Sony Pictures have released the first full trailer for Spectre today (22 July) and it features everything a James Bond fan could hope for: action (tons of it); intrigue (even more of it); and well dressed men and women doing ever so thrilling things!
Spectre will see Bond go up against an enemy from his past, when he receives "a cryptic message that sends him on a trail that uncovers a sinister organisation." Meanwhile, M (Fiennes) "battles political forces to keep the secret service alive."
The 24th Bond adventure has Academy Award-winning director Sam Mendes returning to the franchise after his success with Skyfall, which took $1.1bn at the box-office worldwide, making it the highest-grossing Bond movie in history.
Meanwhile, Daniel Craig is reprising his role as 007 for the fourth time and familiar faces Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear, and Ralph Fiennes will also feature.
New names to the series include Blue Is The Warmest Colour's Léa Seydoux, Monica Bellucci, Dave Bautista (Guardians Of The Galaxy), and Christoph Waltz.
Despite the movie being named after, and based upon the notorious terrorist organisation that featured heavily in Ian Fleming's original works and the earlier movies, it still remains a mystery as to whether SPECTRE leader, supervillain and evil genius Ernst Stavro Blofeld will crop up somewhere in the upcoming movie.
With seemingly all of the cast's characters named, at the moment it appears as if he won't but this is a spy movie after all - some level of mystery always works well.
At the beginning of this week, the studio revealed information about the women in Spectre, introducing their characters and allowing each to offer up a few details about their roles specifically and their run-ins with Mr. Bond.
Seydoux plays Madeleine Swann, doctor and daughter of an assassin, who meets the iconic agent at her clinic in Austria. Despite some initial attraction between the pair, their first meet is said to be "abrupt, to say the least."
Whilst Seydoux might have a frosty relationship with Craig on-screen, it sounds as if Bellucci may have a slightly warmer one as the 50-year-old stated about her character, Lucia Sciarra: "She comes from a man's world, but when the attraction between them takes place and she realizes her feminine power on him, then she trusts him to save her."
Spectre will be released in UK cinemas on 26 October and in the US on 6 November 2015.
