Last night, EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Sony Pictures debuted a new 60-second TV spot for their upcoming James Bond movie, Spectre.
Ahead of the film’s release later this year, the clip provides enough footage to keep anticipation high.
Viewers are given a quick look at some familiar elements; Ben Whishaw’s returning Q appears to be caught in a computer meltdown, while we also get to see the context of 007 uttering his famous, “Bond, James Bond” line. Such character-driven shots are interspersed with fast-paced clips to that classic score, which promises big things for the
film’s action sequences.
Particular excitement surrounds the snow scenes filmed in the Austrian Alps – orchestrated by the fresh and upcoming cinematographer, Hoyte Van Hoytema, who has also recently worked on Her and Interstellar.
Of course, the clip has some new snippets too. The film’s two leading ladies – Dr Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux) and Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci) – both appear to possess Bond’s attentions, suggesting that Spectre will offer a potential departure from the relatively romance-free films that have constituted Craig’s previous outings in the role. Dave Bautista’s Mr Hinx also briefly features. The villain of the film, played by Christoph Waltz, remains shrouded in mystery, though if recent reports are to be believed, some interesting CGI work may be involved in his character.
According to the official plot synopsis, the film follows Bond after he receives a cryptic message from his past, sending him on the trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M (Ralph Fiennes) battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond must peel back the layers of deceit and reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE; the SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion.
Spectre will be released on 6th November.
