James Bond uncovers a nuclear plot when he protects an oil heiress from her former kidnapper, an international terrorist who can't feel pain.
When Bond escapes the banker's office, the large sculpture of a Highland Terrier in the background is "Puppy" by Jeff Koons.
So good of you to come see me, Mr. Bond, particularly on such short notice.

In the final battle, Bond shoots up the dive controls of the submarine and it dives vertically down, straight into the bottom of the Bosporus. The sub is said to be a Victor-III that is about 100 meters long. The Bosporus around Istanbul, however, is only about 50 meters deep, so the rest of the sub would have stuck out of the water, not be fully submerged as shown.
The opening credits don't begin until approximately 15 minutes into the movie -- the longest delay in the series to date.
Press screenings ran at ca. 160 minutes. For general release the film was later cut down to 128 minutes.
