Featurette: Meet The Women Of “Spectre”

EON Productions, MGM and Sony Pictures Entertainment have released a new video blog for the upcoming James Bond film “Spectre” with this one focusing on the two lead actresses in the film – Monica Bellucci and Lea Seydoux.

“Spectre” kicks off when 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.

In other Bond news, David Oyelowo will become the first black James Bond… albeit only in audiobook form. THR says that the “Selma” actor has been selected to voice 007 in the official Bond book “Trigger Mortis” by Anthony Horowitz.

Oyelowo’s voice casting was a direct invitation from the Ian Fleming estate and he says: “I am officially the only person on planet Earth who can legitimately say: ‘I am the new James Bond’ even saying that name is the cinematic equivalent of doing the ‘to be or not to be’ speech.” The book hits on September 8th.
