New DIE ANOTHER DAY Trailer Online!!

Published at: Oct. 3, 2002, 6:35 a.m. CST

Hey, everyone. "Moriarty" here with some Rumblings From The Lab.

Not only has the Madonna theme song for DIE ANOTHER DAY crept online in the last few days, but there’s also another new trailer. Didn’t the last one premiere just a week or so ago? Or did it just seem like it?

Click here to see all sorts of James Bond goodies!!

As an action trailer, that worked for me. I have a lot of baggage with the Bond franchise, and I’m doing my best to check it on a film by film basis. All I ask of any Bond film now when I walk in is to be entertained by a big-budget action thriller that plays at least a little smart and manages to contain the smirking to a bare minimum.

This one looks cool. Lee Tamahori hasn’t really made a great American film yet, but maybe this is where he steps up and really makes a name for himself.

As always, I want to believe the best, and that trailer certainly gives me reason to hope.

"Moriarty" out.

    Smirking is better than being Stiff

    by KONG33

    And Pierce needs to loosen up so badly as oo7. The James Bond movies should be the smartest action films, but also playful and classy. I guess you've just grown tired of Bond's sexuality, and need mature elements like those found in Austin Powers. - kidding!

    Trailer alone kicks XXX's butt - BUT...

    by workshed

    that Madonna poo stinks. The worst Bond theme EVER!?! Sounds like it to these ears. The real highlights look to be the scene's between '007' and 'Q'. This certainly got my heart a-beatin'.

  • Oct. 3, 2002, 8:04 a.m. CST

    Oh Christ! That dialogue!

    by KONG33

    AARHHR. Spare us! Now I really see what you mean by 'smirking'. That is the stupidest, most dull, unfunny, wretched movie dialogue I've ever heard! All compiled for the trailer! Bond used to be the classiest, most interesting spin on an action flick. Now he surfs. "Looks like we're going down, together!" "Not yet!". "Bond was just explaining his BIG BAND theory." "Yeah, I think I got the THRUST of it.". "My name's James Bond." "Well, that's a MOUTHFUL.".

  • Oct. 3, 2002, 8:05 a.m. CST

    Again, Wretched Dialogue

    by KONG33

    Correction: BIG BANG theory, not BIG BAND theory, lol.

  • Oct. 3, 2002, 8:25 a.m. CST

    I liked the villain

    by KONG33

    he's creepy, maybe not over-the-top enough. oo7 has tried so hard to be sort of respectable, but it's playful at heart.

    This Bond movie is going to kick ass more than the last one.

    by WarDog

    I forget--just what was the last Bond movie? As for all you bitching about the smirking lines, shit, that's a trademark of Bond films since Dr. No, goddammit, so sod off! Why should I care about stupid dialogue if I get great action, sex and violence? Oh, and incredibly gorgeous women like Halle Babeski!

    AICN is in for it...

    by MightyColonic

    After all that has been said about file sharing and bootlegging of films, AND music, I am shocked to see that AICN has the balls to post a file of an unreleased song, by an established artist. HOLY FUCK, YOU ARE FUCKING STUPID. I HOPE YOUR DUMBASSES HAVE TIME FOR A LAWSUIT. HAHAHA

    by Qwerty Uiop

    Absolutely fucking ridiculous. "your mama?" Jesus Christ. It gets worse every time. I hope the next film ends with a bullet through Bond, James Bond's head.

    This is going to be the "Batman & Robin" of James Bond movies

    by The Hitman

    This movie looks like a Joel Schumacher catastrophe. And like one I predict it will make 40 million dollars it's first weekend and then it will drop off the map. Harry Potter will beat this movie during it's second weekend. How could Halle Berry lower herself to being in this over-budgeted, horribly unoriginal, filled with cheesy one liners, piece of shit??!! I have a prediction for the next film, since this one looks like they had maybe 30 million more dollars to spend on it than TWINE. I'm guessing that for the next James Bond movie they will have the first ever CGI Bond villain. And guess what, it'll be JAR JAR BINKS!!! James Bond has really gone downhill these last three movies. There is really no realism anymore in them, nor any attempts by the actors to deliver great performances except for maybe Judi Dench. Brosnan just acts like himself in these movies, he doesn't really act the part of Bond at all. Halle Berry is just delivering one liners, gee that takes a tremendous amount of acting talent there. *rolls eyes* "Yeah I think I got the....thrust of it!!" Haha! you're so hilarious Halle!!! "Your mama!!!" And the song sounds terrible! What's wrong with just using the classic James bond music? Why does James Bond music now have to have a rock feel?? Personally I would really like for them to get an actor and a director who would really take the projects on seriously and not try and cheese it up so much. Dalton's Bonds and early Connery Bonds were films that were done with seriousness and the acting was superb. I really hope they can go back to that because I think that may be the only thing that saves this franchise from destroying itself. They should bring John Glen back to direct the next one.

    I really hope the next Bond film doesn't come out in three y

    by Tarl_Cabot

    I'm a diehard Bond Geek and I hate when the series gets delayed-they established a bi-annual schedule 30 odd years ago and I wish they stick to it! Anyway, I hope this one works.It looks great. The budget is huge as usual but a good Bond is about style and not about competing with The Matrix and other big action films. ****Pierce Brosnan is starting to look a little old; he signed on for one more but maybe he should give it up after that. He's been associated with this role since '86...I'd hate to see him make Roger's mistake of going to the well too many times.

  • Oct. 3, 2002, 3:01 p.m. CST

    That Dialog is pretty frickin embarrassing; people trash Dalton

    by Tarl_Cabot

    That makes her character a cardboard sterotype...She just won a FUCKING OSCAR for christs sakes!The action looks great but the dialog...oh boy! I'm a huge fan but I was horrified at the crack Pierce made at the end of TWINE-"I thought Christmas only came once a year"! They named that character Christmas so they could throw that crap in? Groan! I hope this movie kicks ass but don't embarrass us Bond people! I liked the Dalton films-he was understated and professional-like a secret agent should be. The stories were minimalistic and had realisim in the action scenes-or at least they used real stunts and not CGI. They could do so much with this character; make him relevant. Every bond film lately makes me say "I hope they get it right next time"...I hope it's great on Nov 22. I'll be there opening day regardless.

    Hitman, this one's for you

    by UET1AGENT

    First of all your very unfunny and unoriginal sarcasm falls on deaf ears here mate, because as you can see the majority of people here like Bond. I've got no problem with you disliking past Bonds, thats your opinion. But I just want to ask you how you could possibly know what this movie is going to be like before you've even seen it. You've already established that it is 'cheesy'unrealistic and Halle Berry's character just says one-liners. OF COURSE THEY ARE GOING TO PUT THE ONE LINERS INTO THE TRAILER! They are not going to put the middle of an important conversation into it because nobody would know what the semg they were talking about! It's your decision to choose whether you like this movie or not, I will respect that, but I hate you synical pesimists that just sit there a slate every movie that comes along by writing on these message boards. Please dont ever go into journalism, because the first rule of a reviewer is that you have to actually see a movie first before you can review it.

    I wish James Bond would just die NOW...

    by CoolDan989

    This damn spy franchise is getting so old I wouldn't be surprised if Bond's next high tech gadget is a really big stone. Also, the time when James Bond crossed the line from being a trademark spy icon to just another typical 90s pretty face washed-up action icon was crossed a LONG TIME AGO. MGM, I don't care how much you need money, you just watch in horror as this one crashes at the box office like a fancy BMW without brakes and give this dying franchise up.

    This trailer is amazing!!

    by dieanotherday

    Bond Captured?, Betrayed? and Abandoned? ... this bond movie is going to be Brosnan's best yet. Lee Tomohori(sp?) and David Tattersal have done an amazing job. The action looks incredible. This trailer reminds me of the earlier (60's)larger scale, stylish bond movies. After mind-numbing, poorly produced crap like xxx ... bond is back to rescue us. Good to see you in fine form again Mr.Bond! Can't wait till Nov 22nd!

    Batman & Robin redux?

    by stitch@

    The new James Bond film reminds me of Batman & Robin, with MR Freeze and all the crappy ice effects and crappy dialogue and overall crappy feell & look. The ice hotel scene of waiters ice skating around is PAINFULLY CHEESY!

  • Oct. 3, 2002, 9:18 p.m. CST

    UET1AGENT, this one is for you.....

    by The Hitman

    You say that I criticize earlier James Bonds films. When it comes to Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan, you bet your ass I do!! Does that make me any less of a James Bond fan than you? Fuck no! I am a huge James Bond fan!! And what pisses me off about this is because I care about the seriousness of James Bond. I care about seeing the character that I loved in the books and in movies like "Dr. No" "From Russia With Love" "The Living Daylights", and "Licence To Kill". Now these films might not be to your liking and you might enjoy the cheesy "Batman & Robin" look to this film, but I flat out hate it!!! Will I go see this movie? Yeah, probably. Because I am a huge James Bond fan. But going in I cannot help but to be discouraged from what I saw in the trailer. Waiters on ice skates....jesus christ that's just sad.

    Trailer: good, song: bad.

    by Elliott Ness

    This has got to be the worst Bond theme yet - it sounds so dated already, like it was recorded in the early 90's. Normally, a Bond theme is very hummable and builds up to a nice climax, but this doesn't do anything. Also, it sounds overproduced, with the synthesized vocals and all, further reducing its impact. And why does Madonna sing like Betty Boop here? Overall, a major disappointment. On the other hand, the trailer is kinda nice, much better then the earlier teasers anyway. I find it very dynamic and even somewhat exciting, although I am not yet convinced that this will be a good Brosnan Bond. The big set pieces seem kinda boring, not really all that interesting. Surfing? Hovercrafting? Ice driving? Mwah. And the Ice Palace, as mentioned by others, is too strong a reminder of Batman & Robin. So we'll have to see whether this one will succeed, but I'm always willing to give 007 the benefit of the doubt. BTW does anyone else think that in some shots, Brosnan's age is starting to show?

    Complete indifference

    by sambrook

    ...and that's even worse than hating something. If this trailer had been so bad I loathed it, at least it would have hit me on some kind of emotional level. Most of this trailer was just shots from the previous, re-edited with added Q. Anyway, after The Two Towers trailer, no trailer will be as mind-blowing until Peter Jackson unleashes Return of the King. Die Another Day will do well enough financially, but it's hard to believe people will care much about it emotionally as they will about Two Towers. Damn Lord of the Rings for raising our expectations for all things film!

    Excited? I've gone through three pairs of pants today...

    by icycalm

    Oh me oh my, I haven't been this excited about all things Bond since the first teaser for Goldeneye. For those of you distraught over the dialogue, please remember what you're watching...a bond film....the one liners are meant to be flirtatious and walking the line of cringeworthy brilliance...every single last one of you who's moaned will be lining up like the rest of us come nov 22nd...christ, you bothered to download the trailer, what were you expecting Shakespeare? As for the song, hmmmm, like it as a catchy trancey dance track, as a bond theme....well, hardly goldfinger is it. Enough rambling...

  • Oct. 4, 2002, 10:52 a.m. CST

    icycalm...it's great that you're excited for this film..

    by The Hitman

    But, really the one liners in this film are certainly cringeworthy. None of the previous Brosnan Bonds had one liners that were as bad as this, nor was the dialogue as bad. I don't expect the best dialogue in the world, but I do ask that they at least take it seriously. It looks to me like this is all just a big joke to Halle Berry and she's giving a very "X-Men" performance. This trailer looked more like a big budget Batman movie than it did a James Bond movie. I don't expect brilliance, what I expect is a movie with at least the intelligence and realism that made the books and Daltons and Connerys earlier films so great. This trailer feels so much like a tribute to the Roger Moore Bonds it's scary. Changing the theme of Bond to this sort of techno rock tune is no different than the crappy rendition of the James Bond theme done by Bill Conti in "For Your Eyes Only". They really should bring back John Barry for the next film to bring class back to the Bond franchise as he easily did the best music. They should also consider hiring back John Glen to direct who definately direct the two best Bond films of the past 15 years, "The Living Daylights" and "Licence to Kill". And they should think about replacing Brosnan as Bond as he is just looking too old. Maybe they could get Jason Isaacs to play the role, someone who might take the part very seriously and not play him like a superman.

    The Hitman:

    by Tarl_Cabot

    Nice to know I'm not the only one on earth who liked Timothy Dalton and his two films! He was easily the best Bond since Connery- Connery was the original and he is still my favorite but I think Dalton was a more appropriate choice.Connery was great but look at his lazy performances in his last three and then read Ian Flemining-Dalton was Fleminig's Bond but in contemporary terms. He didn't try to charm the panties off of everyone and I liked that about him. He showed an anger and world weariness that Moore should have had at his age but was instead just sleepwalking through his films for an oversized paycheck. "The Living Daylights" was indeed the first real spy thriller since "From Russia with Love".It was a smart movie, maybe too smart to make lots of money. I liked Licence to Kill a lot too. It had flaws(Three's company chick?, score) but the action scenes are still the best in the series so far and the storyline was an interesting change-It was a personal revenge story. Imagine if they did another Dalton in '91 and '93? Have him stay a "Rogue agent" and find his own adventures while evading MI6? That could have been so kick ass! They missed a great opportunity...That was more dissapointing to me than The Phantom Menace!And after 6 years, the best they could do was "Goldeneye"? what a dud! This was supposed to be the savior film of the 007 series? It looks like a TV movie with a TV star in the lead role. That fall into the plane was so cheesy! Since when do Bond films need a computer to perform stunts? There's nothing memerable about that film-even "A view to a kill" had some moments; the song was great anyway. Pierce took himself way too seriously too. He's improved but he looks too old now to do Bond 21.Anyway,I can't wait for Die another Day! I hope it rocks!
