The official synopsis for the newest film details Bond’s mission:
“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 the novels, SPECTRE was led by villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld but everyone involved with the film is coy on whether or not he will actually appear. Also remember that M is now played by Ralphe Fiennes, following Judi Dench’s performance.
Spectre directed by Sam Mendes with a screenplay by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade, stars Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Wishaw, Naomie Harris, Christoph Waltz, Monica Bellucci, David Bautista, Léa Seydoux, Stephanie Sigman, Andrew Scott, and Rory Kinnear. It’s set to hit theaters on November 6, 2015.
