“James Bond will return…” It’s the classic phrase that follows every movie featuring 007, and now we know some details about his 2015 comeback tour. SPECTRE is the title revealed at a special event in the UK Thursday morning, hitting theaters November 6, 2015.
The cast of the film was also announced, with Daniel Craig returning of course as James Bond. Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Miss Moneypenny, Ben Whishaw as Q, and Rory Kenner as Tanner all return as well. Christoph Waltz joins the cast as Oberhausen, Lea Seydoux as Madeleine Swann, Monica Bellucci as Lucia Sciarra, Dave “Drax” Bautista as Mr. Hinx, and Andrew Scott as Denbigh. Sam Mendes is once again directing the film, which will shoot on location all over the world, including in London, Rome, Mexico City, and the Alps.
MGM also released an official longline for the film, giving some idea about what is coming. “A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. 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.” Of course, that title - and organization - has a loaded history for the James Bond franchise. The crime organization with the almost comically evil acronym that spells out Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge, and Extortion has been the primary enemy for Bond in six films already. Typically it’s led by Ernst Stavro Blofeld, whose name is missing from the cast list, but most speculation is that one of the new characters, most likely Waltz, will be revealed as the character eventually.
