James Bond has tackled many obstacles over the years. He's been in high speed pursuits in an Aston Martin, driven a tank through the streets of Russia and jumped out of helicopters. In the upcoming "Spectre," Bond, played by Daniel Craig, will take on members of an evil organization during the Day of the Dead parade in Mexico.
The new "Spectre" poster shows Craig rocking a white tuxedo and holding the signature Bond black pistol, the Walther PPK. In the background behind Craig is a person dressed in black with drawings of bones on the front and back, with a skeleton mask and a top hat, which people can wear for the "Day of the Dead" celebration.
The new Bond movie filmed in Mexico City where the annual Day of the Dead parade was recreated for a scene in the film. In a statement on 007.com, producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said films in the Bond franchise have filmed before in beautiful places all over the world.
"For the opening of SPECTRE, we are filming an exciting sequence in Mexico City featuring the Day of the Dead festival. Mexico City was chosen for the film because of the authentic needs of the story," they said.
Director Sam Mendes told Entertainment Weekly, "Spectre" will develop the back story of Bond and explore a tale that's never been told. While the truth of what the evil organization of "Spectre" is will be revealed, fans of the 007 franchise will get to see how Bond became the spy he is, which has never been shown before.
"I felt there was an opportunity there: What made him? And who were the people who affected him along the way? You’re sort of telling the story backwards of how Bond became Bond," Mendes dished.
The film also stars Christoph Waltz, who will play the villain Franz Oberhauser,"Guardians of the Galaxy" star Dave Bautista, Ralph Fiennes and Monica Bellucci. "Spectre" will be the fourth 007 film featuring Craig as Bond.
