“It’s all a matter of perspective.”
The final trailer for the latest installment in the James Bond franchise, Spectre, was dropped on Friday and it looks like this film may have the chops to keep up with the previous entry, Skyfall. Sam Mendes returns as the director with Daniel Craig back as Bond. It also stars Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Andrew Scott, Dave Bautista, Lea Seydoux, Monica Bellucci, and Christoph Waltz.
The official synopsis is as follows:
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.
This didn’t add too much to what has previously been shown other than the fact that you should still be very excited for this entry. Skyfall is going to be tough to top, but it seems like Mendes and his crew have brought a lot of intensity, class, and style that made that movie so entertaining back for this one.
It’ll be interesting to see if the film is better or worse than its theme song, which was released last week by singer Sam Smith. The song, Writing’s On The Wall, has seen mixed reviews so far.
Spectre opens on November 6.
