Today, the folks behind the ever successful Bond franchise have finally made their official announcement concerning Bond 24. The title will be Spectre, which hints to the evil organization headed-up by Bond's greatest villain Blofeld. We actually haven't seen the group in decades, and this could be a great way to bring-back the tone of the classic films. Sam Mendes played with these concepts back in Skyfall, while finally giving us updated takes on the classic characters Moneypenny and Q. Like the last film, the name will actually be an important aspect to the film's plot.
The casting was also confirmed and it does look like a majority of it was on the money. Christoph Waltz, Lea Seydoux, Monica Bellucci, Dave Baustita and Sherlock's Andrew Scott were all confirmed as new cast members. While Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Naomi Harris, Ben Whishaw and Rory Kinnear were set to return as well.
Scott will be apart of MI6 as Agent Denbigh, while Waltz will be playing a character called Oberhauser and Bautista is playing an iconic henchman named Mr. Hinx. The ladies will be playing characters named Madeleine Swan (Seydoux) and Luciana Sciarra (Bellucci).
A quick google search of the name Oberhauser, and I get famous Nazi/SS officer war criminal Josef Oberhauser. Blofeld worked with the Nazis during WWII, could this be Sam Mendes just messing with us?
Locations for Spectre will include Pinewood London, Mexico City, Rome, Tangier, Erfond (Morocco) and Sölden (Austria).
They've included the first teaser poster for the film due out in November 6th, 2015. Someone has pointed out the bullet-hole in the poster is stylistic take on the old Spectre logo from the old Bond films. Along with promo image of the cast of Spectre.
