    The return of James Bond to the big screen is the help Yorkshire's cinemas need, according to the organisation that represents the region's film industry.

    The new film, No Time to Die, opens in cinemas today, after lengthy closures during the pandemic.

    Sally Joynson from Screen Yorkshire says: "All the excitement and glamour around Bond movies is a calling card for the future of cinema, and as Hollywood opens up and the big blockbusters start again, I think we'll see bigger audiences coming back."

    The film had its premiere in London earlier this week, with rave reviews from critics.

    However, Dr Richard McCulloch, a film expert from the University of Huddersfield, says it comes at a time when cinemas are facing lots of competition from streaming services: "You can totally understand why that would be a concern, if you don't have to leave your home and can buy it online instead.

    "One of the reasons for putting films on streaming services is so the studios get more of the profit."
