It’s a new era for the Bond franchise. The 24th film, which was codenamed Bond 24 at first, is now officially known as Spectre. The second official trailer has just been released, and it’s absolutely riveting.

It is rumoured that this could be the last Bond film that Sam Mendes directs, and that is a shame. The action scenes are just pure Bond, and the cinematography is simply marvellous.

It has got Monica Bellucci, who is simply captivating yet smouldering, and Christopher Waltz as the villain and the mischievous Lea Seydoux too. A great cast needs some great cars too, and this is where Spectre comes up with the goodies.

Q says it will go from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 3.2 seconds, and who are we to question him. The Aston Martin DB10 basks in all its glory in this trailer. It’s breathtaking, simply glorious, really. The bad guys use the Jaguar C-X75, and it does look positively menacing in the video.

There are car chase scenes by a river, along snow-capped mountain roads, and an insane plane stunt by Bond too. Oh and before I forget, the DB10 also has flamethrowers thrown in for good measure.

It’s all about fast cars, fast women, and just your typical diet of old-school Bond magic. We can’t wait for the release in Malaysia, which will be on November 6, 2015.
