Spectre releases the teasingest of all teasers, but I’m intrigued…
I may not be the pop culture expert I present myself as on Laser Time, but I’ve officially seen a lot of fucking movies. If I had to guess, I’d say at least 300,000 of them. Before you bother to go and check my math, what I’m trying to say that I’m kind of embarrassed that only six or seven of those is a Bond film. The first 3 Connerys, 1 stupid Brosnan movie… Jesus, just remembered I haven’t even seen Quantam of Solace yet. I really suck at Bond.
That confessional out of the way, I’ve really liked the Daniel Craig era Bond’s. Kind of the perfect balance between the series special brand of grandiosity mixed with a grounded practicality the kids can’t seem to stop talking about these days. I was just chatting with someone the other day about how much better we thought Casino Royale has gotten with age, plus I was pretty floored by Skyfall, and part of that undoubtedly has to do with knowing very little about what to expect. Why not go into Spectre with the same ignorance?!
Like the Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation trailer, I want to say this trailer came out of nowhere, but I think Marvel’s stupid marketing tendencies of have seen sixteen teasers that point to a countdown clock that unlocks a Facebook page that exchanges Likes and Shares for a time and date when the trailer will premiere during Agents of Shield *deep breath* has made me feel like a studio needs to tell me 700 times when to expect its trailers. Ranting aside, I was just thinking about watching a Bond movie this weekend before this trailer went live (the lady’s out of town!) Let me know in the comments if you have a suggestion as to which one. Oooo, which one does he play Mario Kart in?!
