'Spectre' trailer pays homage to classic Bond

I haven't blogged about James Bond since last December, when I posted Tales of two trailers: James Bond and Star Wars.  A new trailer came out last week, which gives me the perfect opportunity to write about my favorite honorary Crazy Eddie in cinema.

Without any further ado, I present the New SPECTRE Trailer.

Watch the new trailer for SPECTRE. A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as SPECTRE.

Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott), the new head of the Centre for National Security, questions Bond’s actions and challenges the relevance of MI6, led by M (Ralph Fiennes). Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) to help him seek out Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White (Jesper Christensen), who may hold the clue to untangling the web of SPECTRE. As the daughter of an assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot.

As Bond ventures towards the heart of SPECTRE, he learns of a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks, played by Christoph Waltz.

Released in the UK on October 26, and in the US on November 6, 2015.
I caught a lot of references to Bond films from the 1960s through 1990s in the trailer.  I could list them myself, but I'm outsourcing them to Alltime Movies' SPECTRE Trailer | Top 5 Things We Learned.

It's here! The first full trailer for SPECTRE, and boy it's a doozy! Join Jamie as he analyzes the fine details and gleans everything we can learn about James Bond's new adventure.
I caught the "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" references in the score, too.  If so, then audiences might get a "save the world" plot the likes of which we haven't seen since "Die Another Day" in 2002.  The Daniel Craig Bond movies have been much more modest in scope.  Even if SPECTRE doesn't deliver on those implied stakes, I'm still looking forward to watching the movie and writing an an analysis like Crazy Eddie at the Movies 4--the science fiction in Skyfall becomes science fact.  Stay tuned.
