    Great news for Bond fans and for the promotion of Die Another Day with a special Vanity Fair issue to be dedicated to the film. The September issue of Vanity Fair will hit stands on August 13.

    US based news program Entertainment Tonight have promised a sneak peak of the photos on tonights program. Thus far, they've told us;

    Inside Vanity Fair, we get a glimpse of what it takes to make a 007 extravaganza. New Zealand director LEE TAMAHORI ('Along Came a Spider') promises to shake, but not stir, the Bond formula in 'Die Another Day,' while holding onto many of the tried-and-true elements that make the 40-year-old series a success.

    "I'll be very disappointed if it turns out the same old Bond," he tells the magazine.

    In fact, Tamahori was so intent on pushing the envelope that he put Bond in the middle of a steamy love scene, daring the censors to leave it in.

    "In lovemaking, Bond's PG requirements have traditionally meant you can only show post-coital sex," he says. "You know, clothes strewn around the room, the camera slowly pans over to the bed… But we thought, why couldn't Bond have the best lay of his life? So we shot a very hot love scene. Whether it survives the censor's cut — or the producers — we'll see."

    It promises to be a great issue! You can be sure that you'll get more details from CommanderBond.Net as they come to light!
