It’s all in a film’s work for the international man of mystery whose exploits have been earning him some serious frequent flier miles since he first hit the big screen in 1962. SPECTRE is now in theaters.
SPECTRE, Daniel Craig’s fourth film as James Bond, opens in theaters Friday. But how well do you remember his last three Bond movies? After all, it’s been nine years since Casino Royale opened in theaters, proving to the world that Craig could fill the shoes (and swim trunks) of previous 007 agents like Pierce Brosnan and Sean Connery. SPECTRE brings it all home, tying together plot points introduced in Casino Royale (2006), Quantum of Solace (2008), and Skyfall (2012).
James Bond will once again be driving an Aston Martin, but the bad guys in the upcoming 007 flick SPECTRE will have some pretty sweet rides, too. Several of the film’s cast members showed up at the Frankfurt Auto Show in Germany this week to show off the new vehicles that will carry the baddies when SPECTRE hits theaters in November. In the photo above, Naomie Harris (Moneypenny) shares the spotlight with the sleek (and rare!) Jaguar C-X75, a million-dollar-plus electric hybrid car that the luxury automaker decided not to produce for the public a few years ago.
With Daniel Craig’s recent admission that SPECTRE will likely be his last time sipping martinis as James Bond, SPECULATION has begun running wild with who will take over the mantle. Idris Elba has gotten the most ink so far, partly because he has become a fan favorite, but mostly because of Bond writer Anthony Horowitz’s ill-advised choice of words in explaining why he didn’t think The Wire alum was the right fit. Now, another candidate emerges: Mr. Hugh Jackman.
The sweet cars, high-octane action scenes, and mysterious baddie are all big selling points for the next 007 film, SPECTRE. “James Bond is a part of cinema history, and I respect so much the James Bond girls because I think they’re incredible actresses,” Bellucci added.
The actor's 'SPECTRE' character may be cloaked in mystery, but he insists he's not playing the familiar Bond baddie Blofeld
