The New Poster For SPECTRE Hints At The Opening Sequence

Progress on the filming of director Sam Mendes's latest, and likely final if he so suggests, entry into the 007 franchise with the new film, Spectre, has been open to the public with a small array of gems hinting at the direction of the film. Back in June, a vlog on the official website details the opening sequence in Mexico with a "Day Of The Dead" ceremony underway.

“I wanted the audience to be dropped right into the middle of a very, very specific, very heady, rich environment." says Mendes. "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,”

The most recent synopsis from July offers a hint on what that could mean for the rest of the film on top of its new-timeline by way of its pseudo-relevance to previous Bond films and their specific characters. In the meantime, the latest poster pays tribute to said sequence with a rather peculiar backdrop, and actor Daniel Craig front and center as James Bond. Check it out below and make note of the November 6 date from Sony!

A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as SPECTRE.

Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott), the new head of the Centre for National Security, questions Bond’s actions and challenges the relevance of MI6, led by M (Ralph Fiennes). Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) to help him seek out Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White (Jesper Christensen), who may hold the clue to untangling the web of SPECTRE. As the daughter of an assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot.

As Bond ventures towards the heart of SPECTRE, he learns of a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks, played by Christoph Waltz.
