James Bond is a franchise much like The Lord of the Rings or Star Wars in that whether or not you are a fan, you know more or less what it is, what it is about, who is in it. You know what “007” is, you know the phrases “My Precious” and “May the Force be with you”.
The James Bond franchise, which started out as a series of books penned by Ian Fleming, has had a long history on the silver screen with several actors depicting the famous suave British spy, who were all awarded with a signature Aston Martin for portraying Bond. The current “host” of the James Bond persona is British actor Daniel Craig, who will be playing the legendary character for at least five films, of which the upcoming and highly anticipated Spectre is the fourth.
With the premier of the film drawing close, trailers have been steadily released. And what happens when the GTA V community gets its hands on popular movie trailers?
They jump straight into the Rockstar Editor, a versatile game play recording and video editing suite designed specifically for GTA V and recreate the trailer in the game’s engine.
Now, James Bond has never been a pacifist, so we’ll be leaving out the line about “added GTA brand violence. The original trailer has plenty of it, not to mention intrigue, mystery, betrayal and gloom. Lots of gloom. The majority of characters are portrayed by custom models in the recreation, but you’ll see a few familiar faces along the way.
The new film, Spectre, will shine some (hopefully not too much) light on the mysterious organisation of the same name, which has been omnipresent in the franchise as the primary antagonist. Spectre is the Bond ‘verse’s Illuminati-esque super-rich, super-influential, super-secret and super-evil group of the world’s 0.1%’.
Are you guys looking forward to Spectre?
