SPECTRE teaser poster unveiled: the McQueen look

The SPECTRE teaser poster was unveiled at 1 p.m. New York time. Star Daniel Craig’s look is similar to Steve McQueen in Bullitt — black turtleneck and shoulder holster.

Here’s the tweet from the official 007 Twitter feed

A reader reminds us that Roger Moore had a similar look in Live And Let Die when his James Bond had his final showdown with Dr. Kananga.

Bullitt was released in 1968 while Live And Let Die came out in 1973.

UPDATE: One of the Sony Pictures accounts on Twitter, in addition to tweeting a black and white version of the picture, said SPECTRE’s first trailer will be on MARCH 28.

Meanwhile, we’ve been reminded the “spy-in-a turtleneck” look was pioneered by David McCallum as Illya Kuryakin in The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

UPDATE (March 18): The Tweet from Sony giving the March 28 date for the teaser trailer was deleted sometime afterwards.

  1. As SPECTRE will open on my beloved wife’s birthday, and since she met, and (I believe) charmed Cubby Broccoli at Kennedy Airport prior to the press flight to London for SPY, she approves the teaser trailer. I do not. Much affection to HMSS. R

  2. Wasn’t McQueen wearing a Berns-.Martin shoulder holster in Bullitt?
