SPECTRE Trailer Introduces the Author of Bond’s Pain

The full trailer for SPECTRE covers everything you’d want from a Bond film, especially following Casino Royale and Skyfall’s more layered approach to the character, as well as more of the over-the-top action sequences and gadget-filled cars from the character’s past.
