Oberhauser: Why did you come?

James Bond: Well, it's all a matter of perspective.
  • First James Bond film to open in an odd numbered year in sixteen years with the last having been The World Is Not Enough (1999). Before that, the last Bond film to open on an even numbered year was twenty-five years earlier with The Man with the Golden Gun (1974).
  • Daniel Craig will be the fifth actor to play James Bond and have action on ice or snow in a Bond movie with Sean Connery the only cinema James Bond actor not to appear in a snowbound action sequence (the scenes in Austria in Goldfinger (1964) are about as close as Connery got). There have been five Bond films to have a skiing action sequence:On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969), The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), For Your Eyes Only (1981), A View to a Kill (1985), and The World Is Not Enough (1999). The total is six if one counts The Living Daylights (1987) with its car on skis sequence. There are 007 earlier films if one counts the ice & snow sequences in Die Another Day (2002) which don't include any skiing action scenes. Spectre (2015) is the eight James Bond film in the official series to have a snowbound setting but the film does not include any skiing sequences.
  • When out in the Moroccan desert, the production had to make sure that everyone within a twenty mile radius knew to expect loud explosions, the locations department drove out to speak to nomad tribes and village folk. Indeed, local nomads were hired as guides and security throughout the explosions preparation and filming.
  • The SPECTRE henchman James Bond kills in the opening sequence has the surname 'Sciarra', a variation on the Mexican term for a hired assassin. Two of the characters in the film, Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci) and Marco Sciarra (Alessandro Cremona), the latter being the hit-man killed, have the last name of "Sciarra". According to website 'ScreenRant', " . . . in Italian . . . 'Sciarra' is a nickname for someone with a fiery, combative demeanor. The word actually began to be used as a name for those originating from Palermo, Sicily ([which is] not far from the volcano Mt. Etna)." In the earlier James Bond film You Only Live Twice (1967), SPECTRE operated out of a hollowed-out volcano lair headquarters.
  • First Bond film to be shot with anamorphic lenses since Die Another Day (2002). Moreover, this film is director Sam Mendes' first experience shooting with this format.
