Trivia: Die Another Day
  • Actor Allusion
  • Aluminum Christmas Trees: The Ice Hotel.
  • California Doubling
    • Loads, including Hawaii and England for North Korea, and Spain for Cuba. Justified Trope since those are still Communist nations.
    • Despite fears that the ice would melt and force filming to be moved out of Iceland, the film crew managed to avert this and stick around for those scenes.
  • Franchise Killer: An unusual example, as money-wise it was at the time the most successful James Bond film by quite some distance. Its catastrophic critical reception, however, was arguably the sole reason why the Bond franchise was rebooted come the Daniel Craig era.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: The gene-splicing Mad Scientist would later be seen performing a similar role in Seasons 4 and 5 of Alias.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Since doing this film, Toby Stephens (Graves) has played Bond in two radio adaptations of the Fleming novels.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Though Toby Stevens was a successful actor before this, he's best-known nowadays for playing Mr. Rochester in the BBC remake of Jane Eyre. Interestingly, The first version had Timothy Dalton in that role.
  • Stock Footage: When the Americans launch a missile at Icarus, it is the exact same one used by the British Navy in Tomorrow Never Dies.
  • What Could Have Been: There was talks of doing a movie spinoff with Jinx, but this film's reception buried those plans very quickly.
