Daniel Craig as James Bond

The first full trailer for 'Spectre' sees Christoph Waltz introduce himself as "the author" of James Bond's "pain".

The fast-paced clip also includes a dramatic action scene with Léa Seydoux, while British stars Naomie Harris and Ben Whishaw reprise their roles as the rebooted Moneypenny and Q respectively.

What's more, the trailer features brief appearances from Andrew Scott as Max Denbigh, the new head of the Centre for National Security, Ralph Fiennes as M and Dave Bautista, who's been cast in the role of Mr. Hinx.

"This is a bigger movie than 'Skyfall'. It's shot in more places - we were in Mexico City and Tangiers and northern Sahara and Rome and the Alps and London."

James Bond (Craig) comes up against a global crime syndicate, while back at home, the 00 programme is under threat from reckless moderniser C (Scott). With its swagger, dry humour and frequent, well-executed action it's a solid crowdpleaser, but the story is predictable, the characterisation is thin and overall it lacks…
