The premiere of the highly-anticipated movie was indeed moved to November due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, instead of finding out about the delay, those who click the ad will read a bogus Craig interview, in which he promotes "Bitcoin Era." 

The article claims that British investors can become millionaires in a span of four months. In essence, this is a textbook fraud that is camouflaged with fake automated trading software.
