plot twists, non-stop action, and cutting edge thrills, truly bringing the
franchise into the new millennium, in style.
BROSNAN returns for his fourth outing as 007

CLEESE (The World Is Not Enough, A Fish Called Wanda) as gadget

ANOTHER DAY the biggest and best Bond film ever.
ANOTHER DAY starts with a spectacular Hovercraft chase through a
deadly minefield in the demilitarized zone separating North and South
Korea – and the action doesn’t let up until the credits roll. From Hong Kong to Cuba to London, James Bond (Brosnan)
circles the globe in his quest to unmask a traitor and prevent a war of
catastrophic proportions. On
his way he crosses paths with Jinx (Berry) and Miranda Frost (Pike), women
who will play vital roles in his adventure.
on the trail of evil megalomaniac Gustav Graves (Stephens) and his
ruthless right-hand man Zao (Yune), Bond travels to Iceland and into the
villain’s lair, a fantastic palace built entirely of ice, where he
experiences firsthand the power of a new hi-tech weapon.
Ultimately it all leads to an explosive confrontation – and
unforgettable conclusion – back in Korea where it all started…

Hi Jinx! Easter Egg
24th February MGM issued a revised list of features, which contained the
now no mention of widescreen and full-screen versions being on the
"IN DEPTH LOOK AT THE MAKING OF THE FILM: Inside Die Another Day
(77 mins)" is now a substantially less "IN DEPTH"
thirty-one minutes long.
Blades and Antonov Fight "Scene
Evolution" features have been moved to the "Interaction
Sequences", explaining why the original release said there were
four of them.
IMAGE DATABASE section has been downgraded from 250 to 200 stills, and
the "Poster campaign" section is no longer listed.
"007: Nightfire trailer (Playstation 2 game)" has been
dropped, (although The Making of 007: Nightfare is still listed). The
James Bond Special Edition DVD Trailer is no longer listed, either
(perhaps because they've admitted that these are not "Bonus
Features", they're "adverts"!)
list of trailers and TV spots has been made more non-specific, but it
doesn't seem like there's anything to worry about there.
that this list is still a "work in progress". MGM have also
confirmed that the Region 1 Die Another Day disc will not
feature deleted scenes.
