Tomorrow Never Dies (1997) Movie Review

This week our movie review turns into an episode of The Grand Tour/Top Gear, as Justin bores us all to f’ing death about the models of BMWs used in this movie. Paul and Samir couldn’t give a toss, as BMWs are mass manufactured junk!

In Samir’s facts, he tells us what year this movie was released, and other fascinating trivia Paul also loses his mind over the leading theme song and wishes for a peaceful end.

Tomorrow Never Dies is a 1997 spy film and the eighteenth in the James Bond series to be produced by Eon Productions, and the second to star Pierce Brosnan as the fictional MI6 agent James Bond. Directed by Roger Spottiswoode, with the screenplay written by Bruce Feirstein, the film follows Bond as he attempts to stop Elliot Carver, a power-mad media mogul, from engineering world events to initiate World War III.

The film was produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, and was the first James Bond film made after the death of producer Albert R. Broccoli, to whom the film pays tribute in the end credits. Filming locations included France, Thailand, Germany, Mexico and the United Kingdom. Tomorrow Never Dies performed well at the box office, grossing over $333 million worldwide, becoming the fourth-highest-grossing film of 1997 and earned a Golden Globe nomination despite mixed reviews. While its performance at the domestic box office surpassed that of its predecessor, GoldenEye, it was the only one of Pierce Brosnan’s Bond films not to open at number one at the box office, as it opened the same day as Titanic, and finished at number two that week.
