We are quite literally counting down the days until Spectre hits the big screen here at FemaleFirst as we are a huge fan of Daniel Craig as 007.
Skyfall really set the bar for the franchise back in 2012 and it is exciting to see Oscar-winning filmmaker Sam Mendes back in the director's chair to see what he delivers next.
Spectre will be the fourth outing for Craig as 007 and this is promising to be the biggest and most explosive instalment of the popular franchise yet. A brand new teaser TV spot has just been released and we have it for you to take a look at:
The debate still rolls on as to who will succeed Craig as James Bond, but I have my fingers tightly crossed that we will see the British actor takes on this role one more time. And, to be quite honest, there are not too many actors to choose from when it comes to finding his replacement.
However, Craig is 007 for the time being and he is not the only familiar face on the Spectre cast list as Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, and Naomi Harris are back as M, Q, and Eve Moneypenny.
With each Bond instalment come a whole of new faces, characters and villains and Spectre is no different as Léa Seydoux, Monica Bellucci, Andrew Scott, Dave Bautista, and double Oscar winner Christoph Waltz are all on board.
A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond (Craig) on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Bellucci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as Spectre.
Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott), the new head of the Centre for National Security, questions Bond's actions and challenges the relevance of MI6, led by M (Fiennes). Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny (Harris) and Q (Whishaw) to help him seek out Madeleine Swann (Seydoux), the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White (Jesper Christensen), who may hold the clue to untangling the web of Spectre. As the daughter of an assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot.
As Bond ventures towards the heart of Spectre, he learns of a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks, played by Christoph Waltz.
We are going to have to wait and see if Spectre enjoys billion-dollar success like Skyfall, but it is going to be one of the biggest films to hit the big screen this autumn.
Spectre is released 26th October.
