MEXICO CITY, Nov. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The new 007 film, SPECTRE, has come to Mexico, and to celebrate its partnership, Interjet has modified the design of two of its planes for the first time in its 10-year history, to introduce the latest James Bond chapter.
The Airbus 320 theme planes that are part of the Interjet fleet made their first flight on October 30th. Two days prior to the premiere in Mexico, one of the planes covered the flight from New York to Mexico City while the other plane flies to cities such as Huatulco, Culiacan and Bogota. Both aircrafts bear the title of the film Spectre.
Once the movie debuts, all Interjet flights will play behind the scenes 007 materials for six weeks for its passengers.
In the framework of the 50th anniversary of the saga, as of October 15, Interjet has also been sponsoring the Designing 007 exhibition in Mexico, which focuses on the style of the James Bond franchise which can only be seen in these films. The exhibition includes more than 400 items ranging from scripts, weapons, photographs and costumes to other one-of-a-kind objects.
Miguel Aleman Magnani, Executive President of Interjet, the Mexican airline which operates in Mexico, the Unites States, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba and Guatemala said, "It is an honor to partner with one of the world's most widely-recognized franchises which, for the first time ever, will highlight our country's cultural heritage and tourism potential."
Interjet was also excited to be one of the hosts of yesterday's Sony Pictures Entertainment, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and EON Productions SPECTRE Premiere of the Americas in Mexico City, where the film's stunning opening sequence, set amidst Day of the Dead festivities, was filmed.
A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond (Daniel Craig) 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 (Lea 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.
Sam Mendes returns to direct SPECTRE, with Daniel Craig reprising his role as 007 for the fourth time. SPECTRE is produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli. The screenplay is by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade and Jez Butterworth, with a story by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade.
