James Bond 'Spectre' Video Pits Aston Martin Against Jaguar Throughout Rome

We will have to wait a few more months to enjoy the latest installment of Daniel Craig as James Bond, but at least we get to enjoy the sight of exotic cars screaming through Rome.

Entertainment Weekly’s Chris Lee posted the following video taken from the James Bond YouTube channel, which features a behind-the-scenes peek at the movie “Spectre” that opens nationwide on Nov. 6.

Now this brief video has plenty to offer, namely lovely images of Rome at night, and some truly brilliant automobiles.

The YouTube description explains that the video “focuses on a car chase in Rome between Bond’s Aston Martin DB10 and the Jaguar C-X75.”

Now we might not have an idea as far as the plot points unfolding on the screen. We do know the Aston Martin will be helmed by Bond, who has a way of bringing various cities to life like no other fictional character.

The Jaguar will feature the sizable Dave Bautista who plays Mr. Hinx, who we imagine is a bit annoyed with Bond at this point in the movie.

Now director Sam Mendes does offer, via the video, that we are witnessing “a cat and mouse game through the nighttime streets of Rome at great speed between two of the fastest cars in the world, neither of which you have ever seen before.” 

We may just get a sample of the movie, but it promises the same kind of frenetic energy that characterizes so much of the franchise.

With that, we once again get to see an iconic city under peculiar circumstances. You may not be able to take one of these cars out at full speed in Rome, but at least you get to witness what that looks like thanks to this video.
