Although "Skyfall" left its eager following waiting until April to see the first official photo set and it was May before the teaser poster was revealed, SPECTRE is pursuing a fast-paced marketing strategy to rival even "Quantum of Solace". Today, Tuesday 17th March, marked the release of a US Quad poster and a US One Sheet in two varieties, pipping its predecessor by close to two months. One chromo, that still has a glint of colour in an action-ready 007's eyes; the other, colour, with Craig clad all in black and touting his Walther and sporting a bared holster ready for action.
The parallels to Roger Moore's debut keep coming - as well as some locations that pay homage to "Live And Let Die", the teaser poster is reminiscent of the publicity still of Moore, photographed on location in Jamaica, when 007 stages his raid on the Kananga poppy farm. Sam Mendes has previously remarked that "Live And Let Die" was his first introduction to Bond as a youth and remains one of his favourite films.
The first "Casino Royale" teaser poster was first leaked on the internet in late April, and officially unveiled on May 2nd 2006, after filming started on January 30th 2006. Even quicker was the first teaser poster for 'Quantum of Solace', which was unveiled on 7th February 2008, just a few weeks after filming started on January 3rd 2008.
The next date for readers to mark in their calendars is Saturday 28th of March, when the first SEPCTRE teaser trailer is expected to be released. Bond fans can also look forward to full coverage of the 24th 007 adventure's production period at MI6, with shooting continuing in Mexico City this week.
