Die Another Day (2002) Poster

Alternate Versions

The R1 DVD release includes a special feature that allows viewers to watch raw footage of several key scenes, with the choice of multiple angles. One of these scenes - the sword fight between Bond and Graves - contains a rare blooper when Brosnan is unable to find the diamond in his pocket. Another multi-angle scene showing Halle Berry emerging from the water in her bikini, is hidden away on the DVD as an easter egg.
For the theatrical release, seven seconds were cut from the Jinx/Bond sex scene to secure a PG-13 rating in the US; this version was released on home video. All video versions released in or after 2006 are uncut. The main difference between the two is that Jinx moans loudly in the uncut version.
While their English voices and dialog remained unchanged, all of the Korean spoken by the characters was redubbed in the South Korean release to cover up their poor Korean accents.
The following scenes were cut from the film:
  • During the scene where Bond is driving on Cuba in his Ford Fairlane, there were some military maneuvers going on alongside the road.


  • There was an additional dialogue scene between Bond and Raoul.


  • The scene where Jinx kills Dr. Alvarez was originally longer: after the kill she breaks into his safe and steals a CD which she hides under her dress (in the making-of documentary you can see the CD hanging around Halle Berry's neck).


  • Deleted was a scene with Bond arriving at Heathrow. To avoid passport control, he disembarks the plane via the landing gear.


  • A scene with Jinx and Graves playing Ice Golf was cut. In this scene it was revealed why she is chasing Zao.


  • Lee Tamahori shot a raunchier version of the scene where Bond is rescued by Miranda Frost from Mr. Kil while investigating the biodrome. Here they were skin-deep in the hot tub to give the illusion they were lovers. This scene was cut due to censorship reasons.


  • A small scene where Jinx (in her leather outfit) is walking through the ice palace. This can be seen in the making-of documentary.


  • Originally General Moon realizes much earlier that Gustav Graves is his son. While Bond and Jinx are exploring the Antonov, they stumble across General Moon and Bond explains to him who Graves really is. He then continues with Jinx to go for the cockpit, while the General watches Graves and Miranda Frost planning the military campaign.
