This must be one of the first promo pics for a Bond film that doesn’t have the spy in a suit, it’s a turtleneck this time. Filming has been underway for several weeks on location in Italy and the Alps along with studio work at Pinewood. With the film set for release in the UK late October and the US in November they are on probably the tightest schedule for any Bond film.
Official synopsis for the film is ‘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.’
Spectre is directed by Sam Mendes and the cast includes regulars Ralph Fiennes (as M), Ben Whishaw (Q) and Naomie Harris (Moneypenny), along with new faces Christoph Waltz as Oberhauser, Dave Bautista as Mr. Hinx, Monica Bellucci as Lucia Sciarra, Lea Seydoux as Madeline Swann and Andrew Scott as Denbigh.
