Arrived today and I've been looking forward to this new release from CHC, it's the opening sequence of the James Bond film Die Another Day starring Pierce Brosnan as the super spy. An action packed opener as always with plenty of guns and explosions and the exciting hovercraft chase....A must for Bond fans.

A very nice print in scope and very good mono sound on acetate film stock with twin tracks so a stereo rerecord is on the cards for my print!! Well worth the wait and well done to CHC for another great effort to follow the openers to Living Daylights and Goldeneye. £75 available now but be quick as these won't be there long , Mark

I'm sure I read somewhere that the acetate stock had come to an end, so clearly it hasn't! Irrespective of that, many thanks for the review - where else can we read one the same day that a new release arrives!

We are oh so fortunate to have Classic and mine has also landed and due for Stereo. I would encourage anyone even just thinking of ordering this to get the order in as I know these are flying very fast indeed as with all the new releases just out. I’m sure I am not alone in congratulating Classic on its continued support of new Super 8 prints and some very unique items at that.

The film itself is action packed of course and spreads marvellously across the scope screen really showing off the format to the limit. With Classic still planning more releases there is no stopping Phil AKA Mr Super 8!

Well worth a stereo rerecord as it really lifts the film, I've shown this 5 times now and the audience cannot believe it's magnetic sound, Mark

I note CHC say it's 300 ft, so that should be around 15 mins, which sounds long even for a Bond pre-credits sequence. Does it end just before the opening credits would start?

Hi Adrian,
I think Phil is going by the gauge on the side of the reel. This is printed on very thick acetate and runs for about 11 minutes (if I remember correctly). It is the full pre-credit sequence and ends when Pierce Brosman swings on the bell and and drops on the ground and says "saved by the bell". You then have the mgm and 20th fox logos and the reel ends.

That comes out to about 125.00 USD. A bit pricy for me.

As someone said to me recently, it’s a better investment than leaving your money in the bank. Having watched it a number of times I think I’ve had my moneys worth already and brand new at that. [Cool]

Still holding out for "The Spy Who Loved Me" opening/credit sequence. I love the song and it is considered by many Bond fans to be the best opening credit scene of the Bond films. Very impressive.

James.

James who is doing that?

Pat I have timed the film from flash frame 3 to the last image on the reel and it runs for 13:38:69 at 24 frames per second on a GS1200 MK III. A retired projectionist friend tells me this is pretty much what the original promo reel consisted of prior to release.

Mines now in Stereo and the twin stripe is probably the best I have heard for years taking a very good stereo recording.

I do believe I read about it either here on this forum, or maybe Reel Image magazine, about a year ago. At the time there was no final decision to release it, but I think they (CHC or R.I.) have source material for it, but was waiting to see if it would be popular enough to sell. I don't know if they have decided to release it yet.

Just received my Die Another Day reel from Steve Osborne. Very fine job on printing. The colors pretty much match what I remember seeing in the theater and my dvd. Very sharp image. The usual cropping top and bottom of Scope Super 8 films was more than usually evident because of the subtitles used to translate the Korean sentences. The subtitles are there, but at the very bottom....a hair above the bottom frame line.

Sound: It comes with mono sound which was very well recorded...lots of volume and the fidelity was excellent. I intend to get it re-recorded in stereo, which should add a lot of value to it.

One nice extra .... You get a full Fox fanfare scope opening AND the MGM lion at the beginning, BUT also at the end...so you could use the fanfares at the end to splice on to other films that might not have them.

It's wonderful to see these new releases continue to be produced and with such excellent quality.

Hello all. I recently picked up this reel second hand. However my print feels very blue/green. The opening scenes also appear dark. I was wondering if anyone had a similar issue, or if it was just printed that way. If anyone has screenshots for comparison it would be much appreciated! Thanks!

Here are a few of my own screenshots. Excuse the poor iPhone quality, even though I feel the color looks better in these pictures versus what I am seeing on the screen.

Looking at the DVD vs. the print I have, the colors on that opening sequence are muted toward the bluish on both. I think they were trying to convey the starkness of North Korea ... But anyway, my print matches the cool color temp of the dvd I have.

Thank you for the information Gary! How about a few moments after the opening scene? My print feels more geen/blue than the Color on the YouTube segments I have watched.

Hi Evan you tend to find most prints are a bit like that these days.

Well certainly on the majoroity of trailers I`ve had.

A few bits from IB Tech sources seem to do better.

Best Mark.

I don't own this release but I've seen it at one or two conventions and I recall it looking very much like your screen shots, so I doubt whether other prints are significantly different. You would certainly find brighter colours if (e.g.) buying 'Captain America' or 'True Lies'.
