The popularity of Dia de los Muertos is growing worldwide. This presumably caused by the impressing opening scene of the James bond movie 'Spectre'. Agent 007 brings a visit to the national Dia de los Muertos parade during the start of the movie. This parade was actually non-existing in reality but was brought to life as an annual event after the success of the movie.
