After it was officially announced that Daniel Craig would become the new James Bond, 007 fans (and most of the entire film community) lashed out at the producers with criticism. They said that Craig was too short for the role of a super agent (the height of the actor is 174 cm), that he had too cold eyes, that he was too “fat and clumsy.” But the producers didn’t change this decision. And they did the right thing. Four Bond films with Craig’s participation have raised almost more money in cinemas than all previous parts of the franchise combined. Today it is difficult to imagine someone else in this role!
Previously, movies about Agent 007 had almost no plot links between them; they were connected only by characters repeating from picture to picture and from time to time old opponents appearing on the horizon. Recall that in 2006 Daniel “replaced” the previous James Bond – Pierce Brosnan, making his debut in this role in “Casino Royale.” Starting with “Casino Royale,” the franchise actually tells one long story. Also, during the performance of the role of Bond, Graig did a lot of different stunts. Today about the famous “Spectrum.”
There is no question of computer special effects in this movie. It focuses on how all sorts of stunts were created on the set of the 24th James Bond movie, including the jogging of the lead actor Daniel Craig along the eaves of a high-rise building, scenes with helicopters flying low over busy streets, thrilling car chases along mountain serpentines and spectacular explosions… The action scenes were filmed in Austria, Mexico, and Morocco. According to second director Alexander Witt, it took a lot of risks to do something that no one else has been able to do before.
Another scene of the plane crash was filmed in Austria. Filmmakers worked on Lake Altaussee, in the communes of Obertilliach and Sölden. According to Chris Corbould, the most important dynamic scene in the Austrian region was also the most difficult, technically. “In the story, the plane had to glide in pursuit of criminals escaping in jeeps,” he says. – Before landing, the plane had to shoot down a tree with its wing. Having landed on the hill, he continues to move for some time, ripping the ground with screws. “
For the sake of a unique spectacle, the creators of the film “007: Spectrum” didn’t spare the expensive cars of the Aston Martin brand. During the filming of the picture, seven of these cars were broken at once. Their cost is estimated at 37 million dollars. Car chases and action scenes are never complete without crashed cars. This is especially true of action films about James Bond, whose trademark has invariably been sports super-cars of the Aston Martin brand. They are also unique in that they are specially produced for the filming of these films about agent 007. For the movie “007: Spectrum”, seven such cars were created with a total value of 37 million dollars, and all these rare cars with a catapult were destroyed on the set. According to stunt coordinator Gary Powell, the record was set for the most broken Aston Martins in a single film.
In addition, Jaguar Land Rover also created cars for the film. We are talking about a Jaguar based on the C-X75 concept with a five-liter V-shaped engine and SUVs Range Rover Sport SVR and Land Rover Defender.
