Hot on the heels of Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, MGM wants to let the world know that it’s not just Tom Cruise who can batter bad guys for breakfast.After what seems like an eternity, Bond is back. A teaser trailer was released today for the upcoming Spectre, and you can view this very trailer below. And look, Daniel Craig is sporting a turtle neck sweater.
In what looks like the most boring, least action packed trailer ever released, Daniel Craig reprises his role as the super spy James Bond for his fourth outing. Over the years, Bond movie are synonymous with car chases, high octane action sequences and endless shoot outs. This trailer shows Bond basically driving his car out of a multi storey car park after a lengthy shop at Aldi, and sitting in his Dad’s dressing gown reading Hello magazine. And by the way, just in case you have to rewind the trailer, Jesper Christensen’s Mr. White calls Bond a kite- He calls Bond a kite, okay??
The demand for snippets of new films almost before the cameras have stopped rolling has become huge, with teaser trailers being released long before the first full length trailer. Perhaps director Sam Mendes should have waited until a full trailer was ready, as from what the teaser trailer shows, this film could give George Lazenby’s effort a run for its money as the most boring Bond in history.
We may be being a bit harsh, as Spectre does actually look quite good, and the tension that builds up throughout the trailer indicates that things will kick off in a big way. Also starring Christoph Waltz, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Wishaw and Naomie Harris, the twenty fourth James Bond film opens in the UK on October the 21st.
