I love Bond. I’ve lived and breathed the series since I was young, it’s something my dad and I shared, so it holds a really special place in my heart. So anytime a new Bond film comes out, I can’t wait to see it, because it’s an event for me. Following Sam Mendes’ Skyfall, the series had new, but familiar, life injected into it, and I’ve been eagerly anticipating what’s to come. Would it continue on its return to classic Bond roots, or would it forge ahead in a new direction? When the titled for the film was announced, I had my answer.
Spectre is shaping up to be one of the biggest crown jewels in the Bond series pantheon, and with every bit of news, footage, and photos we see from it, the film keeps looking better and better. This new trailer for the film is no exception, and in fact, has made my excitement go up almost ten fold. Spectre looks to live up to the promises of going back to a very classic style Bond, as we saw at the end of Skyfall, while still being firmly rooted in what Daniel Craig’s version of the character has been known to be since Casino Royale.
All the series’ trademarks are here, with the guns, girls, and cars all rightfully in place. All this, plus the charismatic villain in Christoph Waltz haunting Bond behind the scenes, and his Henchman, Mr. Jinx, beating Bond up at every turn, feels like classic Bond that many grew up on.
Check out the trailer for Spectre below.
Directed by Sam Mendes, and starring Daniel Craig, Christoph Waltz, Monica Bellucci, Naomi Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Léa Seydoux, Stephanie Sigman, Andrew Scott, and Dave Bautista, Spectre opens in the UK on October 26, 2015, and in the US on November 6, 2015.
In SPECTRE, a cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE. Sam Mendes returns to direct SPECTRE, with Daniel Craig reprising his role as 007 for the fourth time. SPECTRE is produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, from a script by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade.
