Cast your eyes on four new images from EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Sony Pictures Entertainment of the beautiful ladies from SPECTRE.

The images, via USA Today, show Naomi Harris (1) as Ms Moneypenny, who says: “[Skyfall] made her reassess what she was doing as a profession and what she wanted to do with the rest of her life. She wants to support in a different way. There’s a maturity in that decision and a groundedness you see with her.”

Next, Monica Bellucci (2) is Lucia Sciarra, the widow of a dead mob-boss: “She comes from a man’s world, but when the attraction between them takes place and she realizes her feminine power on him, then she trusts him to save her.”

We also have Stephanie Sigman as Estrella (3) who says her character is like her and “likes to have fun and we’re joyful people. I found her really easy to play and go with the flow and just be me.”

Finally is Léa Seydoux (4) as Madeleine Swann, “The doctor daughter of an assassin, Swann comes into contact with Bond at her Austrian clinic, and while there is a spark between them, their first meeting is abrupt, to say the least.”

We think this is a great collection of ladies for Bond, beautiful, smart and no doubt more than a match for the intrepid secret agent.


The new SPECTRE trailer lands tomorrow morning at 8:00am BST

Directed by the Academy Award winning Sam Mendes (Skyfall), Spectre also stars Daniel Craig (Casino Royale, Munich), Ben Wishaw (Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, I’m Not There), Ralph Fiennes (The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Invisible Woman), Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained, Inglourious Basterds), David Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy, The Man with the Iron Fists), Andrew Scott (Locke, “Sherlock”) and Rory Kinnear (Quantum of Solace, The Imitation Game).

In the movie, a cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.

SPECTRE (SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion), as Bond fans know, is a fictional global terrorist organization featured in Ian Fleming’s novels, as well as the films and video games based on those novels. The organization was led by the villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld, although the cast is definitely playing it coy about whether or not Blofeld will actually appear in the new film.

Spectre, written by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade, hits theaters and IMAX on November 6, 2015.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
