“SPECTRE: SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion”
After an extremely successful advertising campaign on “SKYFALL”, Empire Design have been retained by EON for the latest Bond extravaganza “SPECTRE” & it’s fair to say they have come up trumps again. This original “Coming Soon” Advance US one sheet for Sam Mendes’ second Bond film has a real retro feel about it; printed in a black & white style (if you look closely the only colour is a hint of steely blue in Craig’s eyes) exuding a strong “Live and Let Die” / Roger Moore vibe as Daniel Craig mimics Moore’s stance and rocks the dark turtleneck sweater look with shoulder holster accessory. These “Coming Soon” advance posters are always sought after and often give an indication of the coming film’s tone, and it’s fair to say this instalment upped the quips quota. Originally rolled (as issued) this lightly used example displays and presents to excellent effect. Guaranteed original this represents an extremely collectable piece of James Bond cinematic movie memorabilia.
Trivia: Dave Bautista is the fourth actor with a professional wrestling background to play a James Bond villain, following in the footsteps of Harold Sakata (Goldfinger (1964)), Peter Fanene Maivia (You Only Live Twice (1967), and Pat Roach (Never Say Never Again (1983).
