1. The title
SPECTRE. Yes Bond aficionados, Sam Mendes isn’t messing around, already hinting at the involvement of Blofeld by naming the film after the titular terrorist organisation which he heads up, abbreviated from Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion. It also continues the theme of one word Bond titles, which is no bad thing, and if you look closely at the logo you might even have spotted that the bullet hole damage mirrors the arms of the original SPECTRE logo. You can also see the official motion poster here:
2. Christoph Waltz will play the villain
"So Blofeld is back!" tweeted Sir Roger Moore of the film's title, and possibly Christoph Waltz directly. Now officially Bond's latest nemesis, Franz Oberhauser, it's fairly likely he's stepping into the shoes of one Ernest Stravo Blofeld, that iconic Bond villain.
3. Monica Bellucci will be the oldest ever Bond girl
GoldfingerTomorrow Never Dies. Mission Impossible
4. Another plot involving Bond’s past
Written by the same team behind Skyfall, and continuing Bond’s journey from the last film, cryptic message from the spy’s past will send him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation (might Bellucci’s character be a ghost from his past), while M stays in London and battles political forces to keep the secret service alive.

10. It's got a bigger budget than Skyfall
The action scenes in this film could be the biggest ever for a Bond production, with EON executive Barbara Broccoli telling the BBC that the film will have a bigger budget than Skyfall. We ex-Spectre big things...
