James Bond heads to stop a media mogul's plan to induce war between China and the UK in order to obtain exclusive global media coverage.
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.
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 fleet as seen is missing the Royal Navy's most powerful units, the aircraft carriers, of which at least one would almost certainly have been sent along with any naval buildup. Further, none of the ships present choose to deploy their helicopters for recon or assault on the stealth ship.
James Bond will return.
The film received cuts for the MPAA and heavier cuts for the BBFC. Some of these are missing from the so-called "Uncut" Ultimate Edition DVD released in 2006.
