SPECTRE: New Trailer and Sam Mendes’ Future with 007

James Bond is back this November, and he’s bringing the 1960s with him.

Fans of the early Bond catalog will recognize the title of the movie, SPECTRE being the evil organization that so often faced off against the Sean Connery era 007. A return to the classic era villains is a welcome and exciting change, and Christoph Waltz seems a perfect fit to usher them back in. Just look at his Blofeld-esqe Nehru-style jacket!

No, Mr. Bond, I Expect You To Die: The 10 Best James Bond Villains

With the recent announcement that two-time Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz would be joining James Bond 24, we here at Grizzly Bomb thought we’d take a stab at listing the top 10 best Bond villains in the franchise’s 50-year history.

Waltz is capable of exuberant charm and manipulative anger, making him an absolutely apt choice for Bond’s newest nemesis. It’s still unconfirmed whether or not that will indeed be Waltz’s role. We do know that Chiwetel Ejiofor was in the running to be the next Bond villain back in April, but the deal fell through. We can only assume Christoph Waltz is now up for said villainous role, with whispers that Bond’s SPECTRE-running adversary Ernst Stavro Blofeld is the main villain. We can just see the glee in which Waltz will take with such a role if it proves true. Stay tuned for more updates on that.

‘Bond 24’ Gets A Director, and He Seems Familiar…

Well, it looks like Sam Mendes is a huge liar.

According Entertainment Weekly, Sam Mendes will in fact return for Bond 24, the new obviously permanent title for the next James Bond movie. You might recall that he had backed out of committing to return because of his obligations to theater productions of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and King Lear. However the lure of the spy world, beautiful women and double crosses have brought the critically acclaimed director back the franchise he helped revitalized with Skyfall last year.

Daniel Craig

Here’s what Mendes had to say in the statement:

[box_light]“I am very pleased that by giving me the time I need to honor all my theatre commitments, the producers have made it possible for me to direct Bond 24. I very much look forward to taking up the reins again, and to working with Daniel Craig, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli for a second time.”[/box_light]

This announcement obviously reunites him with Daniel Craig again, as well as Skyfall screenwriter John Logan. Hopefully we get another fantastic film that essentially continues its journey towards recapturing the feel of the Bond movies with Q, and the new M and Moneypenny, of course. The new movie is slated to come November 6th, 2015 in the United States with the United Kingdom (damn you Brits!) getting their official release earlier on October 23, 2015.

We can’t complain too much that the UK are getting it first. After all, James Bond is their national treasure as far as I’m concerned.
