Spectre Trailer Takes James Bond to Mexico City and Rome, Introduces New Bond Girls—Watch the Video Now!.

Indeed he is. Starring Daniel Craig and directed by Sam Mendes, the trailer for Spectre shows our protagonist doing what he does best: getting into fantastic car chases, decoding secrets and surrounding himself with gorgeous women (Lea Seydoux and Monica Bellucci play Madeline Swann and Lucia Sciarra, respectively.) The trailer sprints from long, overhead shots of London, Mexico, Italy and Morocco to close up shots of each of the characters — capturing the glitzy, mysterious nature of Bond movies.The 24th film in the Bond franchise, “Spectre” co-stars Christoph Waltz as the villainous Franz Oberhauser, Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny and Ben Whishaw as Q.The rumours have been flying ever since producers revealed the title of the new Bond movie to be Spectre, once an acronym for Ian Fleming’s nefarious Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion.

Daniel Craig’s James Bond returns at the end of the year in the follow-up to the highly successful Skyfall – the highest grossing James Bond film ever. A cryptic message from the past sends Bond on a rogue mission to Mexico City and later Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci), the widow of an infamous criminal. Because a two-and-a-half minute James Bond trailer without 007 doing Bond-ian things – pointing a gun, driving a shiny new Aston Martin, popping up in various exotic locations – would be kind of weird. The Skyfall follow-up and 25th Bond film overall is titled Spectre and judging by this new trailer, returning director Sam Mendes will once again take the British spy on a personal journey. But there is one face that emerges in the brand-new “Spectre” trailer that is more important than Daniel Craig‘s rugged visage: Christoph Waltz finally steps out of the literal shadow to reveal himself as the franchise’s latest villain.

Actor Andrew Scott — who already has top villain credentials as the nerfarious Moriarty of the BBC’s Sherlock Holmes series — also puts in a mysterious cameo in a rooftop fight against M. Meanwhile, back in London, the new head of the Centre for National Security—Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott)—questions Bond’s recent actions and challenges the relevance of MI6, led by M (Ralph Fiennes). “You have no authority.

What were you doing there?” In his cheeky fashion, the agent says, “I was taking some overdue holiday.” Bond secretly enlists Moneypenny and Q (Ben Whishaw) to help him locate Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), the daughter of his old enemy, Mr. The trailer offers a quick glance at what is expected to be Spectre’s opening scene, with 007 wading through the crowds incognito in a skull-like mask, then shifting to assassin mode with a sniper’s rifle opposite his target’s window. The brooding and sombre Skyfall scored a few points for post-modern playfulness via its introductory scene for the new Q, in which Ben Whishaw might as well have offered Bond a couple of Netflix vouchers and a year’s subscription to Cosmopolitan for all the wow factor his proffered “gadgets” achieved. But they also left audiences wondering quite why producers had bothered to introduce this bumbling new take on the MI6 quartermaster (who also inadvertently let Raoul Silva in to embark on his rampage through the corridors of power, lest we forget). So it’s comforting to note that Spectre seems to be offering a significant upgrade: the trailer shows Q introducing Bond to his new ultra-speedy Aston Martin DB10, and promising it boasts a “few tricks”.

One of these appears to involve a sort-of flame-fuelled turbo button, if snatches of a car chase along the famous Ponte Sisto bridge in Rome are anything to go by. As Bond aficionados will be well aware, White’s job is to turn up every now and then to offer up cackling portents of impending doom regarding terrifying nefarious organisations that 007 and his pals appear to know nothing about. Given he’s as inscrutable as ever, it looks like the suave spy decides to go after White’s family members in an effort to find out more about the mysterious Spectre and its leaders. Paparazzi shots of Waltz wearing mo-cap dots on his face sparked speculation the Bond baddie might boast hideous Blofeld-like scars in Mendes’ film.

But the new trailer shows the two-time Oscar-winner emerging from the shadows for the first time after 007 tracks him down to an eery Vatican council of Illuminati-like figures. Bond movies used to be relatively self-contained affairs, particularly after production company Eon lost the rights to use Spectre, Fleming’s most famous evil organisation, in its films. If Oberhauser really is the author of all 007’s pain, does that mean that Spectre and Quantum of Solace’s Quantum organisation (which White also seemed to know all about) are one and the same?

Will we be treated to a flashback scene in which it turns out Waltz was bankrolling Le Chiffre in Casino Royale and sponsoring Silva’s destructive attacks in Skyfall? There’s a theory, sparked by the half-burned photograph which 007 is seen looking at in an earlier trailer, that Bond and Oberhauser grew up together, so perhaps Waltz is simply referencing his childhood habit of doling out debilitating chinese burns. From snatches of the theme to On Her Majesty’s Secret Service in the score, to the Day of the Dead chase sequence’s close resemblance to the Mardi-Gras scene in 1965’s Thunderball, to the Bond-goes-rogue with help from Q storyline (half-inched from 1989’s Licence to Kill), the nods to 007’s past come thick and fast.

The Austrian mountaintop clinic where Bond meets Swann even recalls a similar alpine medical retreat in OHMSS, and then there’s Oberhauser’s Dr No-influenced Nehru jacket.
