Two New Spectre Posters Released


Editor

James Bond may not have traded in his signature suit for a sugar skull ensemble, but the Day of the Dead theme is definitely prevalent in the latest promotional images for Spectre.

With the release of the 24th installment in the 007 franchise just two months away, the studio has unveiled two new posters for the film. The first features Daniel Craig’s Bond holding his signature Walther PPK pistol and a Mexican Calavera. Check it out below:

The second poster is essentially the same as the first, but it includes the addition of Léa Seydoux’s Madeline Swann.

Why the juxtaposition  of these of these characters? The film’s official synopsis ties it all together:

A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as SPECTRE.

Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott), the new head of the Centre for National Security, questions Bond’s actions and challenges the relevance of MI6, led by M (Ralph Fiennes). Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) to help him seek out Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White (Jesper Christensen), who may hold the clue to untangling the web of SPECTRE. As the daughter of an assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot.

As Bond ventures towards the heart of SPECTRE, he learns of a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks, played by Christoph Waltz.

Spectre hits theaters November 6, 2016.
