James Bond goes casual on the first poster for the latest 007 film, “Spectre.”
In a rare occurrence, Daniel Craig is seen front and center sans the British super spy’s signature tuxedo, wearing instead a turtleneck sweater and a gun clip. It’s fitting for a franchise relaunch that’s tended toward the grounded and gritty more than ever before.
Sam Mendes is returning to direct “Spectre” after his success with “Skyfall” in 2012. Craig is reprising his role as the MI6 agent, and he’ll be joined by a supporting cast that includes new players Dave Bautista, Christoph Waltz, Monica Belluci and Lea Seydoux, as well as returning stars Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris and Ralph Fiennes.
“Spectre” follows Bond deciphering a cryptic message to uncover a sinister organization. While M (Fiennes) battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.
Bond fans will remember that SPECTRE (Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion) was a major force in the early entries in the series, with Sean Connery battling the group in films like “Dr. No” and “Thunderball.”
“Spectre” will be released on Nov 6. See the first poster for the film below.
