The opening titles sequence, showing Bond's torture by North Korean jailers, is the first sequence which is part of the story for a Bond movie, and not just a separate aesthetically designed title sequence. See more »
Colonel Moon disappears the day Bond is captured and is presumed dead. Bond spent fourteen months in captivity and perhaps one month in the medical suite in M's remote headquarter. In that time, Moon has completed the gene therapy to transform into Gustav Graves, establish himself as a billionaire philanthropist, and get honored for his services with a knighthood. Generally civilians are honored with the Order of the British Empire, which has several levels and a knighthood is rarely offered until after decades of service. For example, Roger Moore received a Commander of the British Empire in 1999 after a decade of working prominently with UNICEF; he received the Knighthood four years later. See more »
