I know I’m a few days late to the party, but some stuff came up. Anyways, anybody who knows me will tell you that I’ve been a massive James Bond fan for most of my life. So of course I’m excited about the latest movie in the series, “Spectre.” However, I would be lying if I said I loved this teaser trailer.
I do like that “Spectre” picks up after “Skyfall” and that those events have lasting ramifications for the people at MI6. And to be fair, the teaser does have some intriguing ideas: Looks like we’re going to learn more about Bond;s past, including a possible brother for Bond (but I think it will turn out to be sister). And perhaps we’ll get an origin story for Blofeld or Spectre which I’d enjoy.
My issue with the teaser is that nothing really happens. There’s no money action shot. Why? Because filming is ongoing, and any special effects or stunts probably haven’t been finished yet. We don’t even get to see all the character from the movie.
Normally the first Bond trailer doesn’t hit until May, and maybe they should have waited a bit longer to release the first look. But regardless of my problems with the trailer, I still can’t wait to see this movie.
In Sam Mendes I trust.
