Mexico City officials said Thursday that recent filming for the upcoming James Bond movie "Spectre" was a business boon for the capital's colonial core, despite complaints over lost sales blamed on street closures.
Mexico has plenty of murderous and eccentric drug lords, but its image-conscious government did not want the new James Bond film "Spectre" to feature a Mexican villain when 007 comes blazing into town.
After surviving the Sony hack, production for the new James Bond thriller "SPECTRE" has moved to Rome, where crowds are gathering to catch a glimpse of 007 and the oldest Bond girl yet, 50-year-old Monica Bellucci.
James Bond is back, in a new film with a retro title that evokes the series' past. The next 007 adventure will be called 'SPECTRE,' the dastardly fictional terrorist organization featured in 'Dr. No' and other early Bond films.
