Sony has released the first trailer for the 24th James Bond movie Spectre, and as always it looks set to be another edge of your seat, high action film, with an intriguing plotline.
Directed by Sam Mendes, the man behind Skyfall, this latest blockbuster in the James Bond franchise will again see Daniel Craig play the iconic spy for a fourth time.
This first trailer hasn’t given up all the secrets just yet, but what we do know is that a cryptic message from 007’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind Spectre. There are also notable links back to the previously mentioned 2012 epic Skyfall, and we briefly get to see Bond driving the custom Aston Martin that was made especially for the film.
In Ian Fleming's original Bond novels, and in a number of classic Bond movies, the acronym ‘SPECTRE’ refers to the Special Executive for Counter-Intellligence, Terrorism Revenge and Extortion, an organisation headed by one of the franchise's most popular villains, super-baddie Blofeld.
Two-time Oscar-winner Christoph Waltz will play Hannes Oberhauser, an Austrian climbing and skiing instructor who taught Bond when 007 was a boy, but rumour has it that this character will turn into Blofeld.
Alongside Craig's Bond and Waltz, Spectre will also star Léa Seydoux, Ralph Fiennes, Irish actor Andrew Scott, former pro wrestler Dave Bautista, and Monica Bellucci who at the age of 50 is set to be the oldest ‘Bong Girl’ ever cast.
There is still no official word on who will sing the James Bond theme tune, with numerous names being put forward so far including Sam Smith, Lana Del Rey, Lord, Paloma Faith, and Ed Sheeran.
After Spectre, Craig is signed on to make one further Bond movie.
Spectre is scheduled to hit the big screen on 6th November, but take a look at the eagerly awaited first trailer below, and check out the 007 website here.
