Meet The Spectre Bond Girls

The title of the 24th Bond film has been revealed and Daniel Craig has got two new leading ladies.


Director Sam Mendes announced the new film will be called Spectre (it stands for Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion) at a launch event at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire on Thursday. He also introduced the latest members of the cast.

After rumours emerged in October, it was confirmed that French actress Lea Seydoux, 29, will play Bond girl Madeleine Swann. She'll be sharing the glamorous title with Italian star Monica Bellucci, 50, who will take on the character of Lucia Sciarra in the next installment of the movie franchise.


Oscar-winner Christopher Waltz will also star in the film, along with Sherlock's Andrew Scott, who will play a character called Denbigh, and Guardians of the Galaxy actor Dave Bautista, who will appear as Mr Hinx.

British actress Naomie Harris will reprise her role as Miss. Moneypenny, Ben Whishaw will be back as Q and Ralph Fiennes will play M.

"We've got an amazing cast and, I think, a better script than we had last time," Craig told the BBC at the launch event.

He's got a brand new car to drive too. Mr Bond's Aston Martin DB10 was also unveiled during the announcement.
