SPECTRE, for those who aren’t Bond aficionados, stands for Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion, a fictional global terrorist organisation featured in the James Bond novels by Ian Fleming. Led by evil genius and supervillain Ernst Stavro Blofeld, the supranational organisation first formally appeared in the novel ‘Thunderball‘ (1961) and in the movie ‘Dr. No‘ (1962).
Here’s the official plot summary for ‘SPECTRE‘:
“A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. 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”
‘SPECTRE‘ will be helmed Mendes, and it’s set to be released in October 2015. Principle photography is due to begin on 8th December, 2014.
