The first full trailer for the new Bond movie, Spectre, has been released.
Fans will not be disappointed as the latest 007 instalment is packed with explosions, glimpses of epic car chases and Bond’s witty one-liners.
Daniel Craig is back as sharp-suited spy James Bond, and when quizzed in the trailer about his whereabouts quips: “I was taking some overdue holiday.”
Naomie Harris is back as Miss Moneypenny and tells a serious-looking Bond: “I think you’re just getting started.”
Since it was revealed double Oscar-winner Christoph Waltz would be playing Bond’s nemesis, there has been much anticipation and hype from fans.
And judging from his ominous stare-down and shadowed glimpses of him in the trailer, Waltz will not disappoint.
His character, reportedly called Franz Oberhauser, is overheard telling Bond he is the “author of all his pain”.
But no Bond film is complete without its trademark Bond girl beauties and the trailer also shows a glimpse of both newcomers – Lea Seydoux as Madeleine Swann, daughter of his old nemesis Mr White, and Monica Bellucci as Lucia Sciarra.
Spectre is the 24th movie in the franchise. The 23rd instalment, Skyfall, racked up $US1.1 billion ($A1.48 billion) dollars worldwide after its release in 2012.
Director Sam Mendes, who is at the helm for Spectre again, was quoted this week as saying he would not be back to do another one.
“I said no to the last one and then ended up doing it, and was pilloried by all my friends,” he said.
“But I do think this is probably it.”
London will host the world premiere of the movie on October 26.
