EON Productions, MGM and Sony Pictures have released four intriguing new photos that show off the new Bond girls in the latest 007 adventure Spectre. These arrive in anticipation of the second trailer, which promises to tease some never-before-seen action set pieces. This all-new footage arrives tonight at Midnight (PT). While we await this truly exciting reveal for moviegoers, we get a first look at Léa Seydoux who makes her debuted appearance in Spectre as Madeleine Swann.
Madeleine Swann is described as the doctor daughter of an assassin. She first meets James Bond at her Austrian clinic. It is there that they are immediately drawn to each other, giving this franchise one of the biggest romantic sparks in its long history. Though, their initial meeting is very abrupt, to say the least. The second new Bond girl is played by Monica Bellucci. Her Lucia Sciarra is the widow of a murdered mafioso, and she, too, has an immediate attraction to the secret agent who likes his Martinis shaken, not stirred. About the character, Monica Bellucci had this to say.
"She comes from a man's world, but when the attraction between them takes place and she realizes her feminine power on him, then she trusts him to save her."
The next Bond girl is a very familiar face. Naomie Harris is back as Eve Moneypenny, and her story arc is being carried over from Skyfall. The events of that last Bond adventure have the woman reassessing her profession and what she wants to do with the rest of her life. Spectre sets her on a new path. She plans to be supportive in an entirely different way. There will be a new maturity to the character, and she will become more grounded as a person.
The final new Bond girl is Stephanie Sigman, who plays Estrella. A ravishing beauty that we first meet on the streets of Mexico City during the Day of the Dead, nothing has been revealed about her personal history or what role she truly serves in the story. She doesn't even have an iconic Bond girl last name that we know of yet! The actress did reveal this about her character, though.
"She's a lot like me. We like to have fun and we're joyful people. I found her really easy to play and go with the flow and just be me."
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 action-thriller also stars Daniel Craig, Ben Whishaw, Ralph Fiennes, Christoph Waltz, Dave Bautista, Andrew Scott and Rory Kinnear. Take a look at the New Bond Girls, then hold on for the ride of your life later tonight, when the all-new trailer makes its spectacular debut. Spectre is in theaters and IMAX on November 6, 2015.
