Advance box office for Spectre to open two months before film release
Anticipation for Spectre, the next instalment in the Bond series, is already high, but it's likely to increase exponentially next month as the box office opens across UK and Ireland - two months prior to the film's release.
At 7am on Monday September 7 it will open, giving fans the chance to book their tickets in advance to see the Sam Mendes helmed film.
Also, for the first time, the film will open to the public on October 26 on the same night as the world premiere in London so the buzz will undoubtedly be deafening. It opens in the US on November 7.
It's the 24th film in the Bond franchise, and the second directed by Mendes who helmed the spectacularly successful Skyfalll which earned over €1.1 billion worldwide.
Daniel Craig will reprise his role as 007 who, in this instalment, finds himself 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.
