1. What ET Showed From Pinewood Studios

    By daniel on 2002-04-26

    I've just seen the ET Footage from the set of Die Another Day at Pinewood Studio's. The first thing I have to mention is the interior set for the Ice Palace and the exterior set for the Ice Palace. Both are absolutely amazing.

    The exterior set has been built on the Pinewood Backlot, with the Ice Palace on the 007 Stage. One really can't describe how amazing the set does look, it's beyond words.

    There was a brief glimpse of dialogue in the report.

    Bond: “Shall we? You’re not Jinx anymore?”

    Jinx: “Oh, I’ll always be a Jinx to you.”

    The dialogue seemingly hints that, while at the Ice Palace, Spoiler Warning (Highlight To Read) Jinx will use cover-name while she’s at the Ice Palace. Also shown was a very small clip of Jinx turning to her left and saying "James". It's hard to describe Spoiler Warning (Highlight To Read) but it’s obvious that Jinx and Bond don’t arrive at the Ice Palace together. Jinx seems semi-surprised, semi-“I expected you to be here”.

    An interesting note to fans, after delivering her "Jinx to you…" line Berry actually tripped and was caught by Brosnan, who said "I got ya, I got ya". Seems Berry is actually jinxing herself!

    Two outfits worn by Jinx were shown, already seen on CommanderBond.Net. However, it was revealed that Jinx's dress at the Ice Palace party was designed by Donatella Versace. Also shown was Jinx's car. A Ford Thunderbird, CommanderBond.Net was the first to reveal she would be driving that car, that is a special edition with a unique body paint.

    On to bigger news, the reported confirmed that reports Madonna would not have a cameo appearance in Die Another Day are false. Madonna will appear in the film. Director Lee Tamahori revealed she'd be filming her scenes over two days. The scenes will include Madonna in a specially designed outfit.

    Strangely, the footage with Rosamund Pike was missing from the special which was really disappointing.
