We’re just a couple months away from a new James Bond film, and Sony has released a new Spectre video blog that goes into action scenes. Specifically, this video blog examines the reliance on practical effects that are a staple of the Bond franchise. Leave it to the superheroes and sci-fi for CG spectacle; when you need a crazy car chase, demolished buildings, or a helicopter doing a barrel roll, you get practical in a Bond film. That’s not to say there won’t be CG in the film, but it’s always nice to get a glimpse at how they’re tackling the practical side of the effects.
Check out the Spectre video blog below. The film opens in UK theaters on October 26th and US theaters on November 6th, and stars Daniel Craig as James Bond, 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:
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.
