James Bond is back and you’ll never believe this, but he’ll apparently be blowing things up, chasing down bad guys, and romancing ladies in his latest globe-trotting adventure, Spectre. Marking Daniel Craig’s fourth turn in the role, the new installment of the long-running spy series is also a return for Skyfall director Sam Mendes and screenwriters Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, and John Logan (Purivis and Wade have written or co-written every Bond picture since 1999’s The World is Not Enough).
But the new personnel are what’s really exciting this time around, with Léa Seydoux and Monica Bellucci as Bond girls (and seriously, what’s wrong with these people that it took them that long to cast the latter) and Christoph Waltz as the villain. His unveiling is properly theatrical in the new Spectre trailer, which may include the best Waltz evil grin that we’ve yet captured on film—and that’s no faint praise.
Spectre hits theaters on November 6.
