Earlier this year, we showed you the first photos from the opening action sequence of Spectre, which finds James Bond running through the streets of Mexico City during the Day of the Dead festival. Now, EON Production, MGM and Sony Pictures have released a new featurette that takes fans on set and behind-the-scenes of this elaborate opening. And it promises to be one of the all-time great first acts in any James Bond movie.
The 24th James Bond adventure kicks off with an epic chase through the streets of Mexico City, which was shot on location and utilized over 1500 extras. They served as the backdrop for a fateful meeting between Daniel Craig's 007 and Stephanie Sigman's Estrella. They meet amongst the loud, busy parade with its skeleton floats and other bigger-than-life decorations. The pair head to the Gran Hotel De La Ciudad De Mexico. There, Bond confronts two dangerous men and stops something 'really bad' from happening. It all culminates in a fight aboard a helicopter. But you'll have to wait until November to see all of the action unfold.
In Spectre, a cryptic message from Bond's past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. 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. Directed by the Academy Award winning Sam Mendes, the film also stars Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Christoph Waltz, Monica Bellucci, Dave Bautista, Léa Seydoux, Stephanie Sigman, Andrew Scott and Rory Kinnear. Take a look and prepare for epic action like you've never seen before:
