I have to say, as much as Daniel Craig stays so vocal about not minding someone else taking over the iconic role of James Bond, I’m a little perplexed by it as he’s done such a fantastic job. Rebooting 007 into a single story after 20 films has been a pretty good move so far for MGM with Sony Pictures on hand, especially with the success had by the release of Skyfall in 2012 which I thoroughly enjoyed.
Needless to say, while I look forward to watching whoever gets cast to replace Craig in the meantime, I look forward to what’s in store for the new movie, Spectre. Embodying itself with a fresh new cast to play the classic roles of M, Q and Miss Moneypenny portrayed by the gorgeous Naomie Harris who is always easy on the eyes with actor Christoph Waltz also starring as our big question-mark villain, I can’t say how simply excited I am.
A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia (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.
