The clip shows Craig, as Bond, attempting to rent a new car from Colbert, who plays a typical car rental employee for RentalCo where they “don’t just rent cars, we rental care.”
“I need a car really quickly,” Bond says. “I’m being chased by a number of assassins.”
“We all have things to do,” Colbert responds.
After searching under both Bond and Q’s name, the spy settles on a Chevy Malibu with a bit of child vomit in it and opts for the insurance because he is “driving it into a volcano.”
Variety’s Guy Lodge gave “Spectre” a positive review, calling it a treat for longtime fans and newcomers.
“A wealth of iconography — both incidental and integral — from the series’ founding chapters is revived here, making ‘Spectre’ a particular treat for 007 nerds, and a businesslike blast for everyone else,” wrote Lodge. “Spectre-cular B.O. awaits, though it remains to be seen whether the ‘Skyfall’ is the limit.”
The 24th film in the Bond franchise will need all of those longtime fans and newcomers if it hopes to turn a profit. Thanks to a price tag of $250 million and more than $100 million in marketing and promotion, “Spectre” will need to make $650 million just to break even.
