Just a few days after its title and principal cast were announced, the first picture from the set of new James Bond movie Spectre has been unveiled, though as you can see it’s nothing exciting, just a clipperboard and M’s porcelain dog from the last 007 adventure Skyfall.
Meanwhile, Sam Mendes revealed to Entertainment Now that he already knows which artist will be singing the theme from Spectre.
“When will you find out? You’ll have to ask Barbara Broccoli, but I would say – on the basis of the last one – very, very late in the day,” .
I can’t say I’m enthused at this film being called Spectre – I mean is that really the best they could come up with? I am though rather excited by the return of the Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion and its head Ernst Stavro Blofeld, a character not seen, in the official series anyway, since Diamonds Are Forever [though he almost appeared in The Spy Who Loved Me].
Daniel Craig returns as the world’s most visible agent for Spectre, while Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw and Rory Kinnear will reprise their roles from Skyfall. Christoph Waltz, Andrew Scott, Léa Seydoux, Monica Bellucci and David Bautista will also feature in the cast. Spectre will be released on November 6, 2015 in cinemas around the world.
