Last night British High Commissioner, Paul Arkwright, hosted an exclusive VIP premiere of the new James Bond film, SPECTRE, which goes on general release on Friday 6 November.
The screening was preceded by a glamorous event, with guests taking to a specially created ‘green carpet’, reflecting Nigeria’s national colour as well as celebrating the two joint hosts and Official Partners of SPECTRE – Jaguar Land Rover and Heineken – whose corporate colours are both green.
SPECTRE is Bonds twenty-fourth cinematic adventure, and has been hailed the most expensive 007 film to date, costing 200 million pounds ($300 million). Mr Arkright says: “James Bond is an icon of British style, adventure and culture. The new film embodies Britain at its very best – it was a roller-coaster ride of excitement from start to finish and is set to delight cinema goers with its high octane action scenes. I was physically exhausted just watching!”
