‘Spectre’ World Premiere Set for Oct. 26 in London

The world premiere for “Spectre,” the 24th James Bond film, has been set for Oct. 26 in London by Eon Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Sony Pictures Entertainment.

The producers noted that the for the first time ever, the film will open on the same night as the premiere at cinemas in the U.K. and Ireland. “Spectre” will then begin its rollout in territories around the world with the U.S. launch set for Nov. 6.

The previous Bond pic, “Skyfall,” delivered the best performance in the series with grosses topping $1.1 billion worldwide.

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.”

Filming locations for the latest installment in the massively popular franchise include London, Austria, Italy, Mexico and Morocco.

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 new film, the SPECTRE organization is headed by Christoph Waltz’s Franz Oberhauser. Daniel Craig returns in the lead role, with Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny and Ben Whishaw as Q. New cast includes Monica Bellucci and Lea Seydoux.

Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli are producing, and Sam Mendes is directing from a script by John Logan, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade.
