New Earlier UK Release Date For Spectre

New Earlier UK Release Date For Spectre
But it's definitely Sam Mendes' final Bond

20 July 2015  |  Written by Owen Williams  |  Source: BBC



First it was October 23. Then it was November 6. But now Spectre, the 24th official James Bond adventure, has finally settled on a UK release date. It'll receive its world premiere in London on October 26, and open the same night in the rest of the country.
"For the first time ever, the film will open on the same night at cinemas across the UK and Ireland," said distributor Sony Pictures in a press release. Unusually that means Spectre will be out on a Monday, which will make the figures for its opening "weekend" interesting. But with Skyfall raking in well north of a billion dollars worldwide, that should prove an insignificant issue.
Elsewhere in Spectre news, director Sam Mendes has confirmed/insisted to - of all places - the BBC's Test Match Special that this Bond will certainly be his last. He said that after Skyfall, of course, but was persuaded to return after the producers twisted his arm.
This time, however, he seems to determined to move on. "I said no to [this] one and then ended up doing it," he told the cricketers, "but... I don't think I could go down that road again. This was an enormous undertaking, and a bigger movie than Skyfall; it's shot in more places. You do have to put everything else on hold. It's more a lifestyle choice than a job." But it's also, he clarifies, "a fantastic life-changing thing".
Finally, Mendes has teased that Spectre's theme song is finished, but declined to reveal who's recorded it. We should get clarification of that sooner rather than later. "You won't have to wait long..." C'mon, it's obviously Motörhead.
With Mendes back directing a script that has been written by John Logan, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, Spectre sees Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw and Naomie Harris, as M, Q and Moneypenny respectively, with new recruits Christoph Waltz as Oberhauser, Dave Bautista as Mr. Hinx, Bellucci as Lucia Sciarra, Lea Seydoux as Madeleine Swann, Stephanie Sigman as Estrella and Andrew Scott as Denbigh. Oh, and Daniel Craig as James Bond, obvs. As we said, it’ll hit British and Irish screens on October 26 before heading to the States and elsewhere a whole eleven days later.

'I do think this is probably it': Sam Mendes rules out directing another James Bond movie after Spectre release

'I do think this is probably it': Sam Mendes rules out directing another James Bond movie after Spectre release

The latest James Bond movie, entitled Spectre, is yet to be released but already its director Sam Mendes has decided it'll be the last film of its kind he'll direct.
Sam, 49, is keen to return to theatre work when the film is out on October 26 despite the overwhelming success he's had during his short time with the franchise.
Talking to the BBC's Jonathan Agnew on Radio 5, he said: 'I said ‘No’ to the last one and then ended up doing it and was pilloried by all my friends.

'I do think this is probably it. I think five years for the two movies, it feels now almost, even though we’ve only just finished shooting it, like one big experience.'
The award-winning director and producer went on to describe the job as 'life-changing' but he had to make sacrifices in order to take it on. 
'It was a fantastic life-changing thing, but I don’t think I could go down that road again. It’s more a lifestyle choice than a job. You do have to put everything else on hold.'
Life-changing: Sam, 49, is grateful for his involvement in the franchise after having had to sacrifice other aspects of his life in order to take the role on

Talking about why he's decided to throw the towel in after five years, he explained: 'I’m happiest rehearsing a play or editing a movie, and I think that when I’ve finished a movie I generally want to be back in a theatre environment again.
'It feels like home, it feels controllable after the chaos of a movie set. But it won’t be long before I want to do another film, and I’m very, very fortunate to be able to go back and forth between the two.' 
MailOnline have reached out to Sam's representatives. 
His most recent theatre production is the West End adaptation of Roald Dahl's children's book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory which landed at the Theatre Royal on Drury Lane, London, in 2014 and is still running.

Spectre is only Sam's second 007 film with Skyfall - which was released in 2012 - his first.
Daniel Craig steps into the lead's shoes for the fourth time and he stars alongside Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Christoph Waltz and Lea Seydoux.
Spectre will premiere in the UK on October 26 and will open in cinemas across the country on the same night in a box-office first.
It was shot at Pinewood Studios and filmed on locations in London, Mexico City, Rome and Tangier and Erfoud, in Morocco. 
That was quick: Sam has only directed two 007 movies - Skyfall and Spectre - but he has ruled out doing another
