Skyfall is going to be a very tough act to follow, and I’m curious if director Sam Mendes is up to the task with Spectre. Sony has released nine new Spectre clips online along with the B-roll, and you can watch them if you still need to be sold on the upcoming sequel, which delves into James Bond’s (Daniel Craig) past as he receives a cryptic message from the evil organization known as SPECTRE and goes on a hunt that uncovers long-held secrets. Will an origin story work for Bond or was Skyfall an anomaly? I was so floored by Skyfall that I’m willing to give Mendes the benefit of the doubt.
But if you still need to be sold or if you just can’t wait to get a little bit more Bond in your life, check out the Spectre clips and B-roll below. The movie 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.
Spectre opens in IMAX and traditional theaters the UK on October 26th, and in the US on November 6th.
Here is a more detailed synopsis for Spectre:
A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as SPECTRE.
Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott), the new head of the Centre for National Security, questions Bond’s actions and challenges the relevance of MI6, led by M (Ralph Fiennes). Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) to help him seek out Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White (Jesper Christensen), who may hold the clue to untangling the web of SPECTRE. As the daughter of an assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot.
As Bond ventures towards the heart of SPECTRE, he learns of a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks, played by Christoph Waltz.
