New footage of Spectre was broadcast during the NBA Finals game 3 and it's a joy to behold.
Kicking off at a measured pace, it soon gains momentum with Daniel Craig as Bond chasing someone through a busy street, punching someone in the face, leaping through the air, flying a plane and igniting a flame-thrower on the back of his Aston Martin DB10.
We see him embrace new Bond girl Monica Belluci towards the end.
All in all it's pretty spectacular. Sam Mendes is helming with Ben Whishaw, Ralph Fiennes, and Rory Kinnear returning while Irish actor Andrew Scott, Christoph Waltz, Stephanie Sigman, and Dave Bautista join the cast.

He’s shot a man dead mid-sentence and beaten another to death in a bathroom in Prague; dodged bullets in a vehicle-crunching car chase in Siena; and crashed a car into Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar before riding over rooftops in a tense motorcycle chase, leaping onto a speeding train, and being shot mid-fight on top of the train causing him to fall to what appears to be his untimely death to the river below – all before the titles roll. And that’s just Daniel Craig’s Bond.
