Pin your eyelids back and fire up the popcorn maker: October is promising a visual smorgasbord for film fans. From intense Bond action in Spectre to Oscar buzz in Suffragette, take a read of our quick guide and prepare to diarise...
1. Spectre - October 26
The one everybody will be talking about
Why you should see it: Skyfall recharged Bond's batteries after the woeful Quantum of Solace, meaning all eyes are on Spectre to see if Daniel Craig and Sam Mendes can pull off the same trick twice. The introduction of Christoph Waltz's mysterious new villain - who's definitely probably classic 007 nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld - is reason enough to see this. But does he come with a white Persian cat?
2. The Walk - October 2
The one that'll give you vertigo
Don't expect Lea Seydoux to be playing a typical Bond girl in Spectre.
That's according to the actress, who has revealed further details of her character Madeleine Swann.
Everything you need to know about Spectre
"My character is a rebel. She doesn't need Bond or wait for him to save her," Seydoux told the Mail on Sunday.
"[Madeleine] is Bond's equal. It's not what you expect from a Bond film. It's a much more intense, complex and deep relationship."

While she was a sideline player in Quantum of Solace, Kurylenko is the one with a license to kill this time around.
The South African thriller centres on infiltration expert Alex (Kurylenko), who accidentally exposes her identity in the middle of a heist.
With a dangerous government operative (James Purefoy) on her trail, Alex has no choice but to strike back in order to stay alive.
A Us release date has been set for October 16, while Momentum releases in the UK on November 20. »
We’re getting closer to the release of “Spectre,” the 24th James Bond movie, and follow up to the billion-dollar Oscar-winner “Skyfall.” And as day follows night, and as Blofeld follows Bond, that means we’re getting a new Bond theme. Some kind of popular singer belting out a new song has been part of the 007 formula since the following, and though recent examples have mostly been less than memorable (try to remember who did the “Quantum Of Solace” theme without looking it up, we dare you), “Skyfall” had a cracker with Adele’s mega-selling theme, which won an Oscar and a Grammy. This time around, title-singing duties fall to human Macklemore chorus Sam Smith, and after a few weeks of teasing, his track “The Writing’s On The Wall,” arrived this morning. Written with “Spectre” composer Thomas Newman, the track is very much in the “Skyfall” mold - lush strings, »

“James Blond!” screamed the press when Daniel Craig was cast as everyone’s favourite super spy, while the internet went into the sort of obsessive lockdown typically reserved for the casting of Batman. The Daily Mirror, in a bid to be a bit different, went with the more cutting “The Name’s Bland – James Bland”, but the message was clear – this man isn’t James Bond.
What a difference a decade makes. Craig has not only gone on the star in two of the franchise’s best movies (and admittedly one of its worst, although how good could a movie called Quantum Of Solace really be?), but is regularly stated as one of the all time bests, second only to perhaps Sean Connery (and he’s given the original a real run for his money). Raw, dark and brutal, but still possessing that charm and swagger that makes Bond so alluring, »

As part of its integrated global Spectre campaign, Heineken has unveiled a new TV spot - titled "The Chase" - which features Daniel Craig as James Bond in a high speed boat chase.

The Heineken spot will be launched mobile-first via Facebook, and will be shown on TV and cinema screens worldwide 24 hours later.

Heineken's "The Chase" uses Spectre cinematographers and stuntmen to ensure the action sequences are authentically Bond. »

Palio is a new documentary chronicling the dangerous, twice-yearly horse racing event in Siena, Italy. This race, which has been running since 1581, takes place with jockeys riding bareback on horses, around a circular, dirt-laden track (the Piazza del Campo) on July 2nd and August 16th of every year. The race is more commonly know to mainstream audiences as the centrepiece of the opening act of Daniel Craig’s second James Bond movie, Quantum Of Solace, but for the inhabitants of the town in which it takes place, it is so much more than that.
Cosima Spender‘s film wonderfully documents one year in the lives of the people involved in this prestigious event; from the district captains and supporters, to the horse trainers jockeys, and showcases the year-long training, »

Is Spectre the longest Bond movie ever?
Briefly: We are hearing reports that the next 007 James Bond movie Spectre could be the longest one yet. There are reports online that the Sam Mendes directed film could be as long at 160 minutes, a full 16 minutes longer that the current record-holder Casino Royale.
There are conflicting reports of the apparent running time though. Digital Spy have discovered that UK cinema chain Odeon lists the film at 160 minutes, Empire at 155 minutes, and Vue at 150 minutes.
Daniel Craig reprises his role as Bond for the fourth time, following turns in Casino Royale, Quantum Of Solace and Skyfall, the most successful British film of all time. Sam Mendes directs the film, which hits UK cinemas on Monday 26th October, and Us cinemas on November 6th.

For a film setting out to top a $1 billion box office haul and scores of stellar reviews, Sam Mendes’ Spectre was always going to be one of the undisputed heavyweights this fall season. However, according to British cinema listings, the spy thriller could be one of the biggest releases of the year – so big, in fact, that it could become the longest James Bond film in history.
While neither MGM nor Sony – nor the British Board of Film Classification, for that matter – have posted an official running time for Spectre, Vue has claimed that the sequel is an eye-watering 160 minutes in length, while Empire Cinemas posted listings that peg the movie at 155 minutes not including trailers or pre-film adverts.

Early reports suggest incoming James Bond adventure Spectre will be 007's longest mission to date...
The official running time for the 24th James Bond movie, Spectre, has yet to be formally announced. But two cinema chains have now posted the estimated runtime, and an investment in cushions seems wise.
Empire Cinemas are allowing 155 minutes for Spectre’s runtime (not including adverts and trailers), and this is backed up by the pre-booking page at our local cinema (the Empire Rubery). Showings in individual screens appear to be roughly three and a half hours apart, which sounds about right for a movie of 155 minutes plus adverts. Empire Cinema's estimates are generally pretty much on the money, in our experience.
Vue, meanwhile, is advertising the film as 160 minutes long.
And we’d guess the actual answer is between the two of them. These are unlikely to be numbers plucked out of thin air, »

With the 24th James Bond film coming out in mere months, Spectre fever is being contracted all over the land - and these new posters aren't helping.
Sure, it's also still Craig's time to shine, and also the boney face mask guy's time to shine - if that isn't just 007 in disguise, of course...
Previous one-sheets have seen Craig's Bond in a white tux, echoing Sean Connery's take on the character, but this one is very much his own thing, all blue suit and swooshing 007 symbol.
Spectre is released »
When the latest James Bond adventure Spectre hits theaters this fall, it will mark the fourth time Daniel Craig has played the iconic secret agent, following Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace and Skyfall. Daniel Craig hinted in a recent interview that his days as Bond may be numbered, although he wouldn't confirm one way or another if Spectre will be his last performance as 007. If that does turn out to be true, it seems there may be another candidate lying in wait to replace him, none other than soccer star-turned-actor David Beckham.
A new report from Mirror.uk reveals that the 40-year-old David Beckham is "seriously considering" putting himself in contention for the role, after his fans suggested that he should be the next James Bond. He recently made his big-screen debut in Guy Ritchie's The Man from U.N.C.L.E. as a projectionist, and he will have a much bigger »
