This morning, director Sam Mendes announced the official name for the 24th Bond film (Spectre), the official Bond car (Aston Martin DB10), and key cast members. Five newcomers (Andrew Scott, Christoph Waltz, Lea Seydoux, Dave Bautista, and Monica Bellucci) will be joining the group established in 2012’s Skyfall: Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear, and of course Daniel Craig himself as James Bond.
Spectre begins filming tomorrow and is set for release November 6th, 2015.
I’m Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite James Bond movie in Hollywood (sorry, I had to do that).
In order, that’s Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, and…Spectre. Anyone else feel like the title is lacking something?
Though to be fair, this movie won’t be lacking talent. Along with the stellar cast listed above, Spectre is thankfully gifted with the same writing and cinematography team as Skyfall.
As for the title, a rumored plot synopsis is that “Spectre” is the name of a new crime organization that Bond has to take down. So I guess we shouldn’t expect it to be tied to a third act revelation the same way Skyfall was. And that’s probably a good thing.

I read that plot synopsis somewhere too. Not sure if it’s official though…
I’m worried that either Spectre will either be yet another massive, dark organization that was “really” in charge of Quantum, OR, and this is worse, it’ll be MI6 (Hail Hydra).
I could make so many Mass Effect jokes right now.
I should go.
We’ll talk later.
I’m definitely a fan of Dave Bautista being in more movies.
We need a new James Bond.
Then you fail…Daniel Craig is AWESOME at being Bond
Since Daniel Craig has been a slowly developing origin of James Bond as 007, then it stands to reason that this is the first appearance of SPECTRE from the movie Thunderball. So, yes, it is an evil organization.
I suggest the new Bond actor should be ‘Mr.Bean”.
Spectre is not something new. It has been mentioned since the very first James bond film, doctor no.
