Suspenseful, haunting first trailer for 'Spectre' promises another amazing Bond installment

Furious 7 is going to feature the premiere of a bunch of new trailers, which makes me even more excited for the film. One of the new trailers that will be playing in IMAX theaters before Furious 7 is a brief teaser for Spectre, the next installment in the Bond franchise. Skyfall is one of my favorite films of the decade so far, and probably my favorite Bond film ever, so I'm obviously very excited for this flick. Sam Mendes is back in the director's chair and John Logan is penning the script again, and of course, Daniel Craig is playing 007 for the fourth time. Not to mention the new additions to the cast like Christoph Waltz and Dave Bautista. This is one of my most anticipated movies of the year and this first look delivered the goods. Check out the trailer below:

What a fantastic teaser trailer. Seriously, I don't think that this could have been any better. The first thing that this bit of marketing does right is that it focuses on story. There are no flashy stunts or effects sequences. It's all about atmosphere, mood and hinting at some major developments. As Drew McWeeny said over at Hifix, this trailer reveals more than you think. We see the return of Mr. White and the implication that Oberhauser (Christoph Waltz) is Bond's brother, which would seem to be a major twist. Now, there was no real sense in hiding it considering that the details of the plot were revealed during the Sony hack. I would also say that they might as well start calling Waltz's character Blofeld already. Everybody knows it's him. We don't need a John Harrison/Khan deal. However, Spectre went through some major rewrites recently and some things could get quite interesting. We'll definitely find out more info soon, but for now, I'm just going to be happy with this awesome teaser. Spectre will be released on November 6, 2015.
