Explosions, romance and a globe-trotting adventure: it can only be the extended TV spot for Sam Mendes’ hotly-anticipated spy thriller, Spectre, which also includes our first look at Monica Bellucci’s femme fatale.
Debuting during last night’s NBA finals, the latest snippet for Sony’s upcoming actioner may open in a similar fashion to the first teaser, but soon after Christoph Waltz’s devious dialogue wraps up, we’re treated to a bevy of new footage that includes action and romance in equal measure. This is Ian Fleming’s super-spy, after all.
Since the Oscar-winner was cast late last year as the film’s overarching villain, Waltz has been busy fending off rumors attributing him to the role of Ernst Stavro Blofeld, head of the titular organization and sworn enemy to our 00 agent. One glance at the cast list or synopsis will reveal that Waltz is on board to play one Franz Oberhauser, though don’t be too surprised if it turns out that he is in fact portraying Blofeld in the final cut. Stephanie Sigman, Andrew Scott, and Rory Kinnear complete the star-studded ensemble.
Spectre will mark Sam Mendes’ second consecutive stint at the helm of the Bond series following the hugely successful Skyfall. We’ll know if the acclaimed director can emulate such success when Bond 24 arrives in theaters on November 6.
In Spectre, a cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. 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. Sam Mendes returns to direct SPECTRE, with Daniel Craig reprising his role as 007 for the fourth time. SPECTRE is produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, from a script by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade.
