On November 22 2002, the twentieth James Bond film, Die Another Day, was released by MGM. Die Another Day was the fourth and last film to star Pierce Brosnan as James Bond.
Die Another Day was directed by Lee Tamahori. The film marks the James Bond franchise’s 40th anniversary. The series began in 1962 with Sean Connery.
The title song for Die Another Day was written and performed by Madonna, who also had a cameo in the film as Verity, a fencing instructor.

On November 21 1992, Madonna was named Most Popular International Solo Female Artist at the 2nd annual Australian Music Awards.
