When you think of Marvel films, the Avengers and their subsidiaries found the most success when they diverted from the cliched superhero movie template. Captain America: The Winter Soldier was a political thriller, Guardians of the Galaxy was a space opera, and Ant-Man was a heist film. The same could very well be true of Spectre.

While in Mexico City filming the new James Bond movie earlier this year, Lea Seydoux described Spectre as the Bond film that’s almost not really a Bond film. She said,

I almost feel like it’s not a Bond film, actually, because [director] Sam [Mendes] is such a good director and he comes from, also, theatre and so he’s very in — what he likes, I think, is to direct actors. So I feel very privileged, you know, in that sense. I felt really, like, overwhelmed. Yeah, I felt very taken care of. … It’s really about, also, emotions, and it’s more deep than it used to be.


Seydoux plays Madeleine Swann in Spectre, which sees Agent 007 on a personal mission to hunt down someone from his past, while a mysterious organization emerges from the shadows. Watch her comments in the video below.
On the opposite spectrum from Seydoux is Dave Bautista, who plays Mr. Hinx. The Bond movie-loving actor, known for playing Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy, describes Spectre as going back to the days of classic Sean Connery. He said,

Reading the script — and this is speaking strictly as a fan. Reading the script, it’s just amazing. It’s awesome, and I’m — I was a big fan of Skyfall. Skyfall really sucked me in, and I hadn’t gone back and watched a Bond film over and over and over until Skyfall. And I really think that I did because they really tapped into that nostalgic feel of going back to my days, the days I loved so much of Sean Connery. And I think you get a lot more sense of that. I think that’s what Sam Mendes brings to it, what Daniel Craig brings to it. And I think you’re gonna get a lot more of that in Spectre. If you’re a fan of Skyfall, you’ll go insane over Spectre.

Today, we are celebrating Global James Bond Day, which is the anniversary of the theatrical release of Dr. No, the first James Bond film. Later this year, Daniel Craig, Lea Seydoux, and Dave Bautista are joined by Christoph Waltz, Monica Belluci, Andrew Scott, Rory Kinnear, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, and Stephanie Sigman in Spectre, which opens on November 6.
