Mendes says SPECTRE ‘entirely driven by Bond’

No real spoilers the extremely spoiler adverse should just stop now.

Director Sam Mendes has made his first video for SPECTRE. In it, he says the 24th 007 film is “entirely driven by Bond.”

“He is on a mission from the very beginning,” Mendes says of 007, played in the movie by Daniel Craig. “He is on the hunt, on the trail, of somebody. You don’t know why, you don’t know what he’s doing there.”

Mendes also said he “initiated” Ralph Fiennes’ M, Naomie Harris’ Moneypenny and Ben Whishaw’s Q in Skyfall and he came back for a second 007 go-round to develop the next stage of their stories. As for Bond, the director says, the movie concerns whether he wants to continue the life he’s chosen for himself “or not.”

The 89-second video includes a small bit of a car chase being filmed in Rome and Whishaw’s Q out in the field. The video is embedded below.

UPDATE: Mendes also says around the 28-second mark that part of SPECTRE’s story involves Bond’s childhood.
