'The World Is Not Enough' presented the longest pre-title sequence ever in a Bond film. What seemed like a change from the original forumla was, however, well received by fans. Accordingly, it seems that the pre-title sequence of Bond 20 will be just as long, if not longer.
Thanks to our insider Brosnan's Hair CommanderBond.Net can now exclusively reveal details about the pre-title sequence that will feature in Bond 20. Understandably, there are major spoilers in this report. So you'll have to highlight it to read it. WebTV users, simply view our printer friendly version to read the report.
Bond 20 will begin with James Bond deep undercover investigating Colonel Moon of the North Korean Army. Colonel Moon is being investigated by MI6 due to fears he’s attempting to reunite North and South Korea through a war. As a part of the cover Bond is ‘working’ for Colonel Moon and at this time is on a training exercise with the other hench-men. This training exercise is a nighttime surfing exercise.
Despite his cover Colonel Moon’s main henchman Zao realises that Bond is a double-agent and a pursuit ensues. In a high cocktail of action Bond is chased from the sea and onto land, which is the demilitarised zone between North and South Korea. This is a reportedly a sandy area where Colonel Moon’s headquarters are located. The headquarters is protected by a mine field. In making an attempted escape from Zao and the other men Bond steals a hovercraft. He pilots the hovercraft over the mine field and around the coast of Korea.
Things seemingly couldn’t get much worse for 007. However, they do. In a different twist to the normal pre-title sequences Bond is surrounded by Colonel Moon’s men and captured. During the titles we’ll see him tortured quite brutally.
Bond 20 is shaping up to be one of the best Bond films yet. The opening sequence seems exactly what writers Purvis and Wade would create, something Pierce Brosnan would love and it meets with all the past rumours we’ve been hearing.
The surfing sequence has of course recently been filmed in Hawaii. The hovercraft sequence was first reported by CommanderBond.Net months ago. With this information bits of Bond 20 are slowly starting to fall together. Finally we know where some of the action sequences all fit together.
We'll have more news as it breaks. Until then, you can discuss this latest news in the Bond 20 Forums in this thread which was recently started about the news. Finally, a big thanks to Brosnan's Hair for the details!
