- The number plate on Bond's BMW was "B-MT 2144", which is very close to the "BMT 214A" of Bond's Aston Martin DB5 from Goldfinger.
- A lot of gadgetry was included in Tomorrow Never Dies, because the prior film, Goldeneye, hadn't had many.
- The character Bill Tanner was meant to return for Tomorrow Never Dies, but actor Michael Kitchen was unavailable. He did however return for several later films.
- Supposedly, the original working title was Tomorrow Never Lies, a reference to the fact that Elliot Carver caused tragic events for the news
, and so knew them accurately in advance. As the story goes, a typo in one of the drafts was made, and Tomorrow Never Dies was considered a better title.
- The film was dedicated to the memory of Cubby Broccoli, the producer who started the series in 1962 with Harry Saltzman.
- 15 BMW's were destroyed during the production of the film.
