"A cryptic clue from Bonds past"..... Do they perhaps mean something from Skyfall/Kinncaid or from Vesper in Casino Royale? I hope Bond doesn't end up having a family relative involved in Spectre or something silly like that. Perhaps Quantum has morphed into Spectre. Or, the old M (Judi Dench), has been involved in Spectre in some way, this questions Bonds perception of her etc..... Just some thoughts.
Amazing news!! I do believe in the team Sam Mendes-Daniel Craig. I'm wondering if Tom Ford will be involved again, and will create a brand new stunning sunglasses for the film.
Am I the only one reminded of OHMSS by that teaser poster?
