The 24th James Bond Adventure, Spectre, Is Screened in 4K Using Sony SRX-R320 Dual Projection System at the World Premiere

On October 26th, the eyes of the world fell on London’s Royal Albert Hall for the World Premiere of SPECTRE and the 24th James Bond adventure looked better than ever as it was projected in Sony 4K –bringing every detail of the film to life with thrilling realism for the star-studded audience.
The World Premiere was attended by Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, and by the film’s leading actors Daniel Craig, Christoph Waltz, Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, David Bautista, Monica Bellucci, Andrew Scott and Ralph Fiennes. The cast was joined on the red carpet by director Sam Mendes and producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli.
The performance was screened using a dual projection system consisting of two SRX-R320 projectors provided by Sony Digital Cinema 4K offering industry-leading clarity, colour and contrast.
SPECTRE is the second Bond film to be mastered and delivered to cinemas as a 4K DCP (Digital Cinema Package). With four times the resolution of consumers’ Full HD televisions or conventional 2K projection, 4K guarantees the highest possible clarity for cinema audiences – even on the biggest screens.  
“If there’s one man who’s always certain to look his best, it’s James Bond” says David McIntosh, Vice President, Sony Digital Cinema 4K Solutions for Europe and the Americas. “We were delighted to support Sony Pictures on this very special occasion. Projected in Sony 4K, the World Premiere of SPECTRE gave the audience a truly sensational spectacle.”
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 (Léa 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.
SPECTRE opened across the UK on October 26, 2015, and will open in the US on November 6, 2015.
Don’t miss a single detail. Make sure your next appointment with Bond is at a theatre equipped to show SPECTRE with all the detail that only Sony 4K Digital Cinema delivers.
