Here is the first look at the new James Bond film ‘SPECTRE’ currently scheduled for release on November 6th 2015. Following a tweet sent out from the official 007 twitter account on Wednesday evening, the behind the scenes footage and first look at Daniel Craig as Mr Bond were released at 7am on Thursday morning to the delight of fans across the world.
You can watch the 1.49 long video here:
Production for the 24th James Bond release started at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire in December 2014 along-side the new cast details being released to the public which revealed Oscar winner Christoph Waltz ( D’jango Unchained), Monica Belluci, Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy) Ralph Fiennes and Lea Seydoux (The Grand Budapest Hotel). At the launch of the film last December, it was confirmed that Christoph Waltz will have a role in the film, playing a character called Oberhauser, which is the same name as Bond’s former ski instructor.
Not a great deal is known about where the Sam Mendes films’ storyline is heading to but the synopsis on international movie site IMDB states: “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”. SPECTRE is, of course, the fictional global terrorist organisation featured in the James Bond novels by author and creator-Ian Fleming and has been a regular presence throughout the phenomenally successful MGM owned franchise.
During the event, Production Designer Dennis Gassner said the film company had searched through many countries to find the unique, modern facility ” “The thing Sam and I talked about was how we are going to top Skyfall…I think that we are going to continue the history of the Bond films, making things that are exciting for the audience to look at and what could be more exciting than to be on top of the world?”The newly released official behind the scenes footage shows Daniel Craig as the famous super slick British Spy amid the bright white backdrop of the Austrian Alps as production gets underway on the films action sequences and It also reveals a large, glass building high up in the mountain-SPECTRE HQ perhaps??
