Batista Lands James Bond Movie Role

Following a livestream reveal at the 007 stage in England’s Pinewood Studios,Skyfall director Sam Mendes confirmed the new title for the 24th James Bond film, Spectre.

The official synopsis is as follows:

“A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind Spectre.”
