Following the Spectre marketing campaign having kicked off early last week, with a teaser poster, our first look at some of the film's footage has arrived, in the form of a teaser trailer, and it's awesome. Bond is back!

A lot of franchises hit the trilogy mark, with three instalments - The Dark Knight TrilogyLord of the Rings etc. Fewer surpass this and go onto fourth and fifth films - Transformers, even Toy Story soon. Even fewer hit or even pass seven - take Harry Potter or Star Wars, for example. Well, I think, only ONE franchise has had 23 previous instalments and is going onto its 24th. 

Over 25 years since it began, having gone through several different James Bond's, we'll be welcoming the 24th (wow, that's a lot) Bond film very soon, Spectre. Today, it has received a teaser trailer and it's pretty great. Bond is back but there's a lot more going on that meets the eye and I like how the reveal teases that but never gives anything away, showing off just enough to get us exciting and raising a lot of interesting questions too. Sam Mendes returns at the helm, for this, after his 2012 Skyfall was the biggest and best reviewed Bond film to release.

Craig will be reprising his role as Bond, Spectre will mark his fourth outing as the iconic agent, and he'll be joined by Dave Bautista as Mr. Hinx, Andrew Scott as Denbigh, Monica Bellucci as Lucia Sciarra, Léa Seydoux as Madeleine Swann and Christopher Waltz as Oberhauser. It's thought that Oberhauser will be the leader of Spectre. They'll join other returning cast members Ben WhishawNaomie HarrisRalph Fiennes and Rory Kinnear.

Personally, I'm excited for this film. The ensemble cast is made up of such wonderfully talented and just great actors so I'm excited to see what they bring to what is, already, such a renowned, poignant franchise. With Sam Mendes at the helm, Craig as Bond (he's my favourite one) and all these actors on-board, Spectre is shaping up to be a good film when it hits the UK on October 23rd, 2015, before reaching the U.S, on November 6th, 2015.

Here's the film's official synopsis:
In SPECTRE, a cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. 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.  Sam Mendes returns to direct SPECTRE, with Daniel Craig reprising his role as 007 for the fourth time.SPECTRE is produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, from a script by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade.
