A couple of months back, a cryptic teaser trailer for the new 007 film ‘Spectre’ was released. It looked sinister and intriguing – everything a Bond movie should be, but it was difficult to discern what the film was actually about. Well, wait no more – the official trailer has just been released and the outline of a new thrilling plot has been unveiled. Obviously it is impossible to tell whether the film will be any good, but from the looks of the trailer, it should not disappoint:
For all you diehard Bond fans, you will remember that ‘SPECTRE’ is the acronym for ‘Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion,’ a global terrorist organization featured in the James Bond novels that first appeared on screen in ‘Dr. No’ in 1962. The shadowy organization was last seen 44 years ago in ‘Diamonds Are Forever’ in 1971.
