James Bond is back in action. The first ‘SPECTRE’ trailer was released earlier this evening, ushering in excitement for the next installment to the James Bond franchise. The film was directed by Sam Mendes and stars Daniel Craig, who returns for his fourth film as Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007.
Returning with Daniel Craig are Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw and Rory Kinnear. Joining the cast in the new film are Christoph Waltz, Léa Seydoux, Dave Bautista, Monica Bellucci and Andrew Scott. Not exactly a cast-member, but sure to be a standout star, is the Aston Martin DB10, which was created exclusively for SPECTRE.
In the new film a cryptic message from Bond’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.
Written by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade, Director of Photography is Hoyte van Hoytema and Editor is Lee Smith. Production Designer, Dennis Gassner returns along with Costume Designer, Jany Temime and Composer, Thomas Newman. Action Specialist, Alexander Witt is the 2nd Unit Director. Stunt Coordinator is Gary Powell, SFX Supervisor is Chris Corbould, and Visual Effects Supervisor is Steve Begg.
Skyfall, the 23rd James Bond film, was a worldwide box office phenomenon, opening #1 in 70 territories around the world, taking over $1.1 billion worldwide and setting a new all-time box office record in the UK by becoming the first film to take over £100 million.
Fans that are excited to see the new Bond in theaters still have a long wait ahead of them. Sony has set November 6, 2015 as the release date for ‘Spectre.’ Before then and now, you can probably bet on a few more high-octane trailers to hit the internet promoting the event.
