The latest video blog for James Bond's Spectre has hit the web on 007.com. This time the video profiles the opening scene of Spectre being filmed in Mexico City. The opening takes place during the Day of the Dead, and thousands of extras were utilized to create the complete experience for the production. "I wanted the audience to be dropped right into the middle of a very, very specific, very heady, rich environment. It's the Day of the Dead, everywhere you look there's colour and detail and life. We've built floats and maquettes, the costumes are extraordinary and the craftsmanship is amazing," Sam Mendes said. Daniel Craig stars as Agent 007, but he's nowhere to be seen in this video blog. Stay tuned for more updates on Spectre soon.
Here's the fourth behind-the-scenes video for Sam Mendes' new Bond Spectre, filming now, via 007.com:
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.
