Through the production and marketing for Sam Mendes’ latest Bond film Spectre, we’ve gotten some really cool behind-the-scenes looks from their little Video Blog series. Each video focuses on a different aspect of the movie with newest being all about Bond’s ladies, featuring Léa Seydoux and Monica Bellucci.
Seydoux is playing Dr. Madeleine Swan and Bellucci is playing Lucia Sciarra. The video doesn’t reveal a whole lot of new details about either character, but it gives us enough while also giving us more looks at the film. Director Sam Mendes on the two characters: “both have great mystery, they both have depths and for that you need fantastic actresses.” Although we don’t get that in the following video, it’s great to hear that these Bond girls aren’t just their to look at, instead they’ll have much more to do this time around and even add some depth to Bond as well.
As I was with Skyfall, I’m insanely looking forward to Daniel Craig’s fourth outing as Bond, everything so far has sold me. I really like the path these films are going down and the more darker and almost personal tone they’re taking. It’s much more enjoyable then the whole ‘spy saving the world’ kind of thing. Not only that and as the video above highlights, Bond isn’t always the focus. The supporting characters in these films are taking much bigger roles and it’s definitely paid off.
Spectre hits theaters on November 6th, 2015. Directed by Sam Mendes starring Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Christoph Waltz, Naomie Harris, Léa Seydoux, Monica Bellucci, Ben Whishaw, Dave Bautista, Rory Kinnear, Andrew Scott, and Jesper Christensen.
