaches to combat disease worldwide,” Larry Ellison said in his speech. “Our primary focus is still on cancer, but the COVID-19 pandemic made it painfully clear that we need to broaden our research horizons to include infectious disease.”
