Director Sam Mendes discusses SPECTRE in new behind-the-scenes footage released today. From the set of Bond 24, he reveals why he has returned to direct his second Bond film and expands upon the story of SPECTRE.
“The reasons I’m doing the second Bond movie are the reasons I would do any movie, really, which is all to do with the story. And in this movie, SPECTRE, what you have is a movie entirely driven by Bond. He is on a mission from the very beginning,” he says. “It’s about whether or not to pursue the life he’s always pursued, whether he matters and is he going to continue or not. And you’re going to have to come to see the movie to find out whether he does.”
The footage also includes Daniel Craig as James Bond as well as cast members Ralph Fiennes (M), Naomie Harris (Eve Moneypenny) and Ben Whishaw (Q).
SPECTRE is set for global release on 6 November, 2015.
