And what a big bang it is.
A few hours ago the new trailer for the next James Bond movie, Spectre, was released. We got an eerie teaser trailer a few months ago chocked full of dark imagery and sublime cinematography (as we have come to expect from the modern movies), and while this is the same it’s much more action-packed and feels like classic Bond in a way Skyfall didn’t. Check it out!
I was never the biggest Bond fan growing up, but I really loved Skyfall and it got me into this franchise in a way that I didn’t think would ever happen – this movie looks set to be just as good if not better. The action was visceral and exciting, the cinematography was beautiful and it just oozed intrigue and delight. I’m so fucking excited.
Also, Andrew Scott’s character. C’mon. Look at that split-second shot and tell me that isn’t an arch-villain-reveal-shot.
He’s supposed to be playing a good guy working for the British government – Denbigh – but I wouldn’t be shocked if he turned out to be Blofeld rather than Waltz. He’d certainly be cheaper and it would be more shocking. Have I just spoiled the movie for myself? Dammit.
