Thousands of Mexicans participated in the annual Day of the Dead. Colorful traditional skulls, candles, and altars with pictures of deceased loved ones can be seen throughout the city. The event took place after a year-long hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic. Instilling a tradition dating back to the Aztec era, the Mexicans celebrated this day believing that their relatives would return to Earth to celebrate with them.

However, the thriving procession of the dead in the Mexican capital has a much shorter tradition. This is only the fifth edition of this event, the prototype of which was presented in the James Bond movie “Spectre”. Agent 007 was looking for clues in the investigation among people disguised as skeletons.
According to Mexican television, the new format of the show is an evolution of a student tradition from several years ago. However, the festivities before the premiere of the film had not been conducted on this scale before, and were not very popular.
Mexico City authorities paid up to $ 20 million to portray their capital in a film about the adventures of Agent 007. The deal ensured that the plot was not about corruption or war with drug cartels.
