The pre-credits Day of the Dead parade scene from Spectre will reportedly feature over 1500 extras and Bond producer Michael G. Wilson has described it as "the biggest sequence we've ever done." Last month a breakdown of the scene landed online, and now Yahoo has released a video that is a mix of behind-the-scenes footage and stills from the shoot in Mexico City. 2nd unit director Alex Witt and actress Stephanie Sigman (Estrella) provided details on what's »

Early into production of the next James Bond film, Spectre, leading man Daniel Craig suffered a knee injury on the set. Craig had to have surgery to repair the damage. Will the film still make its November release date?
Secret agent James Bond may have a knack for shrugging off beatings and injuries that would lay out a normal man, but the guy who portrays him doesn’t have that sort of luck. A studio spokesman told the BBC that 007 actor Daniel Craig injured his leg while filming a fight sequence in the Austrian Alps, as part of the latest film in the Bond franchise, Spectre. The knee injury was at first thought to be only a sprain, but it turned out that the damage was more serious than originally believed, so Craig had to undergo arthroscopic surgery. He is currently resting and recovering.
What does this mean for the film, »

Of all the things to stop James Bond dead in his tracks, a small knee injury wouldn’t be the first obstacle to come to mind. Nevertheless, following an on-set accident back in February, MGM has confirmed that star Daniel Craig underwent minor knee surgery during a scheduled Spectre break to correct said injury. He is human, after all!
Here’s what a spokesperson had to say about the incident, which won’t have any impact on the film’s production schedule.
“During a scheduled break, Daniel Craig had arthroscopic surgery to repair his knee injury. He will rejoin production on April 22nd at Pinewood.”
Craig first sprained his knee whilst filming an action scene at England’s famous Pinewood Studios, though this didn’t affect Spectre‘s European shoots that followed, as it’s understood the actor didn’t miss any days of filming as production switched to Rome »

Bond producer Michael G. Wilson is making a bold claim telling Empire the opening sequence to the new James Bond movie Spectre, which takes place during the Day of the Dead celebration in Mexico, will be "the biggest opening sequence we've ever done, maybe the biggest sequence we've ever done". "The whole vision that director Sam Mendes has come up with is very exciting and amazing," Wilson added. "We've got 1500 extras in Day of the Dead costumes and make up and we've occupied the centre of Mexico City for days. The only thing that's come close to it was putting on the carnival in Rio in Moonraker see video, and I think this is a much bigger operation." So what does this opening entailc Well, according to Empire, we'll get "exploding buildings, a pulse-quickening foot chase through the Day Of The Dead parade and a fight inside a helicopter, which »

Late last week, the first trailer for "Spectre" dropped, and it was a lot of moody lighting and people talking in hushed, ominous tones. But don't worry, the actual movie is going to bring the requisite ambition we now expect from a franchise that kissed the billion dollar mark with "Skyfall." You'll know it right from the opening moments of the movie, set during the Day Of The Dead in Mexico, where lensing is currently underway. It will be "the biggest opening sequence we've ever done, maybe the biggest sequence we've ever done," producer Michael G. Wilson told Empire, adding, "We've got 1500 extras in Day Of The Dead costumes and make up and we've occupied the centre of Mexico City for days. The only thing that's come close to it was putting on the carnival in Rio in 'Moonraker,' and I think this is a much bigger operation. »

Over the weekend, we were in Mexico City on the set of the next James Bond outing "Spectre." This film marks the fourth time that Daniel Craig has inhabited the role of 007 and the second collaboration between Craig and his "Skyfall" director Sam Mendes. During the last phase of our trip, we were offered a special treat: a roundtable sit down with the longtime shepherds of the James Bond franchise: producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson. Broccoli is, of course, the daughter of 007 producer Albert "Cubby" Broccoli and is Wilson's step brother (Wilson wrote several of the 007 movies, including "The Living Daylights," which also partially took place in Mexico).
The trailer for "Spectre" having premiered just hours before, we had a lot of questions for the producing team (and surprisingly, they only refused to answer some). In our conversation, they teased the connection between "Skyfall" and "Spectre" (and to »

Empire magazine recently visited the set of the upcoming James Bond movie "Spectre" and witnesses the filming of the opening sequence, which producer Michael Wilson says will be massive in scale. "[It will be] the biggest opening sequence we've ever done, maybe the biggest sequence we've ever done," he said of a scene that takes place during Mexico's national Day of the Dead festival. "The whole vision that Sam Mendes has come up with is very exciting and amazing. We've got 1500 extras in Day Of The Dead costumes and make up and we've occupied the center of Mexico City for days." The scene kicks of the story of "Spectre" and includes exploding buildings, a thrilling chase and fight inside of a helicopter. Check out the photos below to get an idea of what to expect.

Over the past few days, I got to visit the Mexico City set of the next James Bond movie, Spectre. Directed by Sam Mendes (Skyfall) and starring Daniel Craig as Bond, everything I saw and learned during my set visit makes me extremely confident that the upcoming sequel will be something special. For more on the film, here’s a description of the awesome-sounding opening chase sequence that will be between twelve and fifteen minutes of screen time. The day after my set visit, I got to participate in group interview with Spectre producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson. While they were tight lipped about revealing the secrets of Spectre, we got updates on the theme song, how they decided what would be in the teaser trailer, putting together the cast, the rumors that Spectre could have been a two-part movie, if James Bond could exist in a shared universe, »

While the teaser trailer for the next James Bond film "Spectre" surprisingly went further than expected in some of the film's big reveals, one thing that was notably absent was action.
Much like the very first "Batman Begins" trailer, the filmmakers focused specifically on character drama for the teaser. Some establishing shots gave the footage grandeur, but even so it was only people sitting and talking in rooms.
One of the reasons for that is the film is still in the midst of shooting with some big action set pieces still to be done. The film's production crew were recently on location in Mexico City shooting one of the key action set pieces of the film - the pre-credits sequence.
Minor Spoilers Ahead
Various outlets were on hand in the city for one day of the nearly ten day shoot in which 1,500 extras participated in a recreation of the Mexican »

When last we saw Naomie Harris as the new Moneypenny in Skyfall, she was taking a leave from the field and resigning to be the secretary to the new M (Ralph Fiennes). If you thought that was it for the character.s adrenaline junkie lifestyle as we head into Spectre territory, don.t count her out. Along with a group of press, we spoke with James Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson while covering the Mexico City set of Spectre. According to them, Miss Moneypenny is still very much involved in the plot of the new movie. Said Broccoli, You can.t keep this one behind a desk. This Moneypenny is very active. She is key to the story and key to helping Bond on his mission. She.s not deskbound. There.s a reason the Moneypenny reveal was made at the end of Skyfall. If you recall »
Shortly after the first trailer debuted, a number of various sites reported back from the set of the latest James Bond adventure Spectre. They gave a detailed account of the opening action scene, which takes place in Mexico City's Plaza de la Constitución during Day of the Dead. A number of new production photos were released as well, featuring both Daniel Craig in his return as 007 and Stephanie Sigman in her Day of the Dead disguise. From the sounds of it, Spectre will kick things off with one heck of a chase sequence.
The scene in question is taking nearly ten days to shoot, and will utilize more than 1500 extras all decked out in Day of the Dead make-up. The scene features James Bond meeting Estrella (Stephanie Sigman) in the crowded streets surrounded by giant Skeleton floats and other larger-than-life decorations. They hurry to make their way through the massive parade, »

After the new poster debuted earlier this month, Sony Pictures has released the first teaser trailer for the 24th James Bond adventure Spectre, arriving in theaters November 6.

Earlier today, as the world anxiously awaited the premiere of the teaser trailer for "Spectre," the latest James Bond adventure (once again starring Daniel Craig as 007), we were on the set of the film in Mexico City, watching them film the movie's dramatic opening sequence and chatting with various members of the crew. This sequence obviously didn't make it into the teaser, which was weirdly action-free, but it did give us a hint at what's to come from this spy thriller.
Mexico is a location that the James Bond franchise has utilized plenty of times before, most recently in the mostly forgotten Craig entry "Quantum of Solace" and the hotel where part of this action sequence takes place, the Gran Hotel de Mexico, had already been used in a 007 movie -- the even-more-forgotten Timothy Dalton joint "The Living Daylights," way back in 1987 (no, I don't remember that one either).

After months of behind-the-scenes featurettes and images, the 24th Bond instalment has delivered a shot of the hard stuff. The first teaser trailer for the secret agent’s next batch of adventures has finally arrived online. And boy, is it a zinger.
Featuring Daniel Craig as the titular secret agent, Spectre picks up sometime after the events of Skyfall and follows Bond as he embarks on another globe-trotting mission to track down a mysterious organization. As expected, he comes up against a veritable cast of surly baddies keen to halt his quest, and an array of dazzling beauties to ease the pain of all those nasty scrapes.
Returning director Sam Mendes hits his stride in this brief but awe-inspiring preview for the flick. Exotic locales, bursts of action, and lingering looks at the new roster of acting talent all suggest we’re in for another wild ride later this year. »

The world received its first glimpse of “Spectre” on Friday with the release of a teaser trailer for the 24th James Bond film on 007.com.
The teaser went live at 23:45 GMT, or at the very end of the work week in the United Kingdom. The worldwide release is set for Nov. 6.
The trailer opens with Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny giving Daniel Craig’s James Bond personal effects from Skyfall, his boyhood home — which burned to the ground at the end of the movie of the same name.
“You’ve got a secret — something you can’t tell anyone because you don’t trust anyone,” she adds.
As usual with Bond films, most of the plot details of “Spectre” have been kept under wraps. The official description: “A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces »
