An "unofficial" 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, sister of the pilot who performed the operation (Creator/KimBasinger in her StarMakingRole). 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.

Plainly satirical scenes (such as Bond's discussion with M at the beginning) are side by side with normal Bond-style scenes, and a blatantly middle-aged Bond certainly doesn't help matters (though Moore was a few years older than Connery and starring in Octopussy at the same time, even he felt he was too old in the next Bond film, [[Film/AViewToAKill and he definitely looked too old]]).
