Spectre trailer

Here’s the first Spectre trailer! Daniel Craig returns to play James Bond a fourth time, and behind the camera is Sam Mendes, who returns as director after Skyfall. But most important may be the return of SPECTRE, the villainous organization which has menaced Bond in the past in the pages of Ian Fleming’s novels, and on the big screen.

There are hints of Bond’s personal past here, and the specific instance of this reveal is going to surprise you.

Update: We’ve also got some new images from the Spectre shoot in Mexico City, which is going on right now.

No, he’ll be coming at us on the biggest screens in the world this fall, as Spectre gets an IMAX release. Get the details on the Spectre IMAX rollout after the jump.  Read More »

Spectre teaser poster

Here’s the first real Spectre teaser poster, featuring Daniel Craig as James Bond in a real “ready to go” sort of pose. It doesn’t give us much to go on, except perhaps to suggest that James Bond is a big fan of Archer. His turtleneck (sorry, tactleneck!) game is definitely solid. Or maybe he’s just channeling Roger Moore from Live and Let Die. Check out the poster below, and look out for the trailer debut on March 28. Read More »

Spectre video blog

Following up the new images released earlier today, here’s a new Spectre video blog in which director Sam Mendes explains a lot about what’s going on with James Bond in this 24th film in the (official) series… without actually explaining much at all. But did you think he was just going to lay out the entire plot now, months before the film hits theaters? Not likely. But he does drop a few hints, so check out the video below. Read More »

The first Spectre footage is now online — that is, the first behind the scenes video from the film itself, instead of just posed photos of the actors on location. It only teases Daniel Craig, who is returning as James Bond, instead focusing mostly on the behind the scenes crew. There is a brand new photo of 007 though, which is teased above.

Sam Mendes directs the follow-up to Skyfall, which opens in November. Watch the Spectre footage and see the first image below. Read More »
