Moonraker (1979) Official Trailer



Esta película la ví con mi amigo Henri a fines de verano del '79, poco antes de él y yo empezar nuestro séptimo grado, en el ya extinto teatro UA Cinema 150 en Carolina. La película no fue más que un burdo intento de los creadores de Bond de sacarle partido a la fiebre de Star Wars.

Moonraker (1979) is the eleventh spy film in the James Bond series, and the fourth to star Roger Mooreas the fictional MI6 agent James Bond. The third and final film in the series to be directed by Lewis Gilbert, it co-stars Lois ChilesMichael LonsdaleCorinne Cléry, and Richard Kiel. Bond investigates the theft of aspace shuttle, leading him to Hugo Drax, the owner of the shuttle's manufacturing firm. Along with space scientist Dr. Holly Goodhead, Bond follows the trail from California to Venice, Rio de Janeiro, and theAmazon rainforest, and finally into outer space to prevent a plot to wipe out the world population and to re-create humanity with a master race.
Moonraker was intended by its creator Ian Fleming to become a film even before he completed the novelin 1954, since he based it on a screenplay manuscript he had written even earlier. The film's producers had originally intended to film For Your Eyes Only, but instead chose this title due to the rise of the science fiction genre in the wake of the Star Wars phenomenon. Budgetary issues caused the film to be primarily shot in France, with locations also in Italy, Brazil, Guatemala and the United States. The soundstages ofPinewood Studios in England, traditionally used for the series, were only used by the special effects team.
Moonraker was noted for its high production cost of $34 million,[2] spending almost twice as much money as predecessor The Spy Who Loved Me, and it received very mixed reviews. However, the film's visuals were praised, with Derek Meddings being nominated for the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects, and the film eventually became the highest grossing film of the series with $210,300,000 worldwide,[2] a record that stood until 1995's GoldenEye.
