issue 50, volume 13, april 2019
For the 16th Bond adventure Michael G. Wilson took the lead in penning a darker, more brooding Bond story, borrowing only a smattering of Fleming source material and setting the story South of the border. Dalton, who firmly believed Bond wasn’t for children, welcomed the increased violence and danger. 30 years on the film reveals more than you might think about the future of Bond: as well as cranking up the violence, it set a 30-year tone for poster design, and showed Bond with a vested, personal interest in the mission.
This issue celebrates the film many look on as an 'outlier' of the series by dipping back into the press archives and hearing from its stars. We also learn how to explore New York like 007 and reveal a scrapped sequence from Die Another Day.
