RELEASE DATE : NOVEMBER 22, 2002
James Bond's newest mission begins with a spectacular high-speed hovercraft chase through a minefield in the demilitarized zone separating North and South Korea. From Hong Kong to Cuba to London, Bond circles the world in his quest to unmask a traitor and prevent a war of catastrophic proportions.
On his way, Bond crosses paths with 'Jinx' (Halle Berry) and 'Miranda Frost' (Rosamund Pike). Hot on the trail of deadly megalomaniac Gustav Graves (Toby Stephens) and his ruthless right-hand man 'Zao' (Rick Yune), Bond travels to Iceland into the villain's lair : a palace built entirely of ice. There he experiences firsthand the power of a new hi-tech weapon. Ultimately it all leads to an explosive confrontation - and unforgettable conclusion - back in Korea where it all began ...
"Bond is betrayed by the bad guys and he's betrayed by his own people," Brosnan says. "It lends itself to a far better movie than just having special effects, followed by more special effects, followed by a bedroom sequence ... there was stuff for me to play, and that's what you're always looking for as an actor."
The original British Bond car, an Aston Martin, returns. But this version is a modern, $227,000 racer equipped with a 460-horsepower engine and "all the bells and whistles we came to know in 'Goldfinger."'
