Since the film's premiere in London on 26th October, Spectre has been smashing box-office records and has broken the record of the biggest opening of all time in the UK. Within just seven days it made £41.7 million and, combined with Ireland, Netherlands, Finland, Denmark, Norway and Sweden making a total of $80 million.
The Official Teaser Trailer to the 24th James Bond movie 'SPECTRE' was released last night at 11:45 GMT.
As the main unit travelled back to London to shoot interior scenes at Pinewood Studios, the second unit team performed the massive plane crash stunt in Obertilliach.
The title of BOND 24 has been officially announced as well as the principal cast members and the new Aston Martin DB10 which will also appear in the movie. The announcement was made at The 007 Stage at Pinewood Studios. Below is the full press release.
Last year, ITV lost the rights to show the James Bond films on Saturday afternoons; a tradition it held for many years and invited a new generation of fans to the fold. Thankfully, ITV have reacquired the rights and 007 will be back on UK television in the new year...
Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, EON Productions; Gary Barber, Chairman & CEO, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer; Michael Lynton, CEO, Sony Entertainment, Inc, and Amy Pascal, Co-Chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment today announced that Daniel Craig will once again return as the legendary British secret agent in the 24th James Bond film and Sam Mendes will also return to direct the screenplay written by John Logan. The film is set for release in the UK on October 23, 2015 and in the US on November 6, 2015.
SKYFALL the 23rd James Bond film, took in $1.1 billion worldwide and set a new mark as the highest-grossing film of all time in the UK; it was the best-selling Bond film on DVD/Blu-ray and was the most critically acclaimed film in the history of the longest-running film franchise.
Commenting on the announcement, Wilson and Broccoli said, “Following the extraordinary success of SKYFALL, we’re really excited to be working once again with Daniel Craig, Sam Mendes and John Logan.”
“I am very pleased that by giving me the time I need to honour all my theatre commitments, the producers have made it possible for me to direct Bond 24. I very much look forward to taking up the reins again, and to working with Daniel Craig, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli for a second time,” said Mendes.
Barber added, “We are thrilled to reunite the extraordinary talents of director Sam Mendes with our star Daniel Craig for the next great Bond adventure.” He added, “As evidenced by the phenomenal success of our last collaboration with EON Productions and Sony, the incredible legacy of this 51-year-old franchise continues to amaze.”
Pascal and Lynton said, “It’s a privilege to work on the Bond films. EON, John Logan and Sam Mendes have come up with an extraordinary follow up to SKYFALL and we, along with our partners at MGM, can’t wait to share this new chapter with audiences all over the world.”
For many, "Die Another Day" was considered a flop. It included excessive CGI throughout. However, director Lee Tamahori and producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli shed some light on the subject.
“The first hour is good, then it goes a bit cartoon-y. But at the start, Brosnan is captured by the North Koreans, tortured, then traded for an enemy agent. M is very tough [with Bond] and he has to escape. They question whether Bond has cracked and so on. It is reasonably similar material to the later ones but it’s the way it’s done [by the director].” Neal Purvis
“I think you can’t regret anything, because what you do affects your next step,” said Barbara Broccoli.
“By the way, those are now part of the military”, added Michael G. Wilson.
“It’s true,” replied Broccoli. “That’s where we got the idea from when we were making the film. It was the cutting edge of technology.”
Neal Purvis and Robert Wade joked that the invisible Aston Martin Vanquish was in every James Bond movie, you just couldn't see it. They also mentioned that they originally envisioned the car being camouflaged into the background setting, but Lee Tamahori decided to take it one step further.
