The release today of the official music video for Sam Smith’s Spectre theme song, “Writing’s on the Wall,” was timed to coincide with Global James Bond Day. James Bond Day celebrates the anniversary of the launch of the Bond franchise with the release of Dr. No back in 1962 and was first celebrated in 2012 on the film franchise’s 50th anniversary, with Adele’s Skyfall theme song debuting that day.
Smith’s “Writing’s on the Wall” video features new clips of Daniel Craig as Bond chasing villains, staring coolly into the camera, and in a steam scene with the gorgeous Monica Bellucci. It, of course, also features incredible vocals by Sam Smith singing lyrics that tap into Bond’s vulnerability.
Spectre opens on November 6, 2015.
The Spectre Plot:
A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond (Daniel Craig) 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 (Lea 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.
