  Brosnan to play Bond for a fifth time

The Royal Albert Hall hosts the premiere tonight

If James Bond is ever to die it will have to wait for another day, after Pierce Brosnan said he would be back for a fifth film.

Brosnan said he was asked to play the British super spy again before work even started on Die Another Day which gets its premiere on Monday.

The film is the 20th in the long-running series, which has been delighting audiences for 40 years.

But the new film has been hit by complaints before it opens on Thursday.

Anti-smoking campaigners are annoyed - in one scene Bond smokes a cigar, while others think there are too many clever adverts in the film.

The problem is something called product placement, where a company pays the filmmakers loads of money to have a character use their product in the film.

For Die Another Day, 20 companies have spent 44m between them to have things like expensive cars, phones and watches be used in the film.
