They’ve really gone all out with this SPECTRE poster. Daniel Craig stood in front of a green screen somewhere in a white tuxedo – bingo, it’s a winner. But what’s that in the background. Could Skelator have discovered how good he look in a hat? Why no, it appears to be Baron Samedi from Live and Let Die…maybe. Why the hell not? The film is going all retro with the return of Bond’s big bad in SPECTRE so they might as well incorporate the other elements of the novels. Craig’s Bond began with a revitalisation of the franchise and stripping back all the old tropes. By the end of Skyfall they were all back in place so they might as well tread over old ground, only this time in a dark and moody way.
The cast includes Ralph Fiennes as M, Ben Whishaw as Q, and Naomie Harris as Moneypenny alongside newcomers Christoph Waltz, Monica Bellucci and Dave Bautista.
SPECTRE arrives in UK cinemas on 26 October 2015
