Bond is back in first full-length trailer for Spectre

The 25th James Bond film is looking to shake and stir, if the new trailer for Spectre has anything to say about it. Facing off against the eponymous "Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge, and Extortion," a Bond-universe crime syndicate that hasn't been seen by fans since 1971's Diamonds Are Forever, Daniel Craig looks sharp in the newest clips alongside a stunning cast that features Monica Bellucci, Léa Seydoux, and skeletons (?). And, boy, does the trailer go full Bond, too: There's a car-and-helicopter chase, cackling enemies, and some dialog that goes, “Why should I trust you?” Answered with, “Because right now I'm your best chance of staying alive.”

Spectre will be released stateside in early November, with the Brits getting the film first on October 26. Watch the full trailer, below (but if you're worried about spoilers, you might want to stick to the teaser). Jeva Lange
