The World is Not Enough (1999) Trailer B
A second trailer for The World is Not Enough.
Greed, revenge, world dominance, high-tech terrorism - it's all in a day's work for James Bond, who races to defuse an international power struggle with the world's oil supply hanging in the balance in The World is Not Enough, the 19th installment in the longest-running and most successful film franchise in cinema history.
From the banks of the Nervion River in Bilbao, Spain, to a spectacular high-speed boat chase up London's River Thames and through the highlands of Scotland, James Bond (Pierce Brosnan, in his third appearance in the role of the world's best-known secret agent) barely survives a potential nuclear explosion in a vast oil pipeline in Turkey - all in the name of protecting beautiful oil heiress Elektra King (Sophie Marceau) from notorious international terrorist Renard (Robert Carlyle). With nuclear weapons expert Dr. Christmas Jones (Denise Richards) at his side, Bond travels to Azerbaijan, the Caspian Sea and Istanbul. There, a former enemy (Robbie Coltrane) becomes a formidable ally before the final dramatic showdown in the claustrophobic confines of a nuclear submarine beneath the surface of the Bosphorus Sea.
The World is Not Enough is an exhilarating adventure that takes all of the compelling elements expected of the Bond series and sets them against the background of a contemporary crisis on the cutting edge of today's news. Clearly, James Bond - Agent 007 - is back.
The World is Not Enough also stars Desmond Llewelyn, who returns as weapons and gadget wizard Q, as well as Dame Judi Dench as M and Samantha Bond as Moneypenny. Robbie Coltrane reprises the character of double agent Valentin Zukovsky. The film also features John Cleese (A Fish Called Wanda) as Q's assistant, Serena Scott Thomas (Diana: Her True Story) as Dr. Holly Warmflash, who ministers to Bond, Maria Grazia Cucinotta (Il Postino) as Cigar Girl and music artist Goldie as Bull, Zukovsky's chauffeur.
A key element in the extraordinary success of the Bond series was the casting of Pierce Brosnan as Agent 007, first in 1995 in GoldenEye and again in 1997's Tomorrow Never Dies.
Dame Judi Dench, an Academy Award winner for Shakespeare in Love and a Tony Award winner this past season in the Broadway production of "Amy's View," plays M for the third time.
Desmond Llewelyn plays Q for the 17th time in The World is Not Enough, while Samantha Bond makes her third appearance as M's able assistant, Miss Moneypenny. And character actor Robbie Coltrane has the distinction of being one of the few Bond villains to return to the series, having first played sinister double agent Valentin Zukovsky in GoldenEye in 1995. An imposing ensemble of actors make their Bond movie debuts in The World is Not Enough.
Sophie Marceau (Braveheart) plays Elektra King, the daughter of a murdered oil tycoon whom Bond is assigned to protect.
British actor Robert Carlyle, perhaps best known for his starring role in The Full Monty, was cast as international terrorist Renard, a ruthlessly vicious villain - with a bullet lodged in his brain which makes it impossible for him to feel pain.
