As expected, Empire just shared some additional details on the latest Bond movie to go along with those Spectre covers. The outlet unveiled one still from the film and one behind-the-scenes shot. The still marks our very first look at Dave Bautista’s “henchpersonage,” Mr. Hinx. Here’s what Bautista had to say about taking the role:
“When I came over to meet Sam [Mendes], I only asked two questions. I asked him if Mr. Hinx was a badass. He said, ‘Yes, he’s a badass.’ I said, ‘Well, is Mr. Hinx intelligent?’ He said, ‘Very.’ That’s what I like about Mr. Hinx. He’s very well-dressed and very well-mannered. I’m not just here to fight people. He has a sense of humour. He definitely knows what a metaphor is.”
The behind-the-scenes shot features director Sam Mendes working with Lea Seydoux who’s playing the “mysterious” Dr. Madeleine Swann. Seydoux also offered up some thoughts on her role:
“I don’t consider myself a Bond girl. I think I’m not really the stereotyped Bond girl. I feel quite different. You can’t be like, ‘Oh, James.’ You have to find something else. She’s not a fighter, she’s a doctor. She fights in another way.”
You can check out both of those new Spectre images below. The film is due in theaters on November 6th and also stars Daniel Craig, Christoph Waltz, Monica Bellucci, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear, Andrew Scott and Ralph Fiennes.
Here is the official synopsis for 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.
