If there is one film that I have been looking forward to ALL year... then it has to be Spectre as Daniel Craig returns as 007.
Spectre is set to be Craig's fourth outing as James Bond and his first since the billion dollar success of Skyfall back in 2012 - yes, it really is three years since the twenty third Bond film hit the big screen and was met with critical acclaim.
Will Spectre enjoy the same critical and commercial success? Director Sam Mendes did set the bar pretty high. It's happen as well that he is back in the director's chair to carry the franchise forward - I really cannot wait to see what he delivers this time around.
And the brand new full-length trailer for the film has arrived. It promises to be an action packed ride as 007 is haunted by someone from his past. Check it out:
It's great that we finally get a closer look at Christoph Waltz - who really does play a villain awfully well - but the trailer gives little away as to who this character is. We also get our first brief look at Andrew Scott as Max Denbigh.
A fantastic cast has been assembled for the film, as Waltz, Scott, Monica Bellucci, Lea Seydoux, and Dave Bautista are some of the exciting new names that are on board. There are some familiar faces to watch out for as Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, and Jasper Christensen are back as Q, M, Eve Moneypenny and Mr White.
A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Bellucci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as Spectre.
Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh (Scott), the new head of the Centre for National Security, questions Bond's actions and challenges the relevance of MI6, led by M (Fiennes). Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny (Harris) and Q (Whishaw) to help him seek out Madeleine Swann (Seydoux), the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White (Christensen), who may hold the clue to untangling the web of Spectre. As the daughter of an assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot.
As Bond ventures towards the heart of Spectre, he learns of a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks, played by Christoph Waltz.
The excitement is building around the release of Spectre - even though we do have quite a while to wait before the film hits the big screen - and it is set to be a box office smash.
Spectre is released 26th October.
