Welcome back, Bond. Daniel Craig's international man of mystery will next be seen in Spectre, the franchise's 24th film, which is set to open on Nov. 6 in the United States. A longer peak at just what Bond will get up to in his latest caper was made available on June 9, when the newest Spectre trailer was released during the NBA Finals. In the promo, we finally get to see Christoph Waltz doing his thing as creepy European villain Franz Oberhauser.
Though we won't know until the film premieres, many fans are speculating that Franz is the son of Hannes Oberhauser, a character who appeared in Bond creator Ian Fleming's short story "Octopussy" — though not in the 1983 film of the same name. In the story, Hannes is a sort of adopted father to James Bond, which would make Franz like a brother to him. An evil brother, that is.
Of course no Bond film would be complete without a gaggle of disposable babes cavorting about. The trailer has shots of two: Léa Seydoux, as Dr. Madeleine Swann, and Monica Belluci as Lucia Sciarra, the woman at the end of the trailer who looks about to get hot and heavy with the spy. Interestingly, Lucia is also the widow of an assassin who Bond took out earlier in his career. Could she be a baddie, too? She certainly has a motive.
