Spectre trailer embraces Bond movies past: Who's lurking in the shadows?

Daniel Craig will make his 007 comeback later this year with the release of Spectre, a continuation of the story started in Sam Mendes's Skyfall. Craig has re-energised the Bond franchise since his debut in 2006's Casino Royale, and all signs point towards Spectre being another worthy addition to the series.

Digital Spy runs down everything you need to know about Spectre ahead of its cinema debut on October 23.

A threat from James Bond's past will return

It's all in the title. Crime syndicate Spectre (Special Executive for Counter-Intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion), headed up by Ernst Stavro Blofeld, regularly attempted world domination in Sean Connery's '60s outings, but they've been absent for decades due to an ongoing legal dispute with Thunderball co-creator Kevin McClory.

McClory passed away in 2006 and his Bond rights were eventually regained by Eon/MGM, »

What did we learn from the Spectre teaser trailer?

28 March 2015 3:21 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The first teaser trailer for James Bond 24 has been released, but what did it tell us about the upcoming movie, Spectre?

After letting the sky fall when it crum-balled to the tune of a billion dollars at the global box office, Spectre may be the most anticipated James Bond movie since the last one. Daniel Craig's fourth feature as 007 won't arrive in UK cinemas until October, but the response to the teaser trailer released over the weekend has been very positive.

Four is hardly a magic number for Bond actors. Sean Connery's fourth outing was the less-than-stellar Thunderball, Roger Moore's was the all-too-interstellar Moonraker and Pierce Brosnan closed out his four-movie tenure with the infamously poor Die Another Day.

That makes Craig the fourth actor to rack up four turns as Bond, and if you're superstitious about this sort of thing, maybe that's why this looks to be the combo breaker. »

Spectre trailer embraces Bond movies past: Who's lurking in the shadows?

It took 44 years and 20 big screen outings before the Bond films even began to acknowledge its protagonist's origins, but if anything's going to define Daniel Craig's tenure as 007 it's the echoes from the character's past.

In the years between Roger Moore's departure and Timothy Dalton's arrival with The Living Daylights, screenwriters Richard Maibaum and Michael G Wilson explored the idea of taking Bond back to his roots with the Royal Navy and his induction into MI6.

Producer Cubby Broccoli, the man who masterminded Bond's cinematic success, dismissed this notion, arguing that audiences loved Ian Fleming's hero because he was bullet proof and fully formed.

How times change.

Since Daniel Craig's dramatic entrance in Casino Royale, Bond has been a vulnerable tortured soul, carrying this through in Quantum of Solace and Skyfall. The latter turned back the clock as 007 returned to his family home in Scotland, giving »

Spectre shoot restarts, looks cold

5 January 2015 11:14 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A new set picture reveals that James Bond is back shooting again, and that the Spectre team might need a good, warm coat.

The race really is on to get the next James Bond movie, Spectre, shot and ready in time for its late October UK premiere.

Daniel Craig is reprising the role of 007 in the movie, and alongside director Sam Mendes (returning following Skyfall), he's currently engaged in a lengthy shoot where there's little room for delay. In the case of Skyfall, things were also quite tight, but that mainly shot in the UK. Spectre seems to be doing a bit more globe trotting.

Anyway, shooting on Spectre took a short break over the Christmas period, having slotted in a couple of weeks of work in December. But it's back up and running now, and the latest shot for the film suggests that everybody on the film's location will be needing their winter woollies. »
