/james-bond-spectre-trailer/Shortly after the first trailer debuted, a number of various sites reported back from the set of the latest James Bond adventure Spectre. They gave a detailed account of the opening action scene, which takes place in Mexico City's Plaza de la Constitución during Day of the Dead. A number of new production photos were released as well, featuring both Daniel Craig in his return as 007 and Stephanie Sigman in her Day of the Dead disguise. From the sounds of it, Spectre will kick things off with one heck of a chase sequence.
The scene in question is taking nearly ten days to shoot, and will utilize more than 1500 extras all decked out in Day of the Dead make-up. The scene features James Bond meeting Estrella (Stephanie Sigman) in the crowded streets surrounded by giant Skeleton floats and other larger-than-life decorations. They hurry to make their way through the massive parade, arriving at the Gran Hotel De La Ciudad De Mexico, where Estrella believes she is about to be seduced. Bond has other things on his mind, though, as he stares out the hotel window, fixated on two men having a conversation. The rest of the scene is not explained in detail, but Bond 'stops something really bad from happening'. He kills one man and gives chase on the other. They eventually both find themselves hanging from a helicopter. It is said that the stunt pilot, Chuck Aaron, is the only man in the world insured to do 360 degree flips in his helicopter, so we're likely to see that play out on the big screen.
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. Sam Mendes returns to direct Spectre, with Daniel Craig reprising his role as 007 for the fourth time. Spectre is produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, from a script by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade.You can see some of the Day of the Dead action taking place in the just released new photos as well. We also have the trailer for you again, in case you missed it yesterday.
