    As Die Another Day is the 20th James Bond film and it is also the 40th year anniversary of James Bond cinematic adventures it seems only fair that the film will feature several homages to past Bond adventures. So from CommanderBond.Net here is a list of all the known homages to date.

    If you'd like to discuss any of the homages please visit this thread of the Die Another Day Forums.

    Birds Of The West Indies
    Birds Of The West Indes is a book written by James Bond, it is the book where Ian Fleming took his characters name from. The official James Bond site has revealed that in 'Die Another Day' James Bond 007 will be seen with the book while in Cuba. Photos from filming in Cadiz, which will represent Cuba in the film, have indicated the book will feature in several scenes in the film.

    Duke of Wellington Portrait In Dr No
    When the Wellington Arch features in Die Another Day you can think back to the massive cavas portrain of the Duke Of Wellington that hangs in Dr No's lair (in real life the painting was stolen in 1960, to this day it hasn't been recovered) and was probably destroyed along with the lair. Yet another homage revealed by CommanderBond.Net!

    Goldfinger's Aston Martin DB5
    In a direct homage to the Aston Martin DB5 in 1964's Goldfinger the Aston Martin V12 Vanquish will feature an ejector seat. This homage was exclusively revealed by CommanderBond.Net in January '02. Further details could be considered a plot spoiler at this stage so they shant be listed here.

    Jinx's Bikini
    When Jinx emerges from the sea in Cuba she'll be in an orange bikini, however, it's no ordinary bikini. The bikini, designed by Lindy Hemming, is styled after the bikini worn by Usula Andress when she played Honey Ryder in the first cinematic Bond adventure Dr No. As a result, it's a direct homage.
