Empire have revealed two new images from the upcoming 24th Bond film, Spectre, and the images feature Dave Bautista as the henchman Mr Hinx, plus Le Seydoux as an almost Bond girl Dr Madeleine Swann.
Also included below is a video blog by director Sam Mendes, who reveals that the new film will look at a second part of Bond’s childhood.
Bautista told Empire:
“When I came over to meet Sam [Mendes], I only asked two questions. I asked him if Mr. Hinx was a badass. He said, ‘Yes, he’s a badass.’ I said, ‘Well, is Mr. Hinx intelligent?’ He said, ‘Very.’ That’s what I like about Mr. Hinx. He’s very well-dressed and very well-mannered. I’m not just here to fight people. He has a sense of humour. He definitely knows what a metaphor is”
Seydoux then spoke of her being labelled as the latest Bond girl:
“I don’t consider myself a Bond girl. I think I’m not really the stereotyped Bond girl. I feel quite different. You can’t be like, ‘Oh, James.’ You have to find something else. She’s not a fighter, she’s a doctor. She fights in another way”
Daniel Craig returns in his fourth outing as Bond. Alongside returning cast members Rory Kinnear (Tanner), Ben Whishaw (Q), Naomie Harris (Miss Moneypenny) and Ralph Fiennes (M), Spectre will also star Andrew Scott as MI6 agent Denbigh, David Bautista as Mr. Hinx, Monica Bellucci as Lucia Sciarra, Léa Seydoux as Madeleine Swann and Christoph Waltz as Oberhauser.
Sam Mendes will also return to direct the screenplay written by John Logan. The film is set for release in UK theaters on October 23, 2015 and in US theaters on November 6, 2015.
Mendes’ “Skyfall,” the 23rd James Bond movie, took over $1.1 billion at the box office worldwide.
Principal photography has now begun. Spectre will be filming at Pinewood Studios, Mexico City, Rome, Tangier & Erfoud, Morocco, Sölden, Obertilliach and Lake Altausee, Austria.
A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.
