The latest SPECTRE vlog takes us behind the scenes of the elaborate Day of the Dead Bond opener with 1,500 extras in full costume.
Sam Mendes and a slew of costumers/hair crafts people give us a brief glimpse into recreating the the famous festival shot in Mexico City for the illustrious pre-credit sequence. Thunderball’s Junkanoo festival comes to mind, as does the New Orleans and voodoo vibe of Live and Let Die: But producer Michael Wilson proclaims it’s the “biggest sequence we’ve ever done.”
There’s no action here but if you look closely at the latest TV spot, there’s a chase and a helicopter fight. This has the all the makings of the first traditional pre-credit sequence of the Craig era. The only question is: Do we get the gunbarrel back in its proper place? We’ll find out Nov. 6 when SPECTRE opens stateside.
