The marketing seems to be kicking into pretty high gear as of late for Spectre, the latest entry into the James Bond franchise. We most likely won’t see another trailer for the film, hopefully, but instead just see a number of TV spots, images, and posters as its release date draws closer.
This film is no secret, it really doesn’t even need a marketing campaign. The Daniel Craig led Bond films have been nothing short of amazing (other than Quantum of Solace, which was so-so). They’ve established a new age for the character, with an insanely powerful gritty take that easily has this franchise as one of the best of today. Not just that, but over the course of three films so far, we’ve seen Daniel Craig solidify himself as one of if not the greatest actor to ever be 007, and my personal favorite.
Now as for Spectre, what can I really say? It’s exactly what we thought and were expecting, possibly even more. It continues that incredibly gritty feel I was talking about, but still having that James Bond flare that we all just love. That very flare I’m speaking of is beautifully showed off in the new posters below, which feature Daniel Craig’s Bond and the gorgeous Léa Seydoux, who’s playing Dr. Madeleine Swann, just one of the new Bond girls to be featured in Spectre.
For me, what draws me to this 007 franchise so much is the incredible job each director has done in evolving the character of Bond with each film. What makes this character so freaking great is the shroud of mystery revolving around him. Who is he really? Where’d he come from? What was he like as a young spy? What made him who he is today? And slowly through this current franchise, we’ve been getting tidbits into this Bond, and it’s just been fascinating to see unfold on screen.
You can also check out the latest TV spot as well. It doesn’t feature a ton of new footage, but it does have just enough to build our anticipation just that much more:
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.
