It goes without saying that Craig has now, even for his initial detractors, proven himself more than capable of playing Bond. For me, Craig’s Bond ranks highly, if not highest on the long list of stars that have played Fleming’s creation.
After the confused and convoluted Quantum of Solace, director Sam Mendes helmed the impressive Skyfall: far more emotionally affecting and involving than any previous Bond but still retaining the set-pieces to please the traditionalist. His latest installment, Spectre, looks set to be similarly dark, delving into Bond’s past.
The trailer, being a teaser, gives very little away but hints at an organisation, the titular Spectre, and Bond’s attempts to discover more whilst battling with the secrets of his past.
