Honest Trailers Spectre

James Bond has always been an intriguing character who sparks massive debate over “who played him best?” There are usually two camps: Connery or Craig. Sean Connery was the first, and in many people’s opinion the best Bond, establishing all the tropes that have stayed with the super spy for 6 decades. Daniel Craig, meanwhile, through his first 3 times out has etched a far more gritty Bond, a realistic and darker take on the character that has appealed to fans in the post-Nolan’s Batman world. Confession: I love Roger Moore. Nothing about James Bond seems realistic and I love Moore’s ridiculous over-the-top movies including my personal favorite Bond movie, The Man with the Golden Gun with the awesome Christopher Lee as the villain. Moore was also great in Octopussy and even the totally whacked out terrible (in a good way) Moonraker. And at least Moore wasn’t a mopey dick! This week, Screen Junkies’ Honest Trailers series takes aim at 007, with Craig’s latest and maybe last Bond film, Spectre.

Check out the Honest Trailer below.

Listen Now: Radiohead’s Unused James Bond ‘Spectre’ Theme Song

Radiohead does James Bond Spectre song Daniel Craig

Although it was a huge step down from the absolutely perfect quality of its predecessor Skyfall, I had a lot of fun with the latest James Bond adventure Spectre. I do have to admit that the opening credits sequence, a longtime staple of the franchise, had me almost rolling on the theater floor in hysterics due to its surprisingly perverse octopus imagery and Sam Smith‘s ridiculous and over-orchestrated main title song “Writing’s on the Wall.”

Smith wasn’t the first choice of Spectre‘s producers and director Sam Mendes to perform the Spectre theme tune. Several artists were sought out for the job, one of them being the internationally-renowned British pop-rock band Radiohead. Early in the morning on Christmas Day, Radiohead’s lead singer and songwriter Thom Yorke confirmed the long-standing rumor via his Twitter. As a Christmas gift for their fans, Radiohead has released their unused contribution to 007’s latest cinematic mission, simply titled “Spectre,” which you can listen to here below.

After dispatching his target, Bond heads to Rome to attend the funeral, where he meets the dead man’s widow, Lucia (Monica Bellucci). Of course, because this is a Bond film, they have sex and she gives him all the information he needs to pursue SPECTRE.

Sam Smith's James Bond Theme Writing's On The Wall

There is a little over a month left before the release of the latest James Bond film Spectre, and there is still plenty of time to do some major promotions. Trailers and TV spots are easy to churn out, but one signature promotion that the Bond films have is the Bond theme.

After months of rumors and speculation, Grammy Award winner Sam Smith was chosen. Unlike most of the previous themes, this title song won’t match with the title of the film. In this case, the song is called “Writing’s On The Wall.” And now you can hear the song in its entirety here below.

Discussion: Can Sam Smith Really Top “Skyfall”?

Daniel Craig as James Bond in Spectre

It’s a very prestigious moment when an artist can join a very elite group that feature’s the likes of Paul McCartney, Duran Duran, Tom Jones, and Sheryl Crow. We aren’t talking about the Grammy’s or The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. We’re talking Bond. James Bond.

On Monday, the artist Sam Smith casually broke his vow of denial on the subject of whether he was chosen to sing the theme song for the upcoming Bond movie, Spectre. It was confirmed shortly after Smith posted a picture of a peculiar ring that features the famous evil organization’s S.P.E.C.T.R.E logo on it, that indeed the theme song will be called “Writing’s on the Wall” and feature Smith as the singer/songwriter. It will be the first time since “Thunderball” (Tom Jones) in 1965 that featured a British male solo artist as the theme song singer.

Smith will have to really step up his game if he hopes to top the last Bond film’s theme song which was Adele‘s “Skyfall” for the Bond film of the same name. That song went on to earn an Oscar for Best Song at the Academy Awards and is considered by many to be one of the best Bond songs of them all.

Daniel Craig as James Bond in New Spectre Poster

A common staple of the long-running James Bond franchise is the Bond girl. There is no set number on how many Bond girls can appear in one film or set rules on the role she will play in the film. The character can be either an ally or an enemy, a pivotal character to Bond’s mission, or just simply eye candy.

For the upcoming James Bond film, Spectre, there will be four Bond girls. Lea Seydoux (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, The Grand Budapest Hotel), Monica Bellucci (The Matrix Revolutions, Shoot ‘Em Up), and Stephanie Sigman (Netflix’s Narcos, FX’s The Bridge) will play new characters in the film, while Naomie Harris (28 Days Later) will reprise her role as Moneypenny, a role she first played in Skyfall.

Now Sony Pictures and EON Productions has released four brand new images and shared character descriptions for the four Bond girls that will appear in Spectre, which you can check out below.
