What better way to kick off today, It’s shaken but not stirred as the ladies of Bond are the focus of the new James Bond Spectre Vlog. Actresses Léa Seydoux and Monica Bellucci are new to the franchise, in the spotlight for the latest promo that teases us on what their slightly mysterious roles in the new film.
As ever the Women in any Bond film need to air a sense of mystery and a big slice of seductive prowse which director Sam Mendes explains Seydoux and Belucci possess.Seydoux is “She’s a doctor, she’s intelligent and very sensitive…” as for Bellucci “She’s an Italian widow with secrets.”, 2 descriptions that would seduce anyone’s mind. Whilst the ladies may allure with their beauty the world of a spy they have the strength and guille to make even the the world’s greatest spy weak at the knees.
A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond (Daniel Craig) on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as SPECTRE.
Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott), the new head of the Centre for National Security, questions Bond’s actions and challenges the relevance of MI6, led by M (Ralph Fiennes). Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) to help him seek out Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White (Jesper Christensen), who may hold the clue to untangling the web of SPECTRE. As the daughter of an assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot.
As Bond ventures towards the heart of SPECTRE, he learns of a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks.
Spectre arrives in UK&Ireland on 26th October , USA 6th November.
