New 'Spectre' Trailer Proves James Bond Is As Badass As Ever & This Movie Is Going To Be Crazy Good — VIDEO
I feel like it's safe to say that many of us have been waiting for the latest installment of the James Bond franchise, Spectre , for what feels like way too long. After all, it's been three years since Skyfall, and the infamous British Secret Service agent, played by Daniel Craig since 2006, has been a noticeable absence from the big screen. There's no action movie quite like a Bond action movie — the assassinations, the explosions, the grandiose love affairs... ah, I'm feeling wistful just thinking about it. That's why the release of the new Spectre trailer came at the perfect time, and got me way too excited for the movie's Nov. 6 release date.
It's hard to really get the full gist of a movie in a two-and-a-half minute trailer, but Spectre manages to get its main message across: James Bond has a new enemy, one that's been right there in front of his face this whole time. The head of the Spectre organization is dangerous, that's for sure, and Bond will have to outwit his opponent like never before (and, you know, manage to stay alive in the meantime). This movie is shaping up to be more amazing by the day, and I can't wait to see it. In the meantime, I'll keep watching the trailer on repeat to make sure I've uncovered all the clues I can leading up to its release.
Here's what I've learned so far:
Christoph Waltz Is Not To Be Trusted
When you finally lay eyes on the head of the Spectre organization, you realize it's Christoph Waltz, who makes haste of announcing malevolently, "It was me, James, the author of all your pain." Well, that sounds lovely. Also, is it just me, or do Waltz and Craig look way too alike?
Skeleton Masks Are Scary
I get the need for a disguise, particularly if your life is in danger. The skeleton costume choice is perfect, in a sense, but it still gives me the creeps. Bonus creep points for Ralph Fiennes, who manages to give me Lord Voldemort vibes in the span of a second.
There Are Guns That Make Entire Buildings Explode
I'm no ballistics expert, but that's some gun if you can make an entire building explode just by shooting it once. Seems a bit intense, right? Then again, given Bond's line of work, it's likely the building was already rigged with a bomb and the gun just helped it along.
Bond Still Loves Fast Cars
A Bond movie just isn't a Bond movie without a racing scene in the sexiest, sleekest sports car available. Spectre doesn't disappoint, thankfully.
The Leader Of The Spectre Organization Is Everywhere
Or, at least in Mexico City and Rome, the two beautiful locales you get a close look at in Spectre. It's unclear in which of these two locations Bond comes face to face with Waltz, whose character name is actually Franz Oberhauser, but something tells me he'll be hard to pin down from there.
Being James Bond Is A Dangerous Job
I mean, I guess it comes with the territory, but come on! This had better be some high paying gig to be putting up with that.
James Bond Is At The Center Of Everything
It's known that Bond is important, but just how important is he? Very, apparently. He's the one who connects the entire Spectre organization. How? Who knows — I guess I'll have to see when it actually comes out.
We're In For Some Serious Action
Spectre is going to be incredible, right? I'm way too excited now. It's going to be a long few months waiting for this to hit theatres, but once it does, oh man. We're all in for a treat!
