TOMORROW NEVER DIES
1997, MGM/Park Circus, 119 min, UK, USA, Dir: Roger Spottiswoode

Released in Europe only in 70mm, the explosive, techno-packed TOMORROW NEVER DIES finally returns the Bond series to top form, with dashing Pierce Brosnan as Agent 007 battling media mastermind Jonathan Pryce, bedding ex-flame Teri Hatcher and sparring with fabulous Hong Kong action star Michelle Yeoh!


GOLDENEYE
1995, Park Circus/MGM, 130 min, UK, USA, Dir: Martin Campbell

Following the collapse of the Soviet empire, a renegade Russian general commandeers a deadly satellite; in order to stop him, James Bond must go up against a fellow MI6 spy - who's also licensed to kill. After a six-year hiatus, the world's most famous secret agent returned to the screen in this successful reboot of the franchise for the 1990s. GOLDENEYE introduces a new Bond (Pierce Brosnan), a new M (Judi Dench), a new Miss Moneypenny (Samantha Bond) and even a new car (a souped-up BMW replaces the trusty Aston-Martin). And though it's also the first of the series to utilize CGI effects, the film has plenty of good old-fashioned stunt work, including a breathtaking opening bungee jump and a chase sequence with 007 behind the wheel of a tank!


LICENCE TO KILL
1989, Park Circus/MGM, 133 min, UK, Dir: John Glen

On his way to CIA friend Felix Leiter's wedding, James Bond is pulled into a mission that leaves Leiter injured and his bride dead. Bond vows revenge on the drug lord responsible, tracking him to Central America even after M has revoked his license to kill. One of the darker and more violent entries in the series, this film was the last with Timothy Dalton as Agent 007. It also was the last produced by franchise co-creator Albert “Cubby” Broccoli (though he would later consult on GOLDENEYE), and the final Bond film from screenwriter Richard Maibaum and title designer Maurice Binder. With Carey Lowell, Robert Davi, Wayne Newton (as a televangelist) and a young Benicio Del Toro.
