The much-awaited new Bond movie, Spectre, starring Daniel Craig as the world’s most famous secret agent, releases nationwide at Ster-Kinekor IMAX theatres on 27 November .
Ster-Kinekor describes the IMAX version as the “shaken” experience, versus the “stirred” experience for those who enjoy the finer, more refined things that James Bond symbolises, like the VIP Lounge treatment at Cine Prestige venues.
During the film’s opening weekend, from 27 to 28 November, ticket-holders who have booked for shows between 11am and 8pm will receive a Goodibox filled with products, vouchers and samples from brands like Jaguar, Landrover, Himalaya Herbals, Blink, McVite’s, Double Up and the Blue Marlin Hotel.
For Bond fans watching the film at Cine Prestige at Cavendish in Cape Town over the opening weekend, look out for Photo Bomb to capture a 007-styled selfie.
Skyfall director Sam Mendes is behind the camera once again for Spectre, with star Daniel Craig marking his fourth portrayal of the iconic British spy. Joining Craig are Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny and Ben Whishaw as Q.
New cast members joining the crew include Christoph Waltz, Monica Bellucci and Lea Seydoux. Spectre is produced by Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, from a script by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade.
A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as Spectre.
Meanwhile, back in London, Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott), the new head of the Centre for National Security, questions Bond’s actions and challenges the relevance of MI6, led by M (Ralph Fiennes). Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) to help him seek out Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White (Jesper Christensen), who may hold the clue to untangling the web of Spectre. As the daughter of an assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot.
As Bond ventures towards the heart of Spectre, he learns of a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks, played by Christoph Waltz.
