Tomorrow Never Dies

Continuing our quest to watch all of the James Bond Films in order, we watched Tomorrow Never Dies on Saturday night. Released in 1997, it is the eighteenth spy film in the James Bond series and the second to star Pierce Brosnan as the fictional MI6 agent James Bond.

In the film, Bond tries to stop a media mogul from engineering world events and starting World War III. The media mogul uses a stealth ship and a GPS encoder to try and start a shooting war between the British fleet and the Chinese.

In addition to Pierce Brosnan as James Bond and and Dame Judi Dench as M, the film stars Jonathan Pryce as Elliot Carver (a media mogul modelled on Robert Maxwell), Michelle Yeoh as Colonel Wai Lin (a Chinese spy) and Teri Hatcher as Paris Carver (a former girlfriend of Bond who is now Carver's trophy wife).

This is a flim that I saw in the theater; I have some strong memories of the scenes with the BMW in the parking garage. In fact, I am pretty sure that Sharon and I saw it together in the theater.
