James Bond may be operating off the reservation based on footage of “Spectre” that Sony teased as part of its CinemaCon presentation Wednesday to theater owners.
The brief scene finds 007 (Daniel Craig) in his sparsely furnished apartment with Eve Moneypenny (Naomie Harris), as she alludes to an event that happened in “Mexico” that left many in MI-4 thinking Bond went “one step too far.”
She goes on to say, “I think you’ve got a secret. Something you won’t tell any one because you don’t trust anyone.”
The sexual tension between them is palpable and for a moment it appears that Bond may kiss his fellow agent. But there are also suggestions of a greater danger, with Bond referencing a “pale king” he must grapple with in Mexico.
There was also a key plot detail revealed that Sony asked audience members not to spoil.
Sony is distributing the Eon and MGM release. “Spectre” is directed by Sam Mendes, who was credited with bringing a greater visual sophistication to the spy franchise with “Skyfall.” It co-stars Christoph Waltz, Monica Bellucci, and Ralph Fiennes and debuts on Nov. 6.
