We now know that SPECTRE is going to be causing a whole range of headaches for Daniel Craig’s 007 starting with the next James Bond movie, due in theaters next November. And even though we went ahead and mapped out several key facts you need to know about the criminal organization, a James Bond super fan went the extra mile to create a SPECTRE-heavy trailer based on the past exploits of the spy with a license to kill. Check it out below:
Brad Hansen deserves proper credit for creating this historical look at SPECTRE’s involvement in the James Bond series, dating back to Dr. No (Bond’s first big-screen adventure) and running through such titles as From Russia With Love, Thunderball, You Only Live Twice and Diamonds Are Forever. The acronym for the world-dominating evil group stands for the SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion, and every indication is that Christoph Waltz will join the cast of Spectre as the group’s wicked head, Ernst Stavro Blofeld. But the above video reminds audiences of just how many times 007 stood in the group’s way, paving a path to more heroics for Daniel Craig.
The thing that I love about this current run of James Bond films is that Daniel Craig and his producers (and now Sam Mendes, who has become a guiding voice) don’t feel beholden to "top" the latest entry – leading to a series of escalatingly silly effects and sequences. Do you remember how Moonraker was an attempt to answer the popularity of Star Wars and Star Trek? Or how the entire Pierce Brosnan run was done in by ludicrous decisions to think BIGGER with the spy who loves us? Brosnan might have been our best Bond if the team had hit the reset button back with Goldeneye. But now that Craig’s at the heart of a rebooted Bond franchise, we are able to slowly, steadily rescue elements from the past, but handle them with a contemporary grace and dignity.
Because really, SPECTRE isn’t too far removed from this:
Sam Mendes’ Spectre will open in theaters on November 6, 2015.
