New Poster for Sam Mendes' 'Spectre' Inspired by Bond Art of Past
Live and Let Spectre. Eon Production has unveiled the latest official poster for Sam Mendes' Spectre, the latest James Bond, and the fourth Bond starring Daniel Craig as Agent 007. This time, Craig puts on a very daper white tuxedo standing with his pistol at the ready, in a classic James Bond pose front and center. To give this shot some context, they toss in that creepy skeleton guy in the background. My first thought is Live and Let Die, which is most likely the nostalgic connection they're going for. The result is a very eye-catching, appealing poster. And I can't wait to see the movie, too. I love the way they've been marketing this so far.
Spectre is directed by Sam Mendes (Skyfall, Revolutionary Road, Road to Perdition, American Beauty) and written by Neal Purvis & Robert Wave with John Logan, all with James Bond franchise experience. A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation, Spectre. 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. Daniel Craig returns as 007 along with Ralph Fiennes as the new M, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, and Ben Whishaw as Q. New cast members include Christoph Waltz, Monica Bellucci, Dave Bautista and Lea Seydoux. Sony Pictures will release Spectre in theaters on November 6th, 2015 this fall.
