Spectre – The road leading up to James Bond’s latest adventure

When Daniel Craig stepped up as the latest in a long line of actors to portray James Bond, it came with a bigger responsibility than usual: Not only were the producers recasting the lead role in their hugely successful film franchise, but they were also rebooting the series. 2006’s Casino Royale, an adaptation of Ian Fleming’s first James Bond novel, explored the character as a younger, more flawed, and less experienced secret agent. It reignited the series, and this year’s Spectre might just be the resultant inferno.
