It is a secret organization run by Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Bond finds a cryptic message from his past which sets him on the path to uncover the secret organization and its evil plot.

Meanwhile Agent M tries to keep the Secret Service up and running. It is interesting to see Ralph Fiennes in Judi Dench’s legendary shoes. Christopher Waltz was anticipated to play Blofeld who was seen last in 1983’s Never Say Never Again as Bond’s main antagonist.

He would instead be playing Oberhauser. Oberhauser would be the son of Bond’s former teacher Ian Oberhauser. Waltz was the first antagonist character confirmed in November. David Bautista and Andrew Scott will add to the villainous ranks in the 24th installment of Bond movies.

The main concern however comes to the theme song. After the Oscar winning performance by Adele for Skyfall; the speculation is what the new theme song would be like. Words rhyming with Spectre are really not an exciting perspective but who is singing it is more of an intriguing guess. The male Adele, Sam Smith is a probable shoo-in to sing the next theme song. However Lana Del Ray is also great with theme songs and people definitely want to hear more of her. 

Finally the revelation of the new Bond poster featuring a simple bullet hole crack in glass. The title of the film and the release date featured at the bottom which is November 6, 2015.
