We’re just weeks away from the latest James Bond flick, Spectre which sees Daniel Craig reprising his role as 007 for what may very well be the last time. Since the film went into production, there have been a number of vlogs released by the film’s producers and this latest one focuses on the music of Spectre, most notably its theme song “The Writing’s on the Wall” by Sam Smith. I’ve yet to listen to the new theme song in its entirety (not a pop music fan), but there’s not much new information buried in this one. Everyone involved with the film talks in hyperbolic terms about the film’s theme song and score, some even referring to Smith’s songs as an all-time great. Honestly, only time will tell on that.
Spectre is directed by Sam Mendes, and co-stars Christoph Waltz as the film’s mysterious villain, as well as Léa Seydoux, Monica Bellucci, Ralph Finnes, Andrew Scott, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, and Jasper Christensen. Spectre opens in theaters on November 6th, 2015.
The official synopsis for Spectre:
A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond (Daniel Craig) 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.
