At 07:00 UK time on Monday 7th September, the box-office for SPECTRE will open across the UK and Ireland, giving cinema audiences the opportunity to book their tickets in advance to see Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment’s SPECTRE.
For the first time ever, the film will open to the public on the same night as the World Premiere in London, giving audiences the opportunity to be the first in the world to see the hugely-anticipated 24th film in the James Bond franchise.
Following the World Premiere and release in the UK and Ireland on 26th October, SPECTRE will begin its rollout in territories around the world. The film will release in the US on November 6, 2015.
Skyfall, the 23rd James Bond film, was a worldwide box office phenomenon, opening #1 in 70 territories around the world and earning over $1.1 billion worldwide. Skyfall set a new all-time box office record in the UK by becoming the first and only film ever to earn over £100 million, a record which remains unbeaten.
Peter Taylor, Managing Director, Sony Pictures Releasing UK commented ‘The success of Skyfall proves yet again the enduring appetite of audiences for great stories from the world of James Bond. SPECTRE will enhance, continue and develop that world, and we are delighted to give audiences the opportunity to ensure they will be amongst the first to experience it by booking their seats in advance.”
A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond (Daniel Craig) on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as SPECTRE.
Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott), the new head of the Centre for National Security, questions Bond’s actions and challenges the relevance of MI6, led by M (Ralph Fiennes). Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) to help him seek out Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White (Jesper Christensen), who may hold the clue to untangling the web of SPECTRE. As the daughter of an assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot.
As Bond ventures towards the heart of SPECTRE, he learns of a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks, played by Christoph Waltz.
Sam Mendes returns to direct SPECTRE, with Daniel Craig reprising his role as 007 for the fourth time. SPECTRE is produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, from a script by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade and Jez Butterworth.
SPECTRE is set for release in the UK on October 26, 2015, and in the US on November 6, 2015.
