The 007 movie marks the first time Pierce Brosnan was seen as the international spy. And although he had big shoes to fill – he was replacing Timothy Dalton – director Campbell was convinced he would become a great Bond. Fans had other ideas, however.
With Brosnan came the turn of the century. And with that came a number of big changes to the Bond franchise.
Brosnan not only revolutionized the Bond franchise with flashy special effects and a swanky new style, Campbell messed up some Bond traditions.
First, Campbell got rid of Bond’s iconic Aston Martin car and replaced it with a BMW. If that wasn’t enough, fans had issues with Bonds’ sometimes serious new outfits and handy gadgets.
Eventually, he was cornered by fans.
Campbell remembers promoting GoldenEye in 1995.
He said, “I was in New York with GoldenEye and got invited to one of those fan conventions. I was naive enough to think those people didn’t take this stuff seriously.”
He added, “And I got on stage and was amazed by the questions.”
Perhaps the most glaring change for die-hard fans was the complete cast change for Mr.
Of course, Brosnan quickly became a huge hit in the Bond fandom.
GoldenEye was critically acclaimed and grossed $356 million at the box office.
He went on to star in a total of four Bond films before retiring from the show.
Brosnan later recalled being “thrown to the curb” after “asking for more money” for a fifth Bond film.
Brosnan was quoted telling the story in the book “Some Kind of Hero: The Remarkable Story of the James Bond Films”.
He said: “I was in the Bahamas working on a movie called After the Sunset and my agents called me and said, ‘Negotiations have stopped. [Producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson] aren’t quite sure what they want to do. They’ll call you next Thursday.'”
Barbara and Michael called him back to say, “I’m so sorry…You were a great James Bond. Thank you so much.”
