The Title Of The New James Bond Film Has Been Revealed

What comes after Skyfall?

The new James Bond film is called SPECTRE.

Director Sam Mendes, who also helmed the 2012 007 film Skyfall, made the announcement at an event staged at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire earlier today, during which he revealed the movie's title will be the name of the fictional global terrorist organization from the Bond novels by Ian Fleming. 

Sam said: "The title of the 24th Bond movie is SPECTRE. Those of you who have some knowledge of the Bond franchise and of the legend of Bond will probably have some idea what that refers to, but I couldn't possibly comment."

SPECTRE, which stands for Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion, is led by iconic evil genius Ernst Stavro Blofeld. The infamous cat-loving, scarred super-villain and his organization played a prominent part in the Dr. No and Thunderball movies. He also appeared in You Only Live Twice, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Diamonds Are Forever and For Your Eyes Only.

So far no actor has been cast as Blofeld in the film but rumours are rife the super-spy's nemesis will play a prominent role. 

Previous actors to bring the character to life on the big screen include Telly Savalas, Max Von Sydow, Charles Gray, and most famously Donald Pleasence.

At the event, which was streamed live on 007.com and Facebook.com/JamesBond007, Mendes also revealed the Bond franchise would be continuing its association with the Aston Martin car brand, and he unveiled the new Aston Martin D10 that will feature in the much-anticipated film at the announcement.

He said: "The first cast member that I will introduce to you is a non-human cast member. Over to my right here, I am really excited and thrilled to be able to say that we have continued our 50-year relationship with Aston Martin, which began right at the very beginning of this franchise. Together, we have worked on designing a new car—and so, I can reveal, the new Aston Martin D10. A thing of beauty and you can see what it can do when you come and see the movie."

The 49-year-old actor was joined at the announcement by Daniel Craig, who is reprising his role as Bond, and the other cast members.
