Trailer Time: SPECTRE Teaser #1 (2015) *Bond is Back, Baby!*

Oh.  Please.  Let.  It.  Be  November.  Now!(with me somehow having seen I along the way).  The first trailer for the 24th outing of the world’s best spy, James Bond, debuts and it promises A LOT.  Spectre, has traditionally been an evil organization plaguing MI-6 and their head, Hans Blofeld (Christoph Waltz), is one of the immortal Bond villains.  They’re getting a reboot in a big way, and Mendes in his second consecutive Bond film is continuing what has made Daniel Craig’s reign as Bond the best in the series: he’s made an actual character out of him.  Previous Bond movies were all pretty much one-shot episodes with everything reset and no consequences, but from Casino Royale, Craig has been building a Bond that’s very much evolving, very much haunted by and running from his past, and now it looks like something from Skyfall has ripped open some of James’ most private wounds.  Aside from Episode VII and Age of Ultron there is no movie I want to see more this year than Spectre, and I will be there when it opens on November 6, 2015.

One thought on “Trailer Time: SPECTRE Teaser #1 (2015) *Bond is Back, Baby!*”

  1. You’re right, Craig is the best Bond, and Skyfall is my favorite Bond film. But this new one cost 350 million, and that’s a lot to spend on a James Bond movie. Casino Royale was scaled-back, and Skyfall did not seem overproduced. But in-between, Quantum of Solace was a generic, overproduced action movie with a lot of explosions.

    I never thought a Bond film would be the most expensive film of all time, and I would be lying if I said it didn’t give me pause. From Russia With Love is so much better than Goldfinger. But hey, Mendes is back, and I don’t want this rebooted franchise to get cut short. Idris Elba is a foregone conclusion, waiting in the wings, because there will always be another Bond. But I want to see more of Craig first.
