Get your acronyms, jumpsuits and Illuminati parallels at the ready – Spectre’s coming.
After the still-confusing Quantum Of Solace and hitherto-unknown Skyfall, the name of the twenty-fourth Bond movie promises something concrete. Named after the criminal syndicate from the Sean Connery-era movies (and Ian Fleming’s original novels), the title’s created even more speculation for what was already one of the most anticipated, but also most risky, movies of the year.
It’s a particularly ballsy move on Sam Mendes’ part to return to the 007 franchise after Skyfall. Bond 23 was such an assured meditation on the series’ relevance, as well as a great entry in the canon by itself, that it already sits alongside Goldfinger as one of 007’s best. Just how do you top that?
Well, based on the first trailer for Spectre, it looks like the Oscar-winner has found the answer for that question. »

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. »
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.
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 »
Earlier today, as the world anxiously awaited the premiere of the teaser trailer for "Spectre," the latest James Bond adventure (once again starring Daniel Craig as 007), we were on the set of the film in Mexico City, watching them film the movie's dramatic opening sequence and chatting with various members of the crew. This sequence obviously didn't make it into the teaser, which was weirdly action-free, but it did give us a hint at what's to come from this spy thriller.
Mexico is a location that the James Bond franchise has utilized plenty of times before, most recently in the mostly forgotten Craig entry "Quantum of Solace" and the hotel where part of this action sequence takes place, the Gran Hotel de Mexico, had already been used in a 007 movie -- the even-more-forgotten Timothy Dalton joint "The Living Daylights," way back in 1987 (no, I don't remember that one either).

Daniel Craig could very well end up with the best ratio of good-to-bad Bond films of any Bond actor. Of his three contributions to the franchise only Quantum Of Solace stands out as a weak link, and even it’s not that bad. Anticipation has been high for the twenty-forth Bond film and whether it can keep Daniel Craig’s streak going. Well the first teaser for Spectre is here and if it’s any indication I’d say we’re in for another winner. Check »

Tom Felton has said that he wants to play James Bond or a Bond villain because he was first inspired to become an actor by the franchise.
Speaking to Metro, the actor said that it is an "unfulfilled career ambition" of his to work on a Bond film.
"I haven't landed James Bond yet," he said. "Playing Bond or a Bond villain was why I wanted to do movies in the first place."
The actor, who is best known for his role as bully Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films, also said that he does not believe he has become typecast as a villain.
"I enjoy darker characters and humanising people who seem villainous, but who might just be insecure or have their own problems," he said.
"I'm not typecast, I am going for things further up the heroic scale. But I would be happy to play villainous roles »
In an interview with Magic FM, Arterton said: "I think Idris has got the cheek, he's great with action, he's funny but he's suave at the same time, he's sexy and he's black and I think we should have a black Bond.

She told the Independent: " I wasn't happy about it. It wasn't like: 'Oh my God, »
Well hello there Mr. Bond! The first poster for the next James Bond film, Spectre, is finally here in all its glory. Daniel Craig, who's back for his fourth film in the franchise, smolders in a tight black turtleneck sweater and brown gun holster that many believe is reminiscent of Roger Moore in Live and Let Die. Spectre marks the 24th Bond film to date and is currently in production in Europe. The highly anticipated film is set to be released in theaters on November 6 this year. Craig first played 007 in 2006's Casino Royale, then in 2008's Quantum of Solace and 2012's Skyfall (which is the highest grossing Bond flick ever). Newcomers include Léa Seydoux, »

The actor returns for his fourth turn as Bond, reprising his iconic role from Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace and the 2012 blockbuster Skyfall.

This year we'll see Blake Lively stay perpetually young in The Age of Adaline, and Jason Clarke fight and army of machines in Terminator: Genisys. And next, the two will unite for something completely different for both of them. Deadline reports Lively and Clarke will star in All I See is You, a new psychological drama from World War Z and Quantum of Solace director Marc Forster. The filmmaker also wrote the script with Sean Conway and will produce along with Michael Shelby and Sc International Pictures along with Ron Perlman, by way of his own Wing and a Prayer productions, Jillian Kugler and Brian Wilkins. The story certainly sounds intriguing as it follows a blind woman and her husband who upon restoration of her sight begins to discover previously unseen and disturbing details about themselves, their marriage and their lives. That's a fairly vague conflict, but maybe it become a bit of a thriller? »
