‘Spectre’ trailer delves into Bond’s murky past

By Armando

The long-awaited first trailer for Spectre premiered Friday night. Spectre is the 24th instalment of the Bond franchise which has been shrouded in secrecy throughout its production.

The trailer picks up right where “Skyfall” left off and seem to delve deeper into Bond’s past. Sam Mendes, who helmed Skyfall, is back for another go. A couple of years ago, reports surfaced that he wouldn’t direct a follow-up, but judging by the dark, ominous tone of the trailer, elements that suggest tight narrative continuity from recent Bond movies, it looks like a natural move for Mendes to return and continue along that same old school Bond antics that he successfully set out on Skyfall.

“You’re a kite dancing in a hurricane, Mr. Bond,” says Mr. White. The character is played by Jesper Christensen, and appeared in earlier “Casino Royale” and “Quantum of Solace”.

Daniel Craig returns as 007 for the fourth time, with Christoph Waltz as Oberhauser, Ralph Fiennes (taking over as the new M), Naomie Harris as Moneypenny and Andrew Scott as Denbigh.

“Spectre” opens in theaters on November 6, 2015.
