Esquire gets Bond exclusive

Esquire has landed the first UK interview and photo shoot exclusive with Daniel Craig ahead of the international release of Spectre, the new James Bond film, in November.

This is the second time in succession that Esquire has scooped its competitors to the UK James Bond exclusive, following the magazine’s Skyfall cover in 2012, say the publishers.

Esquire Editor-in-Chief Alex Bilmes says: “The Bond cover is the greatest prize in men’s magazines, and Esquire has made it its own. Just as James Bond chooses Aston Martin for his wheels, Omega for his watchwear and Belvedere vodka for his martini, I am flattered that he continues to choose Esquire for his men’s magazine.”

Craig was interviewed by Alex Bilmes, photographed by Esquire Contributing Photographer Greg Williams and styled by Esquire Contributing Fashion Editor Gareth Scourfield wearing Giorgio Armani.
