Empire has given us our first look at Dave Bautista’s (Guardians of the Galaxy) Mr. Hinx and Lea Seydoux’s Dr. Madeleine Swann (Blue Is the Warmest Color) from the upcoming Bond sequel Spectre with two new images from the hotly-anticipated film…
“When I came over to meet Sam [Mendes], I only asked two questions,” states Bautista. “I asked him if Mr. Hinx was a badass. He said, ‘Yes, he’s a badass.’ I said, ‘Well, is Mr. Hinx intelligent?’ He said, ‘Very.’ That’s what I like about Mr. Hinx. He’s very well-dressed and very well-mannered. I’m not just here to fight people. He has a sense of humour. He definitely knows what a metaphor is.”
“I don’t consider myself a Bond girl,” adds Seydoux. “I think I’m not really the stereotyped Bond girl. I feel quite different. You can’t be like, ‘Oh, James.’ You have to find something else. She’s not a fighter, she’s a doctor,” she adds. “She fights in another way.”
Meanwhile, a new featurette has also arrived online, which features director Sam Mendes talking about the film, as well as behind-the-scenes footage of Daniel Craig’s 007 alongside co-stars Ralph Fiennes (M), Naomie Harris (Moneypenny), and Ben Whishaw (Q).
Spectre is set for release in the UK on October 23rd 2015 in the UK and November 6th 2015 in the States. The film sees Sam Mendes (Skyfall) directing Bond veterans Daniel Craig as James Bond, Rory Kinnear as Tanner, Ben Whishaw as Q, Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny, Ralph Fiennes as M and Jesper Christensen as Mr. White, alongside franchise newcomers Andrew Scott (Pride) as Denbigh, Lea Seydoux (Blue is the Warmest Colour) as Madeleine Swann, Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy) as Mr. Hinx, Monica Bellucci (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice) as Lucia Sciarra and Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained) as Oberhauser.
