SPECTRE unveils trailer emphasizing action

Added an update that some might consider a spoiler. Update is in the 7th paragraph below.

The first regular trailer for SPECTRE, the 24th James Bond film, was unveiled today and it emphasized action.

The 2:30 trailer included scenes from the movie’s pre-titles sequence in Mexico City, a car chase filmed in Rome, and a sequence where an aircraft gets separated from its wings during another chase sequence.

The movie’s teaser trailer in March didn’t emphasize action, depicting a meeting between Bond (Daniel Craig) and Mr. White, last seen in 2008’s Quantum of Solace. White is back in this trailer, but only briefly.

Also featured in the new trailer: Mr. Hinx (Dave Bautista) dispatching someone viciously, and Christoph Waltz’s Oberhauser proceeding over what appears to be some kind of SPECTRE meeting (the name is uttered at one point in the trailer by Lea Seydoux as Madeleine Swann).

There’s also a new sight for the Daniel Craig era of James Bond movies, with 007 in a white dinner jacket. Besides Craig, we see brief bits from Naomie Harris’ Moneypenny, Ralph Fiennes’s M and Ben Whishaw’s Q.

Finally, around the 1:45 mark, there’s a John Barry musical piece from the past, a new rendition of the main theme from On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.

UPDATE: “Gustav Graves,” a member of the message boards of the MI6 James Bond site, spotted the following at 0:40 mark — a glimpse of the Aston Martin DB5. You can see it in the background behind Q’s left shoulder. The car had appeared to be destroyed in Skyfall. But photos of it emerged during filming of SPECTRE. Also, Sony Canada put out AN APRIL 2 TWEET that appeared to be confirm the DB5 was back. The trailer seems to confirm it also.

Take a look for yourself:

  1. what we’ve seen in this new trailer, is a much clearer understanding of what the viewing audience is expecting. The brief images of the Mexican carnival opening scene’s, which bring’s back memories of ‘live and let die’ (1973) A car chase in Rome, which the action might out do ‘the spy who loved me’ (1977) the white dinner jacket is comforting to me, because i remember seeing sir Sean Connery wearing it in ‘Goldfinger’ (1964) and sir roger Moore in nearly half of his bond films, and it does look cool. the theme song from ‘Her Majesty secret service, fits the trailer beautifully. The signs are there where in for possibly Daniel Craig’s best outing as James Bond 007
