The world received its first glimpse of “Spectre” on Friday with the release of a teaser trailer for the 24th James Bond film on 007.com.
The teaser went live at 23:45 GMT, or at the very end of the work week in the United Kingdom. The worldwide release is set for Nov. 6.
The trailer opens with Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny giving Daniel Craig’s James Bond personal effects from Skyfall, his boyhood home — which burned to the ground at the end of the movie of the same name.
“You’ve got a secret — something you can’t tell anyone because you don’t trust anyone,” she adds.
As usual with Bond films, most of the plot details of “Spectre” have been kept under wraps. The official description: “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.”
The name SPECTRE was featured in Ian Fleming’s Bond novels and stands for Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion. It’s a fictional global criminal syndicate and terrorist organization, led by supervillain Ernst Stavro Blofeld, and first appeared in the novel “Thunderball” and in the film “Dr. No” in 1962.
In the trailer, Bond confronts an enemy, Mr. White, played by Jesper Christensen. “You’re a kite dancing in a hurricane, Mr. Bond,” he warns.
