Moonraker took James Bond beyond the stratosphere into space, breaking the all-time box office record for a Bond film. The $30 million dollar production cost almost as much as to make as the first 8 films combined. With a set which is truly "out of this world" and extraordinary stunts, Bond keeps up with the galactic trend begun by the Star Wars films. Producer Albert R. Broccoli claimed, however, that Moonraker was not science fiction but science fact. Two consultants from NASA were hired for the duration of the filming to ensure the authenticity of all aspects of the film.
Arch-nemesis Jaws returns to face Bond along with some other nasty heavies and a bevy of beauties in Roger Moore's fourth Bond appearence. A return too from Shirley Bassey who follows up the title song from Goldfinger with the song here.
