Directed by Sam Mendes, 'Spectre' opens in the UK and Ireland on October 26
An action-packed new trailer for Spectre, the 24th Bond film, has been released this morning (July 22). Watch it below.
The new trailer follows an announcement last Friday (July 17) that Spectre will open in the UK and Ireland on the same day as its world premiere. The 24th Bond film will be released in British and Irish cinemas on the evening of Monday, October 26 at the same time as its world premiere takes place in central London. It will then open in cinemas internationally on various later dates, with its US release scheduled for November 6.
Joining Daniel Craig’s 007 are double Oscar winner Christoph Waltz as a character called Franz Oberhauser, former Sherlock star Andrew Scott as a member of MI6 named Denbigh, Dave Bautista as a character called Mr. Hinx, Blue Is The Warmest Colour‘s Lea Seydoux as a Bond girl named Madeleine Swann, Italian actress Monica Bellucci as another female lead, Lucia Sciarra, and Mexican actress Stephanie Sigman as a character named Estrella.
Also returning alongside Craig are his Skyfall cast-mates Naomie Harris (Moneypenny), Ben Whishaw (Q), Rory Kinnear (Bill Tanner) and Ralph Fiennes (M). The film’s official plot synopsis teases: “In Spectre, a cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.”
In February Craig injured his knee while shooting a fight scene for the film but the actor has since made a full recovery. Meanwhile, Spectre‘s director Sam Mendes, who was also behind the camera for 2012’s Skyfall, has recently said that this will “probably” be his final Bond film.
