Tomorrow Never Dies
The Bond franchise is known for its extravagant gadgets from Q, so much so that 007 purists went ape when the MI6 gadgetry mastermind and other clichés were left out of the latest Bond movies
. But if history can teach us anything, maybe this was for the best. Case in point: Tomorrow Never Dies.
Pierce Brosnan was the tool for Ericsson's marketing in the 1997 Bond film. Rather than being a typical one-off, disposable gadget like those from prior films, the Ericsson phone just kept coming back to wreak as much havoc as possible. The phone in question doubled as a stun gun, fingerprint scanner and fingerprint mimicking device, lock pick and, last but not least, a remote control featuring a steering pad and front and rear view monitor for a fancy, rocket-equipped BMW.
Oh, wait! And a screwdriver!
