Sony has just debuted a new TV spot for the 24th James Bond film, Spectre, starring Daniel Craig, during tonight’s NBA Finals game. In the upcoming movie, Bond is on the trail on the sinister SPECTRE, (SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion) which is also wrapped up in the story of Bond’s past, and his childhood guardian.
It certainly looks like director Sam Mendes is upping the ante in the action department after Skyfall, and I’m eager to get a look at the snow-set sequence as shot by cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema. This TV spot also reveals the context in which Craig says his “Bond, James Bond” line, so there’s that. As a massive fan of Skyfall, I remain incredibly excited for Spectre and I just hope that Mendes and Co. are able to deliver a worthy follow-up.
Check out the Spectre TV spot below, click here to see some recent images from the Mexico City set, and click here for a full description of the opening chase sequence from Steve’s set visit coverage. The film opens November 6th and also stars Ben Whishaw as Q, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, Ralph Fiennes as M, Christoph Waltz as Oberhauser, Monica Bellucci as Lucia Sciarra, David Bautista as Mr. Hinx, Léa Seydoux as Madeleine Swann and Stephanie Sigman as Estrella.
Here’s the official synopsis for Spectre:
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.
