“Día de los Muertos” is a traditional festival in Mexico, remembering all dead.

Out of the country it got well known in a James Bond movie in 2015, called Spectre.

The first place is Mexico City, and the movie starts with a March of the Dead- see photo below with 007 masked as Mr Dead.


Following Gareth Mallory’s promotion to M, James Bond takes leave from MI6. Receiving a posthumous message from the previous M, Bond carries out an unauthorised mission in Mexico City, killing three men plotting a terrorist bombing on a stadium, before giving chase to their leader, Marco Sciarra. In the ensuing struggle, Bond steals his ring, which is emblazoned with a stylised octopus. Bond then kicks Sciarra out of a helicopter causing him to fall to his death.

Now the Día de los Muertos happened again in Mexico with a  good timing for Halloween all over the world.
