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 infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known for layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE. SPECTRE (Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion) Led by evil genius and super-villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld, the international organization first formally appeared in the novel Thunderball (1961) and in the film Dr. No (1962). SPECTRE is not aligned to any nation or political ideology, enabling the later Bond books and Bond films to be regarded as somewhat apolitical though the former Gestapo members are a clear sign of Fleming's warning of the Nazi fascists surviving after WWII first detailed in the novel Moonraker(1954). SPECTRE began in the novels as a small group of criminals but became a vast international organization with its own SPECTRE Island training base in the films, to replace the Soviet SMERSH.
Directed by Sam Mendes (Skyfall) and written by John Logan (Penny Dreadful), Neal Purvis (Skyfall), Robert Wade (Skyfall) and staring Daniel Craig (Skyfall), Ralph Fiennes (Harry Potter), Christoph Waltz (Django unchained), and Monica Bellucci (The Matrix). Spectre is set to be released on November 6, 2015
