New James Bond is titled “Spectre” (See Video) with Double Oscar Winner as Villain


The new James Bond movie is called “Spectre.” It was announced this morning in the UK. Two time Oscar winner Christoph Waltz is going to play a character from Dr. No who’s come back to haunt Bond. (In the “Dr. No” movie, the character ran an evil group called Spectre.) Monica Bellucci will play Bond’s love interest– and that’s a coup for actresses since she’s 50 in real life. (And more gorgeous than ever.) Lea Seydoux is the Bond girl.
