Spectre plot to focus on James Bond's childhood


Story by Jack Foley

THE plot of new 007 movie Spectre will focus on James Bond’s childhood, according to director Sam Mendes.

Spectre is a movie entirely driven by Bond,” he reveals in a new behind-the-scenes Vlog. “He is on a mission from the very beginning.”

He continued that the film will continue to explore the themes first examined towards the end of Skyfall, which also offered insights into the character’s tragic upbringing in Scotland and the death of his parents.

“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,” added Mendes.

However, Bond’s ongoing back story will not come at the expense of some franchise favourites as Mendes also promised that Spectre will develop the characters of Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, and Ben Whishaw as Q – all introduced back to the franchise in Skyfall.

The vlog also reveals footage of various characters shooting scenes, including a car chase involving the legendary Aston Martin.

In related Spectre news, the first picture of Dave Bautista as the villainous assassin Mr Hinx was also publicly and features the Guardians of the Galaxy star holding a gun, sporting a beard and wearing a flat cap.
