* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Moore was considering stepping down from the role following ''Film/ForYourEyesOnly'', and EON were looking to recast, even toying with the idea of casting an American (James Brolin, who screen-tested three times) as Bond. However, when the rival "unofficial" film ''Film/NeverSayNeverAgain'' starring Creator/SeanConnery was announced to release around the same time as ''Octopussy'', EON decided to stick with Moore, feeling that pitting a new, untested Bond actor against a juggernaut like Connery would be a horrible move. It paid off, as while both films were successful, ''Octopussy'' beat ''NSNA'' at the box office.
