A lot of Bond fans theorize that there isn’t much continuity to the series, claiming that there has been more than one Bond, different people who each donned the 007 moniker. While that subject has been discussed elsewhere, it’s indisputable that the Daniel Craig reboot that started with Casino Royale in 2006 has followed the same continuity.
While Skyfall briefly revealed some details regarding Bond’s past, Spectre pulls back the curtain more than ever before, revealing a mysterious tramaus who claims to have had a hand in many of Bond’s past traumas.
The new trailer features the trademark brooding and explosive action scene while also showing off all new cast members including Monica Belluci, Christoph Waltz, Dave Bautista and Lea Seydoux. Spectre premieres in The UK on October 26, with a wide release beginning November 6.
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. As the daughter of an assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot.
As Bond ventures towards the heart of SPECTRE, he learns of a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks, played by Christoph Waltz.
