After some speculation, the title for the 24th film in the James Bond franchise has been revealed, and it’s one to be excited about. Yes, an announcement earlier today let us in on Bond’s next adventure being called Spectre, which is the name of the villainous organization that 007 has had to contend with in the past. Spectre is an acronym, which stands for SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion, in case you were wondering. In addition to the title being revealed, the next car Bond will drive was unveiled (it’s an Aston Martin DB10), as well as some casting confirmations. Daniel Craig is of course back as the famous spy, alongside returning cast members Ralph Fiennes, Naomi Harris, Rory Kinnear, and Ben Whishaw. Joining the cast is Dave Bautista, Monica Bellucci, Andrew Scott, Lea Seydoux, and none other than Christoph Waltz. Sam Mendes returns to direct, with Christopher Nolan vets Lee Smith and Hoyte Van Hoytema among the new additions behind the camera. Spectre hits theaters next year on November 6th, so it’s technically now less than 12 months until Bond returns. With a ton of potential hinted at with this title, my expectations will be sky high, that’s for sure. Especially after how great Skyfall was, the franchise could be headed to a new peak. Stay tuned for much more on Spectre in the coming months.
