London Lands 'Spectre' World Premiere

Daniel Craig Spectre - 2015

The 24th James Bond will premiere and go wide in the U.K. on Oct. 26, 12 days before it launches in the U.S.

In typically English fashion, James Bond will be ditching the generally preferred warmth of Los Angeles in favor of the (probable) cold drizzle of London for the world premiere of Spectre.

The 24th outing for the iconic superspy will drop into the British capital on Oct. 26 and, for the first time, launch the same night across theaters in the U.K. and Ireland.

Spectre, which sees Daniel Craig's 007 come up against a new batch of villains and Bond girls, this time including Christoph Waltz, Dave Bautista, Monica Bellucci and Lea Seydoux, will then open in the U.S. on Nov. 6 as part of its international rollout. 

The film follows 2012's Skyfall, which went on to become the most successful Bond in history, setting a U.K. record by being the first to earn over £100 million ($156 million) at the local box office and amassing a global haul in excess of $1.1 billion.
