A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica 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 (Ralph Fiennes). Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) to help him seek out Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White (Jesper Christensen), who may hold the clue to untangling the web of SPECTRE.

Those tuning in for the NBA Final saw a different kind of warrior on Tuesday night.
James Bond (Daniel Craig) made a brief, if effective appearance, as the new one-minute long teaser for Spectre aired. It was the first glimpse of new footage since the initial trailer debuted back in March. And from the look of things, life isn’t going so well for 007 in his 24th film.
If you like your trailers shaken, not dull, get a load of this. Here’s the first full extended look at Spectre, the 24th James Bond film and fourth starring Daniel Craig. The word “anticipated” is as overused in showbiz as “superstar” is in sports, but this here’s the follow-up to 007’s most lucrative adventure. By far. Chances are you remember the 2012 film Skyfall, which is a) Sony’s biggest film ever, b) the UK’s highest grosser and c) No. 9 on the all-time list with $1.11B worldwide. In fact, the flick helped Sony turned an annual profit for the first time in five years.
Armed with a script by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade, director Sam Mendes is back for another go; reports surfaced a couple of years ago that he wouldn’t helm this one, but that silliness was squelched a few months later. Also returning are Rory Kinnear as Tanner, Ben Whishaw as Q, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny and Ralph Fiennes as the new M. Fresh blood is being pumped into the 53-year-old franchise via Christoph Waltz, Andrew Scott, Dave Bautista, Monica Bellucci and Léa Seydoux. Read the rest of this entry »
