  1. Details Description Of Footage Shown On Swiss TV

    It seems that everywhere bar Australia and the United Kingdom are being shown footage from Die Another Day, much to my disappointment. Tracy from Switzerland has just sent us in details of footage that was aired yesterday on Swiss Cinema Channel "Star TV".

    Yesterday night, Swiss Cinema Channel “Star TV” aired a three minute Making Of, showing footage of Spoiler Warning (Highlight To Read)the Hawaii Surfing sequence, including short interviews featuring the Surfing cracks and Michael G. Wilson (with a beard!), too. At the beginning there was the same scene of Pierce Brosnan walking towards a door with his gun ready and followed by the camera team, as reported from Brazil. So he was obviously not cleaning his gun, but getting up from his leather chair and walking through that door.

    The footage was spectacular, Spoiler Warning (Highlight To Read)showing the three surfers on absolutely stunning waves, with the yellow helicopter flying above and the camera team on some kind of water bike. You could also see excerpts from the storyboard and one of the surfers reporting that, due to the script, two of the surfers have to be kicked off their boards because of the waves. There were no further details on whether the scene really involves Bond.

    The report was underlayes by Backseat Driver and seemed to be official footage, as they were showing the Danjaq Copyright at the end and the Bond 20 logo from the official website as a close.

    Tracy has sent us in some great details there, and I'm really jealous that I haven't got scene this footage. Hopefully we'll be able to get our hands on it soon! Until then please discuss this news in this thread of the Die Another Day Forums. See you there!
