Oscar-winning filmmaker Danny Boyle has demanded that the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics be delayed until sunset.

Boyle, who is masterminding the London 2012 opening ceremony, has said that the event should be pushed back so the fireworks can be viewed at night, the Daily Mail reports. The Olympic clock has been timed to reach zero at 7.30pm, start time for the ceremony, on July 27, next year. But Boyle, 54, says his show will lose its impact unless it is delayed.
