Spectre Blu-ray

The new James Bond movie Spectre Blu-ray has been announced by MGM Home Entertainment, scheduled for a February 9th, 2016 release.

The movie is the twenty-fourth James Bond film produced by Eon Productions, and is the direct sequel to the 2012 film Skyfall.

Spectre was written by John Logan, Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and Jez Butterworth.

The story pits James Bond against SPECTRE, and effectively ties Daniel Craig’s series of films together.

It is the first appearance of SPECTRE in an Eon Productions film since the 1971 film Diamonds are Forever.

The cast includes Daniel Craig as Bond, along with Christoph Waltz, Lea Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, Dave Bautista, Naomie Harris, Monica Bellucci and Ralph Fiennes.

Spectre was directed by Sam Mendes, who also helmed Revolutionary Road, Road to Perdition, American Beauty, and Skyfall.

The movie was met with largely positive reviews, with a Rotten Tomatoes score of 64% and an IMDb score of 7/10.

Spectre has done well in the cinema, taking in $198.5M at the US box office.

Planned features for the disc are not yet available, though I would expect a DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack.

A featurette, gallery, and a series of video blogs are also planned.

The retail price is $39.99, and you can pre-order it from Amazon for $22.99, saving 43%!

Alternatively you can add it to your Blu-rayStats Wishlist.

Spectre Blu-ray Synopsis:

A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond 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 organization 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 (Lea 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.
