“Spectre” announced as the next Bond film

Sony Pictures

Bond… James Bond.

 

Following the success of Skyfall, a 24th Bond film was announced to be in production, and now, after two years, Sony has unveiled it’s name and the cast.

Returning for this film are Daniel Craig (Bond), director Sam Mendes, Ralph Fiennes (M), Ben Whishaw (Q), Naomie Harris (Miss Moneypenny), and Rory Kinnear (Tanner) along with the new faces of Andrew Scott, Dave Bautista, Monica Bellucci, Lea Seydoux, and two-time Oscar winning (Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained) actor Christoph Waltz.

This installment will feature the keystone, villainous organization known as SPECTRE. This terror fueled organization first appeared in the first official Bond film, Dr. No. It was originally suggested that Christoph Waltz would play an updated version of SPECTRE’s notorious leader

Ernst Stavro Blofeld, but he will instead play a new villain known as Oberhauser.

It’s expected that Spectre will carry on, non-linear with the pre-Craig era Bond’s, after Skyfall. When Casino Royale (2006) first released, it was intended to break the past line of films and sort of reboot the aging series.

Spectre will also feature the new Aston Martin DB10 and will be the first film in 20 years to not feature Judi Dench as M. It will instead feature Ralph Fiennes who slowly transitioned as the new M in Skyfall.

Along with the announcement event’s many revelations, Spectre was given a fall release date of October 23rd, 2014 in the UK, so make sure to mark your calendars.
