James Bond Producers, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli today released the title of the 24th James Bond adventure, SPECTRE. The film, from Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment, is directed by Sam Mendes and stars Daniel Craig, who returns for his fourth film as Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007. SPECTRE begins principal photography on Monday, December 8, and is set for global release on November 6, 2015.

Along with Daniel Craig, Mendes presented the returning cast, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw and Rory Kinnear as well as introducing Christoph Waltz, Léa Seydoux, Dave Bautista, Monica Bellucci and Andrew Scott. Mendes also revealed Bond’s sleek new Aston Martin, the DB10, created exclusively for 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.

The 007 production will be based at Pinewood Studios, and on location in London, Mexico City, Rome and Tangier and Erfoud, in Morocco. Bond will return to the snow once again, this time in Sölden, along with other Austrian locations, Obertilliach, and Lake Altaussee.

Commenting on the announcement, Wilson and Broccoli said, “We’re excited to announce Daniel’s fourth installment in the series and thrilled that Sam has taken on the challenge of following on the success of SKYFALL with SPECTRE.”.

Written by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade, Director of Photography is Hoyte van Hoytema and Editor is Lee Smith. Production Designer, Dennis Gassner returns along with Costume Designer, Jany Temime and Composer, Thomas Newman. Action Specialist, Alexander Witt is the 2nd Unit Director. Stunt Coordinator is Gary Powell, SFX Supervisor is Chris Corbould, and Visual Effects Supervisor is Steve Begg.

Skyfall, the 23rd James Bond film, was a worldwide box office phenomenon, opening #1 in 70 territories around the world, taking over $1.1 billion worldwide and setting a new all-time box office record in the UK by becoming the first film to take over £100 million.

The launch of SPECTRE was streamed live on and, and the video is now available on demand at both sites.

Sucks that Waltz is not Blofeld. I guess there is a slim chance that they're pulling a 'Cumberbatch/Into Darkness' move here. Let's hope so.

I don't think there is a god. And if there is I'm nothing like him.

Where does it say he's not? I watched the announcement video and they honestly didn't say either way, unless I missed something.

A few thoughts though, while the title is great because of what it means for the movie itself...
I miss the more grandiose Bond titles like "From Russia With Love", "The World is Not Enough" and "Tomorrow Never Dies"
I suppose they tried that with the horribly vague Quantum of Solace to little acclaim, but still. Spectre, like 'Skyfall' is just so... short.
More importantly, what does this mean for QUANTUM? It was being built up AS the new SPECTRE.
Also, it appears that the fight with the McClory estate(?) was resolved in 2013, allowing the powers that be to finally use SPECTRE again, and Blofeld.
It'd be a shame if they didn't.

Also, who else thought that it's about damn time Monica Bellucci gets cast in a Bond movie?

Edit: my bad, apparently I did miss something. Waltz is playing a character called Oberhauser.
There's still plenty of room to have him be Blofeld though.
