The 24th James Bond film now has a name: Spectre, which is set for release in late 2015. Bond fans know Spectre as the global terrorist organization from classic Bond films (the name is an acronym for all things obviously evil: Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge, and Extortion).
The name was revealed during a livestreamed announcement event, where director Sam Mendes also revealed the new car (Aston Martin DB10) and full cast. New members include Andrew Scott (who played Moriarty on BBC’s Sherlock and will star as Denbigh here), Christoph Waltz (playing a character named Oberhauser — not, as previously rumored, classic villain Blofeld), Dave Bautista, Monica Bellucci, and Léa Seydoux.
