What began as a short vignette meant to introduce the Bond character was expanded into a full title sequence.
All of the elements were shot on black and white film and the negatives were then hand-colored and rephotographed along with the title plates to create the final composite, with Binder's stickers becoming the centerpiece of one of the most beloved and best-known title sequences in film history.
And while the dots can be appreciated as a purely visceral design statement, their connection to the Barrel sequence endows them greater meaning, each dot becoming a bullet either intended for or delivered by Also an American import, Brownjohn migrated to London in the early '60s on advice from close friend and typographer Bob Gill.
At the time, London boasted a vibrant postwar advertising and film economy with an appetite for American talent, on the heels of a similar boom in the US a decade prior.
Brownjohn became familiar with Harry Saltzman through social circles and was invited to title Bond based on his growing reputation as an art director, having worked with advertising giants J.
Walter Thompson and McCann-Erickson. His emphasis on experimental design and typography was apparent in Brownjohn's own work, himself having credited Moholy-Nagy for encouraging him to experiment with projecting images onto forms — a technique at the center of each of his Bond titles.
A longtime advocate and practitioner of experimental typography, Brownjohn believed that thoughtful and provocative type compositions could resound as well as any image or work of art.
The only real advance… has been the use of type not as an adjunct to an illustration or the image but in its use as the image itself.
Our age: that of the film Instead of using typography — as hitherto — merely as an objective means, the attempt is now being made to incorporate it and the potential effects of its subjective existence creatively into the contents.
Unlike Binder's Dr. In From Russia With Love , Brownjohn projects the film titles as slides directly onto the body of a backlit belly dancer — a theme revisited later in the film as a symbolic divide between the civilized West and exotic East.
The title cards themselves are static, inheriting their motion from the gyrations of the dancer. Brownjohn also included several shots of a second belly dancer, who became camera shy and walked off the shoot early on.
A third performer was used for face closeups, as the producers did not believe Mendez to be pretty enough. Brownjohn has claimed that his inspiration for the sequence came from watching students walk across the path of a projector during a lecture he once gave; others say that it came to him during the end title crawl of an early screening of the film.
I chose sex. Brownjohn, who abhorred storyboards and scripts, pitched the concept to Saltzman and Broccoli by removing his own shirt and standing in front of a slide projector.
Reproducing this technique proved more difficult on set, as the amount of light required for the projections to register on 35mm film far surpassed the capabilities of conventional units.
Brownjohn further evolved his techniques in Goldfinger , this time projecting footage from the film directly onto actress Margaret Nolan, painted gold from head to toe, matching her curves with the projected action.
Knees become hills that Bond must traverse, a golf ball makes a perfect drop into Ms. Saltzman and Broccoli were so pleased that they offered to establish an independent production company for the sole purpose of creating Bond title sequences under his watch — an offer which he ultimately declined, for unknown reasons.
Maurice Binder returned to the franchise in to direct the titles to Thunderball , which featured several sequence firsts: the use of optical compositing techniques, in which elements filmed separately are combined by layering the negatives together, and the use of kinetic typography, with the title cards rippling on and off, and — because it would happen eventually — the first appearance of full nudes in a Bond film.
Binder adopted Brownjohn's burlesque silhouettes and made them even more provocative while contextualizing them in the same modernist aesthetic he first applied to Dr.
No , integrating them into minimal compositions with bold colors and clean, justified typesetting. If there were a point of origin for the modern Bond title sequence, it would be Thunderball.
This is due not only to its abundant silhouettes and thematic backdrops, but also its compositions and assembly, creating a self-contained graphic world that bestows the sequence with a dreamlike quality common to all Bond title sequences to follow.
Binder also introduces a narrative thread and the element of danger in the form of divers pursuing their female counterparts, giving the sequence greater relevance to the film.
And while both he and Brownjohn had previously incorporated thematic elements into their sequences, Thunderball is the first to holistically embrace a theme as its premise, with water seeping into every nuance of its design.
Its composites are sophisticated and fluid, often blending together several animated elements at once — no small feat for film machinery circa The theme is exotic and unsubtle, with geisha girls sulking in front of dramatic close-up shots of erupting volcanos — both essential plot elements, and in Binder's hands a giveaway visual double entendre.
He loosens his Modernist belt a notch, breaking code by using a theme font for the primary title cards.
Binder continues to refine his compositing techniques in his next few sequences, notably introducing scale differences to the tradition's vernacular in On Her Majesty's Secret Service , by placing Bond on the hand of a clock.
He also experiments with optical distortions and op-art animation, both popular memes at the time. Diamonds Are Forever Live and Let Die is perhaps Binder's boldest sequence and still the most aggressive entry in the franchise, mixing blatant nudity and dramatic lighting with plenty of fire, seen mostly through the eyes of a burning skull.
Hard edits and crowded compositions work in concert with Paul McCartney's iconic theme song, matching its frantic pacing at the onset with fast action set against reds and oranges, then cooling to a palette of blue sparks and smoke as the track slows, and returning again to warmer hues as the sequence closes in the hands of a woman.
In Live and Let Die , Binder employs a similar, yet more refined type animation technique as in Thunderball , warping the text as though seen through water.
He further explores refractions in his title sequence for The Man With the Golden Gun , this time manipulating not only the title cards but also the background, projecting images of classic nudes and the film's iconic Golden Gun through pools of rippling water.
Binder's titles for The Spy Who Loved Me come at the tail of one of the most famous Bond pre-title action sequences, in which , incarnated by Roger Moore, is ambushed by Russian agents and skis off a cliff during the ensuing chase, freefalling for 20 seconds before pulling his Union Jack parachute.
In a seamless transition into the title sequence, the parachute is caught by a pair of hands as silhouettes of a woman and Bond himself — in his first such appearance in a title sequence — bounce through the screen in ultra-slow motion, setting the pace for the rest of the sequence with help from Carly Simon's smoky theme song.
Scale relationships are mostly irrelevant in this sequence, with women trampolining in front of abstract details of guns, while others perform gymnastics on the barrels of actual guns.
Moonraker Binder carries over his affair with trampolines to Moonraker in , this time orienting the silhouetted women around the frame to give the impression of zero-gravity.
He also uses graphic animation within the sequence — something he hadn't done since On Her Majesty's Secret Service a decade prior. For Your Eyes Only In Octopussy — Binder's eleventh Bond sequence — he departs somewhat from the format of his past few sequences and uses a technique previously only used by Brownjohn: projecting images onto female forms, only this time the projections originate from lasers — a novel technology in He further uses lasers to bisect clouds of smoke, creating ephemeral backgrounds over which silhouettes fly about in slow motion.
Binder met head-on with the mids in his next sequence, A View to a Kill , which features the franchise's only top-billboard theme song by the pop duo Duran Duran working with longtime Bond composer John Barry — a commission awarded to them after John Taylor, their bassist, met Cubby Broccoli at a party and asked him, "When are you going to get someone decent to do one of your theme songs?
Binder matches Duran Duran's high-energy pop theme with an equally loud palette of neon paint, applied to guns and women and filmed under blacklight.
His trademark silhouettes are present but subdued, taking a backseat to cross-dissolved vignettes of fire, ice, and neon psychedelia. The Living Daylights In the Living Daylights Binder again works with water distortions and optical mattes but softens his color palette dramatically from his previous entry, this time working primarily with shades of red, blue, and yellow, overlapping to become tertiary combinations.
Binder's final Bond entry, Licence to Kill , is the most sophisticated of his sequences from a technical standpoint. He returns again to many of his favorite themes, but with a much cleaner and more refined execution.
This is certainly due in part to rapid advancements in film technology at the end of the decade, with nonlinear editing and digital compositing fast replacing the analog solutions he had mastered over his year tenure with the franchise.
Ironically, only at the the advent of the digital age did it become apparent that many themes frequented by Binder — his silhouettes, image composites, and creative titling — were ideas often several decades ahead of the technological means.
And while girls, guns, smoke, and steam may be the things for which he is best remembered, it is perhaps his ability to understand both his audience and his material, and deliver to both with consistency and novelty, that his popularity has endured.
No more and no less. Girl number one is pro-Bond. She stays around roughly through the first reel of the picture. Then she is bumped off by the enemy, preferably in Bond's arms.
Maurice Binder's passing in coincided with the departure of longtime Bond director John Glen and Timothy Dalton as , and along with a tangle of legal disputes between EON and MGM, the franchise went into a record six-year hiatus.
Wilson since Moonraker. Eager to modernize, a new Bond was enlisted in the form of Pierce Brosnan — a popular actor on both sides of the Atlantic whose classic British charm and genre flexibility made him an obvious candidate for the job.
Similar shake-ups were made across the board, with a host of new talent on screen and behind the scenes. To this end, popular music video director Daniel Kleinman was invited to join the franchise as the new watch for the Bond title tradition.
Having experimented extensively with special effects and post-production in his previous work, he seemed a logical successor to Binder, whose embrace of technology only increased as the new millenium neared.
Prior to his work as a director, Kleinman attended the Hornsey College of Art in Haringey, England, and worked as a storyboard artist on music videos in the early '80s.
He moved on to a successful career in advertising in the '90s, where he earned the title of Most Awarded Director in the World by the industry standard Gunn Report, with similar accolades from many other publications and foundations.
Whereas Binder and Brownjohn shared a modernist aesthetic influenced in part by the Bauhaus school of design prevalent in the '60s and again popular in the '80s, Kleinman's design approach was at once eclectic and holistic, using new technologies to create layered montages of live action, animated, and graphic elements with a narrative foundation.
His background in music video direction also gave his work a tangible relationship to sound, further strengthening the link between Bond sequences and their theme songs.
Kleinman first updated the iconic Bond Barrel sequence, which had gone through several previous iterations as new actors were brought into the role of , but had always used the same pinhole gun barrel photograph shot by Binder for Dr.
No , making it the franchise's longest-standing visual trope. This new Barrel sequence opened the 17th Bond film, GoldenEye — a title which Fleming borrowed from a counterintelligence operation he had helmed during WWII — and before the action had even begun, audiences knew they were in for a new Bond experience.
Kleinman further delivered with his freshman entry into the Bond title canon, beginning with the inside of a reflective, photorealistic gun barrel, in what seems a deliberate contrast to the traditional Barrel seen just minutes before, perhaps to ease the audience into the new Kleinman vernacular.
Yet there is not much easing to be done. From the outset, his vision for the Bond titles included a third dimension, both as a topical treatment and, more importantly, as a means to dive even deeper into the murky dreamworlds of the Bond titles.
Not to build on the history of what makes Bond Bond and not just another action film would be a disservice to the franchise and the audience.
Bond's plane is hijacked by Goldfinger, but Bond struggles with him, and shoots out a window, creating an explosive decompression, killing Goldfinger.
The organisation demands a ransom for the return of the bombs. The pair suspect a rich playboy, Emilio Largo , who is soon discovered to be SPECTRE's Number Two, ordered by the secretive Number One to direct the operation, and search the area around his yacht and then the area where they think the yacht may have travelled.
After finding the plane—but without the nuclear devices on board—the two agents arrange for Largo's yacht to be tracked and ambushed once the bombs are being moved by Largo.
Upon his arrival, Bond is contacted by Aki , assistant to the Japanese secret service leader Tiger Tanaka.
Bond follows the trail to Blofeld's island headquarters and spaceport , while the spacecraft, Bird One , attacks a Soviet capsule.
Tanaka's ninja troops attack the island, while Bond manages to distract Blofeld and create a diversion which allows him to open the hatch, letting in the ninjas.
During the battle, Osato is killed by Blofeld, who activates the base's self-destruct system and escapes. Bond, Kissy, Tanaka, and the surviving ninjas escape through the cave tunnel before it explodes, and are rescued by submarine.
Bond breaks into the solicitors office and establishes Blofeld is corresponding with the London College of Arms. Posing as an emissary of the college, Bond meets Blofeld, who has established a clinical allergy-research institute atop Piz Gloria in the Swiss Alps.
Bond soon establishes that Blofeld is brainwashing his patients to distribute bacteriological warfare agents throughout various parts of the world.
Bond escapes from the clinic after Blofeld identifies him as the British agent. Bond arranges a raid on the clinic using men from Draco's organisation.
The raid is a success, although Blofeld escapes. Bond marries Tracy, but she is murdered shortly afterwards by Irma Bunt, Blofeld's partner.
Bond is tasked with investigating a major diamond smuggling ring which begins in Africa and runs through Holland and the UK to the United States.
Disguised as professional smuggler and murderer Peter Franks, Bond travels to Amsterdam to meet contact Tiffany Case : he is given the diamonds and travels on to the US, where he is met by Felix Leiter.
Bond moves through the chain, which leads to the Whyte House, a casino-hotel owned by the reclusive billionaire Willard Whyte.
Bond follows the diamonds to a pick-up by Bert Saxby, Whyte's head of security, and then onto a research laboratory owned by Whyte, where he finds that a satellite is being built by a laser refraction specialist, Professor Dr.
Suspecting Whyte, Bond tries to confront him, but instead meets Blofeld, who captures the agent and explains to him that the satellite can blow up nuclear missiles.
Blofeld admits that he intends to auction it to the highest bidder. Bond escapes and frees the captive Whyte and they establish that Blofeld is using an offshore oil rig as his base.
Bond attacks the rig, stopping Blofeld's operation and dispersing his organisation. James Bond is sent to investigate the murder of three British MI6 agents, all of whom have been killed within 24 hours.
He discovers the victims were all separately investigating the operations of Dr. Kananga, the dictator of a small Caribbean island, San Monique.
He also establishes that Kananga also acts as Mr. Big, a ruthless and cunning American gangster. Upon visiting San Monique, Bond determines that Kananga is producing two tons of heroin and is protecting the poppy fields by exploiting locals' fear of voodoo and the occult.
Through his alter ego, Mr. Big, Kananga plans to distribute the heroin free of charge at his Fillet of Soul restaurants, which will increase the number of addicts.
Bond is captured by Kananga, but he escapes, killing Kananga and destroying the poppy crop. After receiving a golden bullet with James Bond's code "" etched into its surface M relieves Bond of a mission locating a British scientist, Gibson, who has invented the "Solex agitator", a device to harness solar power , thereby solving the energy crisis.
The bullet signifies Bond is a target of assassin Francisco Scaramanga and Bond sets out unofficially to find him.
From a spent golden bullet, Bond tracks Scaramanga to Macau , where he sees Scaramanga's mistress collecting golden bullets at a casino.
Bond follows her to Hong Kong, where he witnesses the murder of Gibson and the theft of the Solex agitator. Bond is subsequently assigned to retrieve the agitator and assassinate Scaramanga.
Bond meets with Hai Fat, a wealthy Thai entrepreneur suspected of arranging Gibson's murder, and is captured, but subsequently escapes.
He tracks Scaramanga to an island in Red Chinese waters, where the two men fight and Bond kills the assassin. Bond is tasked with investigating the disappearance of British and Soviet ballistic missile submarines and the subsequent offer to sell a submarine tracking system.
The pair track the plans across Egypt and identify the person responsible for the thefts as shipping tycoon, scientist and anarchist Karl Stromberg.
Bond and Amasova follow a suspicious tanker owned by Stromberg and establish it is responsible for the missing submarines; the submarine in which they are travelling is also captured by Stromberg.
Stromberg plans to destroy Moscow and New York, triggering nuclear war; he planned to then establish a new civilisation.
Bond escapes, freeing the submariners captured from the other submarines and follows Stromberg to his headquarters, where he shoots the tycoon and a torpedo destroys the base.
A Drax Industries Moonraker space shuttle on loan is hijacked and Bond is ordered to investigate.
Bond meets the owner of the company, Hugo Drax and one of Drax's scientists, Dr. Holly Goodhead. Bond follows the trail to Venice, where he establishes that Drax is manufacturing a nerve gas deadly to humans, but harmless to animals.
Bond again meets Goodhead and finds out that she is a CIA agent. Bond travels to the Amazon looking for Drax's research facility, where he is captured.
He and Goodhead pose as pilots on one of six space shuttles being sent by Drax to a hidden space station. There Bond finds out that Drax plans to destroy all human life by launching fifty globes containing the toxin into the Earth's atmosphere.
Bond and Goodhead disable the radar jammer hiding the station from Earth and the US sends a platoon of Marines in a military space shuttle.
During the battle, Bond kills Drax and his station is destroyed. After Havelock is murdered by Gonzales, a Cuban hit-man, Bond is ordered to find out who hired Gonzales.
While investigating, Bond is captured, but Gonzales is subsequently killed by Havelock's daughter Melina, and she and Bond escape. Bond identifies one of those present with Gonzales as Emile Leopold Locque and so follows a lead to Italy and meets his contact, Luigi Ferrara, and a well-connected Greek businessman and intelligence informant, Aris Kristatos.
Kristatos tells Bond that Locque is employed by Milos Columbo, Kristatos' former organised crime partner. After Ferrara is murdered—and the evidence points to Columbo—Bond is captured by men working for Columbo.
An identical egg appears at auction and Bond establishes the buyer, exiled Afghan prince, Kamal Khan is working with Orlov, a renegade Soviet general, who is seeking to expand Soviet borders into Europe.
Bond meets Octopussy , a wealthy woman who leads the Octopus cult. Bond finds out that Orlov has been supplying Khan with priceless Soviet treasures, replacing them with replicas, while Khan has been smuggling the real versions into the West, via Octopussy's circus troupe.
Bond infiltrates the circus, and finds that Orlov replaced the Soviet treasures with a nuclear warhead, primed to explode at a US Air Force base in West Germany.
The explosion would trigger Europe into seeking disarmament, in the belief that the bomb was an American one that was detonated by accident, leaving the West's borders open to Soviet invasion.
Bond deactivates the warhead and then he returns to India, joining an assault on Khan's palace. Bond investigates millionaire industrialist Max Zorin, who is trying to corner the world market in microchips.
He establishes that Zorin was previously trained and financed by the KGB, but has now gone rogue. Zorin unveils to a group of investors his plan to destroy Silicon Valley which will give him a monopoly in the manufacturing of microchips.
Bond uncovers Zorin's plan is to detonate explosives beneath the lakes along the Hayward and San Andreas faults, which will cause them to flood.
A larger bomb is also on site in the mine to destroy a "geological lock" that prevents the two faults from moving at the same time.
Bond destroys the bomb, and subsequently kills Zorin. Koskov is subsequently abducted from the safe-house and Bond is ordered to kill Pushkin.
Bond tracks down Milovy and establishes she is Koskov's girlfriend and that the defection was staged. He subsequently finds out that Koskov is a friend of the arms dealer Brad Whitaker.
After meeting Pushkin and faking his assassination by Bond, Bond investigates a scheme by Koskov and Whitaker to embezzle KGB funds and use them to purchase diamonds, which they then use to purchase drugs.
After Koskov purchases the drugs, Bond destroys them. Koskov is subsequently arrested by Pushkin, while Bond kills Whitaker.
Bond aids Felix Leiter in the capture of drugs lord Franz Sanchez; Sanchez escapes and maims Leiter, killing his wife.
Bond swears revenge, but is ordered to return to duty by M. Bond refuses, and M revokes his licence to kill , causing Bond to become a rogue agent; although officially stripped of his status, he is unofficially given help by Q.
Bond journeys to Sanchez's home in the Republic of Isthmus and is taken onto Sanchez's staff, where he manages to raise Sanchez's suspicions against a number of his employees.
When Bond is taken to Sanchez's main base and drugs refinery, he is recognised by one of Sanchez's men and captured.
He escapes, destroying the refinery in the process, and pursues Sanchez, killing him. In Bond and Alec Trevelyan —agent —infiltrate an illicit Soviet chemical weapons facility and plant explosive charges.
Trevelyan is shot, but Bond escapes from the facility as it explodes. Nine years later, Bond witnesses the theft by criminal organisation Janus of a prototype Eurocopter Tiger helicopter that can withstand an electromagnetic pulse.
Janus uses the helicopter to steal the control disk for the dual GoldenEye satellite weapons, using the GoldenEye to destroy the complex with an electromagnetic pulse; there are two survivors of the attack, the programmers, Natalya Simonova and Boris Grishenko.
Bond investigates the attack and travels to Russia where he locates Simonova and learns that Trevelyan, who had faked his own death, was the head of Janus.
Simonova tracks computer traffic to Cuba and she and Bond travel there and locate Trevelyan, who reveals his plan to steal money from the Bank of England before erasing all of its financial records with the GoldenEye, concealing the theft and destroying Britain's economy.
Bond and Simonova destroy the satellite facility, killing Trevelyan and Grishenko in the process. Bond investigates the sinking of a British warship in Chinese waters, the theft of one of the ship's cruise missiles —and the shooting down of a Chinese fighter plane.
He uncovers a link to media mogul Elliot Carver which suggests that Carver had purchased a GPS encoder on the black market.
Bond encounters Chinese agent Wai Lin , who is also investigating the matter and the two agree to work together.
They discover that Carver had used the GPS encoder to push the British ship off course and into Chinese waters to incite a war for ratings.
With the British fleet on their way to China, Bond and Wai Lin find Carver's stealth ship, board it and prevent the firing of a British cruise missile at Beijing.
They blow a hole in the ship, exposing it to radar, leading to its sinking and thus averting war between Britain and China.
Bond recovers money for Sir Robert King, a British oil tycoon and friend of M, but the money is booby-trapped and kills King shortly afterwards.
MI6 believes that Renard is targeting Elektra King a second time and Bond is assigned to protect her; the pair are subsequently attacked.
The two witness Renard stealing the GPS locator card and a half quantity of weapons-grade plutonium from a bomb and set off an explosion, from which Bond and Jones escape.
Elektra kidnaps M after she thinks Bond had been killed and Bond establishes that Elektra intends to create a nuclear explosion in a submarine in Istanbul to increase the value of her own oil pipeline.
Bond frees M, kills Elektra and then disarms the bomb on the submarine where he kills Renard. Moon is apparently killed and Bond is captured and tortured for 14 months, after which he is exchanged for Zao, Moon's assistant.
Despite being suspended on his return, he decides to complete his mission and tracks down Zao to a gene therapy clinic, where patients can have their appearances altered through DNA restructuring.
Zao escapes, but the trail leads to British billionaire Gustav Graves. Graves unveils a mirror satellite, "Icarus", which is able to focus solar energy on a small area and provide year-round sunshine for crop development.
Bond discovers that Moon has also undergone the gene therapy and has assumed the identity of Graves. Bond then exposes Moon's plan: to use the Icarus as a sun gun to cut a path through the Korean Demilitarized Zone with concentrated sunlight, allowing North Korean troops to invade South Korea and reunite the countries through force.
Bond disables the Icarus controls, kills Moon and stops the invasion. This serves as a reboot of the series, with Bond gaining his 00 status in the pre-credits sequence.
Bond is instructed to investigate the funding of terrorism. He tracks down and kills a bomb-maker and takes his mobile phone. Searching through the phone, Bond discovers a text message which he traces to Alex Dimitrios, and then on to financer Le Chiffre.
Le Chiffre's investments involve short-selling stock in successful companies and then engineering terrorist attacks to sink their share prices.
Bond foils Le Chiffre's plan to destroy the prototype Skyfleet airliner, which forces Le Chiffre to set up a high-stakes poker tournament at the Casino Royale to recoup his fortune.
Bond beats Le Chiffre at the poker table, but Lynd is kidnapped by Le Chiffre after the game, as is Bond, who is captured whilst pursuing them; Lynd is ransomed for the money and Bond is tortured.
Le Chiffre is subsequently killed by Mr. White, a liaison between Le Chiffre and a number of his clients. Bond learns that his poker winnings were never repaid to the Treasury, which Lynd was supposed to have done, and Bond establishes that she was a double agent.
Bond pursues her and is attacked by members of White's organisation: he survives, but White takes the money and Lynd sacrifices herself in exchange for Bond's life, as he later finds out from M.
Bond subsequently finds and captures White. Along with M, Bond interrogates Mr. White regarding his organisation, Quantum. M's bodyguard, Mitchell, a double agent , attacks M, enabling White to escape.
Bond traces the organisation to Haiti and a connection to environmentalist Dominic Greene. Bond uncovers a plot between Greene and an exiled Bolivian General, Medrano, to put Medrano in power in Bolivia while Quantum are given a monopoly to run the water supply to the country.
Bond ascertains Quantum are damming Bolivia's supply of fresh water to force the price up. Bond attacks the hotel where Greene and Medrano are finalising their plans and leaves Greene stranded in the desert with only a tin of engine oil to drink.
After an operation in Istanbul ends in disaster, Bond is missing and presumed to be dead. In the aftermath, questions are raised over M's ability to run the Secret Service, and she becomes the subject of a government review over her handling of the situation.
The Service itself is attacked, prompting Bond's return to London. His presence assists MI6's investigation in uncovering a lead, and Bond is sent to Shanghai and Macau in pursuit of a mercenary named Patrice.
There, he establishes a connection to Raoul Silva, a former MI6 agent who was captured and tortured by Chinese agents.
Blaming M for his imprisonment, he sets in motion a plan to ruin her reputation before murdering her. Bond saves M and attempts to lure Silva into a trap, and while he is successful in repelling Silva's assault, M is mortally wounded.
Bond returns to active duty under the command of the new M, Gareth Mallory. Following her death in Skyfall , M sends Bond a posthumous message that leads him to thwart a terrorist attack in Mexico City.
Gareth Mallory takes Bond off active duty for his illegal operation, but Bond continues his investigation off the books.
The trail leads him first to Rome, where he learns of a sinister terrorist organisation known as " Spectre "; and later to Austria where he finds former adversary Mr.
White, whom Spectre ordered to murder, dying of thallium poisoning. White asks Bond to protect his daughter Madeleine Swann from Spectre and its leader, Franz Oberhauser, before committing suicide.
Meanwhile, Mallory comes under pressure to have British intelligence join a global intelligence-sharing network code-named "Nine Eyes".
Spectre controls Nine Eyes, giving them access to the intelligence-sharing network. Oberhauser captures and tortures Bond, revealing that his father was Bond's guardian after the deaths of Bond's parents.
Now known as Ernst Stavro Blofeld , he claims responsibility for everything Bond has suffered in his career.
