Another day, another super rad SPECTRE trailer, and another reason for me to desperately wish that this movie was available for viewing.
The latest (and third by my count) look at the new Bond flick being helmed once again by the talented Sam Mendes looks like he will once again bring us a more personal Bond tale. Like he did with 2013's incredible Skyfall, only this time instead of introducing us to some classic Bond cast members like Moneypenny and Q, we get the big daddy of villains in the titular SPECTRE. Bond's most deadly enemies are this time being led by the excellent Christoph Waltz, who many speculate will be the classic leader of SPECTRE, Blofeld.
We’ve finally got a good look at SPECTRE, and there are all the usual Bond trappings — Q even presents 007 with a tricked-out car and hacking skills this time — but at the root of everything? Bond backstory.
Here’s the official synopsis from oo7.com:
A new trailer for SPECTRE, the 24th James Bond adventure, has been released today. 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 organization 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.
In case you haven't gleaned by now, I really need to see this movie. And since the wait till November will most certainly be agonizing otherwise, all I can offer for relief is:
