Will we ever see the uncut Die Another Day in the US

In the audio commentary for the film, Michael Wilson said that there was a slightly different cut of the film released. It had a steamier sex scene between Bond and Jinx.

America is so prudish.

If you want to see Halle naked, just get monster's ball (unrated is better) or swordfish since we aren't gonna get it.

What exactly is taken out other then a few seconds of "steamier sex scene" Remember, this is a bond film, they still wont show anything really worth an extra version worth.

Oh...I didn't think it would be explicit. As a huge Bond fan, it just frustrates me that people are seeing a better version of the film elsewhere...

Just like people traded in their OHSS DVDs cause a line was removed in the transfer.

I thought I remember reading somewhere before Die Another Day came out in theaters that this would've been the first Bond with a nude scene. Am I wrong?

I'm confused.. How does a few seconds of sex make a movie better?

Civ: They were originally thinking about having halle come out of the water in her intro scene topless i forget the exact reason for them not doing it probably $$$ or the fact they didn't want to mess with the forumula.

I've seen tits in Bond before. I can't remember where, but I have.

As for the few seconds being different elsewhere and how this effects the movie... I'm sure it doesn't. But the fact it had to be done, and as a result, we have this different version... well, that's just annoying.

I don't like the movie either way, so *shrug*

You're thinking of the Living Daylights which, I believe had a PG-13 rating because you see Pushkin's wife/girlfriend topless from the side.

I don't think an explicit sex scene is necessary for a Bond film and am glad it was left out.

Add me to the "Who cares?" crowd. If I want to see explicit sex, I'll rent a porno or watch Brown Bunny.

Rewind says all the versions are the same except R2 have an extra featurette, "From Script To Screen". Are they wrong about cuts?

You can put me in the "who cares" crowd, as well.

From what I can tell, the sex scene was cut by a few seconds to secure a PG-13 in the United States, and it appears that all international release versions of the movie reflect this same cut.

I don't believe anyone got to see a steamier version of the scene.

Someone else mentioned Living Daylights, but there were two other instances of actual topless nudity flashed on camera that I can remember. One was when Sean Connery pulls a woman's bikini top off to wrap around her neck in a threatening manner (I believe this was in Diamonds Are Forever, though I might be mistaken); for a brief moment before the camera pans up, you can see her topless. Not sure if this is visible in a matted widescreen version though, since I only saw it on VHS. And in The World Is Not Enough, Sophie Marceau's breasts are clearly visible for a couple split-seconds; this I noticed in the theater, so it wouldn't be a matting issue.

So the thread title should read: "Will we ever see the uncut Die Another Day?"

The Living Daylights is Rated PG not PG-13. But yes it does have partial nudity.

The only Bond films to be shot in a matted widescreen process were Dr. No, From Russia With Love, Goldfinger, Live and Let Die, and The Man With the Golden Gun.

Since Thunderball almost all Bond films have been shot in Panavision anamorphic widescreen, except LaLD and TMWGG.

Thanks for the correction. Living Daylights was PG and not PG-13. I guess I recalled that incorrectly. I never noticed that all the Bond movies since have been PG-13.

pixyboi - A few seconds isn't going to make the movie considerably or even measurably better - but it will make it complete.

Hey, I like sex scenes as much as the other guy but I thought it was really out of place in a Bond film.
That sort of thing is usually left to the imagination. I don't need to see Pierce Brosnan as Bond grunting like a frat boy. You're supposed to think he is the world's greatest lover instead of a man just released from prison (which he was).
If anything, they should have cut the entire scene.
But thats just me.

I can't think of a sex scene so explicit in any other Bond.
