An "unofficial"[[note]]Not part of the [[LongRunner long-running]] EON Productions film series[[/note]] Film/JamesBond film released in 1983, starring Creator/SeanConnery and directed by Irvin Kershner (director of ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack''). It's a remake of ''Film/{{Thunderball}}'', with two nuclear warheads stolen by SPECTRE and used in a blackmail attempt against the nations of the world. Bond is sent to investigate the only lead, Domino Petachi (Creator/KimBasinger in her StarMakingRole), sister of the pilot who performed the operation. The filmmakers intentionally decided to have Connery play an aging James Bond -- though notably, Connery is actually ''younger'' than Creator/RogerMoore, who was still the current 007 in the official films at the time.

* DaChief: Bizarrely, M plays a strange British variation of this trope. Fortunately, the film acknowledges this M is explicitly not the same character as Bernard Lee's.
