Trivia

The original title of the film was "Tomorrow Never Lies", which makes sense when you consider media mogul Elliot Carver (Jonathan Pryce) was creating the next day's headlines in advance, then causing those events to happen. But a typo on an early script draft was adopted by the producers, and Tomorrow Never Dies (1997) was used instead. See more »

Goofs

When the helicopter is about ready to crash into the building at the end of the motorcycle chase, crash dummies can clearly be seen as the only helicopter passengers. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Charles Robinson: Our man's in position on the center camera. It's like a terrorist supermarket. Chinese Long March Scud, Panther AS-565 attack helicopter, a pair of Russian mortars, and the crates look like American rifles. Chilean mines. German explosives. Fun for the whole family.

Fine follow-up to "Goldeneye"
14 May 2000 | by See all my reviews

"Tomorrow Never Dies" is the 18th James Bond film, with Pierce Brosnan back as 007. This is a very good follow-up to Brosnan's first Bond movie "Goldeneye". "Tomorrow Never Dies" had the unfortunate task of opening on the exact same day as "Titanic" (December 19, 1997). Even though "Titanic" went on to break box office records, "Tomorrow Never Dies" was not left in the dust. It surpassed "Goldeneye" domestically with a box office gross of $125 million ("Goldeneye" grossed $106 million). There are two major assets that make "Tomorrow Never Dies" really work, a great Bond villain and a great Bond woman. Jonathan Pryce is a major standout as Elliot Carver, the megalomaniacal media magnate Bond faces off against. The other standout: Michelle Yeoh as Wai Lin, Bond's female sidekick who makes a fine companion for Bond. Brosnan is fine as 007 as he was in "Goldeneye", and also returning for the second time are Joe Don Baker as CIA agent Jack Wade, Judi Dench as "M", Samantha Bond as "Miss Moneypenny", and Desmond Llewelyn as "Q". As for the other familiar face in the cast, Teri Hatcher from TV's "Lois & Clark" is just adequate as Elliot Carver's wife Paris. "Tomorrow Never Dies" is just as good as "Goldeneye"

***1/2 (out of four)
