About Town: Copenhageners recreate opening of ‘Spectre’

A whole host of fans dressed up to honour the Mexican ‘Day of the Dead’ for the premiere of ‘Spectre’ at the Imperial on October 27. The Mexican feast day on November 1 provides the setting for the dramatic opening of the film. Bond girl Léa Seydoux and Danish actor Jesper Christensen, her onscreen father, were amongst the stars gracing the red carpet.
