Da-da-da-daa-da-da-da. Da-da, da-da-da. Yes, James Bond is back in only a few weeks, with his latest, “Spectre,” opening next month in Europe and elsewhere, before hitting the U.S. on November 6th. It’s moving quietly under the radar as people fuss over festivals and “Star Wars,” but we’re soon to see the marketing machine crank up — only this week, we saw it confirmed that Sam Smith will sing the theme song, and now, a new TV spot has arrived.
There isn’t a ton of new footage here, but it’s a concise blast of action that reminds us, now that the backlash is a distant memory, that Sam Mendes’ “Skyfall” was, for its flaws, easily one of the strongest 007 outings of the last few decades, and, if the follow-up is anywhere close to the same quality, “Spectre” could be the same.
Daniel Craig returns once again, this time delving into his family history as he battles a mysterious organization called Spectre and its leader, maybe-Blofeld (Christoph Waltz). Lea Seydoux, Monica Belucci, Dave Bautista, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Rory Kinnear, and Andrew Scott also star, and you’ll be able to catch it abroad on October 26th, or November 6th in the U.S. Watch the TV spot below, and check out a new poster and banners.
