New Bond movie opening
by Carol Edwards,
The 20th Bond film to be produced in the past 40 years, Die Another Day, will open locally and worldwide on Friday, Nov. 22.
As one of the 6,000 people invited to the Los Angeles premier held on Monday, Nov. 11, at the Shrine Auditorium, I have seen this film and predict that it will go down in history as the best yet. It is definitely different.
Shot on location in Iceland and the coast of Spain (which is represented as Cuba) and the rest produced on the huge lots of Pinewood Studio in London, the film is captivating and memorable with stars Pierce Brosnan, Halle Berry, Dame Judi Dench, John Cleese, Rick Yune, Toby Stephens, Rosamund Pike, Samantha Bond, Will Yun Lee and a cameo by Madonna. Produced by Barbara Brocolli and Michael G. Wilson, this film is being distributed by MGM.Watch this paper for more on the premier.
