Billion Dollar Bond

Yesterday Never Lies

Having met his marks in GoldenEye, Pierce Brosnan returned as James Bond in the 1997 film Tomorrow Never Dies. Bowing to some criticism that he was too slighter build, Brosnan purportedly gained 20 pounds to give himself a fuller face and a weightier presence.

Having established James Bondís place in a 1990s landscape the new film could spend more time being a grand slam action film. As such, Tomorrow Never Dies is perhaps the best Pierce Brosnan James Bond film because it is structured along classic Bond lines. There is a middle-aged villain (Jonathan Pryce), a souped-up car (BMW 750iL) and a race against time to stop a nefarious scheme to ferment a war between Britain and China.
