The first trailer is released for Spectre.
On a flight from England to Mexico, Eon’s film crew triggers an international air safety alert by going on a drunken rampage. Hi Fly sent a report to Eon, detailing the film crew’s misdeeds: they removed a safety pin from one of the aircraft’s doors; they vomited and urinated in the aisles; they flouted the aircraft’s strict no-smoking ban; and they verbally abused cabin crew and other passengers. After the plane landed, it appeared to workers that a bunch of wild animals had gone through the plane.
The behaviour of a handful of crew members got out of hand and made things very unpleasant for their fellow passengers. Eon has apologised to all the crew members who had to endure this intolerable behaviour.
Smith posts a black-and-white photo of a hand wearing a ring emblazoned with Spectre‘s Octopus logo, a hint that he will sing the theme song for the upcoming James Bond film.
Smith confirms that he will sing the Spectre theme song, which is called Writing’s on the Wall.
Smith releases the full audio of the Spectre Bond theme, Writing’s on the Wall.
I wanted to bring out something timelessly classic.
The Writing on the Wall becomes the first ever Bond song to reach the number one spot within the UK charts. The song track is propelling to a combined sales and streams of 70,000 copies, outranking Justin Bieber’s What Do You Mean by at least 13,000. The only other Bond theme songs that have come close to Smith’s is Adele’s Skyfall and Duran Duran’s View To A Kill.
Out of all the songs I’ve brought out in my life, I was not expecting this to even chart in the top 10, let alone number one. It’s unbelievable.
Sony Pictures releases the final trailer for Spectre.
Oberhouser (Waltz): Why did you come?
Bond: I came here to kill you.
Oberhauser: And I thought you came here to die.
Bond: Well, it’s all a matter of perspective.
Smith releases the video for Writing’s on the Wall.
