"At least I shall have the pleasure of putting you out of my misery. Poor, desolate, Mr. Bond."
If you like a little Star Wars with your James Bond, then tonight's feature is for you. The eleventh movie in the Eon Productions series, Moonraker finds 007 (Roger Moore) tasked with investigating the hijacking of a space shuttle on loan to the United Kingdom. The trail leads Bond from Italy to Brazil, where he discovers that the manufacturer of the space shuttle, Drax Industries, is also fabricating a deadly new nerve gas that kills people, but spares animals. Joined by CIA operative Holly Goodhead (Lois Chiles), Bond stows away on a Moonraker space shuttle destined for Hugo Drax's (Michael Lonsdale) orbiting space station, where he must find a way to stop the madman from releasing the nerve gas into the atmosphere and killing every living soul on Earth.
From the lush rainforests of the Amazon to the cold desolation of space, tonight's feature is truly out of this world! Tune in tonight at 7:00pm ET/ 4:00pm PT for Moonraker and then check the ReelzChannel schedule because we're playing 007 movies all month long!
