Ocean's large format digital screen was upgraded two years ago and is one of the most photographed landmarks in London.

The trailer’s unique release via the world’s most famous outdoor advertising and content screen was planned by MediaCom. 

Ocean said the occasion was supported by further content across its national portfolio of UK outdoor advertising screens.

The movie trailer was shown on the large format Piccadilly Lights at 1:40pm on Wednesday (December 4) in the first of two spectacular five-minute showcases.

“Bond is back - and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the highly anticipated return of world’s most famous secret agent”, said Ocean Outdoor UK co-managing director Phil Hall.
