Escape Magazine is one of those magazines available free in Empire Cinemas in the UK, rather like Flicks, back in the day. It should come as no surprise that James Bond and the new movie, SpectreSpectre, is on the cover of the September / October issue.

SpectreSpectre

Certificate: 12A Released: 26 October Director: Sam Mendes Starring: Daniel Craig, Christoph Waltz, Léa Seydoux

The hotly anticipated SpectreSpectre is just around the corner and there’s still a frenzy of speculation. Despite parts of the script being leaked in January, fans are keen to see how Mendes will follow up from box offi ce smash SkyfallSkyfall. Daniel Craig is back as Bond, questioning where he stands after an MI5 and MI6 merger (offi ce politics hey…) and M is fi ghting off external forces trying to close in on them. An unlikely source leads Bond to evil organisation SpectreSpectre and he must do what Bond does best – save the world before it’s too late.

Your Move Mr. Bond

In his 24th outing, James Bond picks up the pieces left behind from SkyfallSkyfall and sets his sights on a new, yet very familiar, enemy… SpectreSpectre

It’s always something of an event when the release of a new Bond film comes round. But this year, expectation has never been higher for the adventures of the world’s most famous secret agent. With 2012’s SkyfallSkyfall breaking all sorts of box office records and wowing critics and audiences across the globe, director Sam Mendes and 007 Daniel Craig have their work cut out to even come close to the success of Bond’s last outing. While beating the billion dollars SkyfallSkyfall made at the world box offi ce and the recordbreaking domestic haul of £100 million seems unlikely – there will never be a better advert than parachuting into the Olympics with the Queen – there’s no reason why SpectreSpectre can’t match its predecessor for quality. As usual, details around the fi lm are being kept quiet, with plenty of conjecture fl ying around as to what SpectreSpectre will bring (despite the much publicised script leak from the Sony hacking incident last year), but all the right ingredients seem to be there. Returnees to the franchise include Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris and Ben Whishaw, who will provide the backbone of support for Bond, building on the characters from their SkyfallSkyfall debuts. Fiennes is now M, Harris is officially Moneypenny and Whishaw is, of course, Q – an essential support team that has traditionally served Bond so well. And he’ll need them while going up against the sinister organisation that is… SpectreSpectre (Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion). Following directly on from SkyfallSkyfall, Bond receives a cryptic message that sends him on a trail that will ultimately lead him to the inner circle of SpectreSpectre, where he will meet the shadowy figure of Franz Oberhauser. Played by Christoph Waltz, Oberhauser certainly shares a past with Bond and may or may not be the infamous Bond villain we know as Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Where SkyfallSkyfall was tied to Bond’s early childhood, Mendes has said that SpectreSpectre will be tied into the second part of his childhood, where his past will lead him on his mission. And that mission will see action all across the globe, from Mexico to Rome, Austria to Morocco, indicating that Mendes will be pumping up the action this time round.

SpectreSpectre is in cinemas from 26 October

SIX DEGREES OF BLOFELD
In Bond heritage, where there’s SpectreSpectre there’s usually one Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Here’s a few Blofeld players from the past and how Christoph Waltz is inextricably linked to them. (OK, it’s contrived, but it’s a bit of fun. Come on, loosen up.)
