Film: Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)
Location: Portsmouth Naval Base

Pearce Brosnan filming Tomorrow Never Dies
With James Bond being a Royal Navy Commander, 007's appearance at Portsmouth dockyard was only a matter of time. A deal was struck with the Royal Navy to film much of Tomorrow Never Dies aboard HMS Westminster. The bridge was blackened out so it looked as though it was night time in the South China Sea and some members of the crew were brought in to act as extras in the movie.
