Meanwhile, the official film critics of various publications have delivered there verdict on Spectre.
The reviews are mostly favorable save a few exceptions.
"Bond is back and Daniel Craig is back in a terrifically exciting, spectacular, almost operatically delirious 007 adventure - endorsing intelligence work as old-fashioned derring-do and incidentally taking a stoutly pro-Snowden line against the creepy voyeur surveillance that undermines the rights of a free individual. It's pure action mayhem with a real sense of style." -- The Guardian
"Daniel Craig may or may not return as James Bond, but this relatively listless installment raises flags that the secret agent may be a dinosaur in the age of drones and Wikileaks." -- The Wrap
"Sam Mendes' second consecutive Bond outing again passes its physical with flying colors: Ricocheting from London to Rome to Morocco across action sequences of deliriously daft extravagance, the pic accumulates a veritable Pompeii of mighty, crumbling structures. What's missing is the unexpected emotional urgency of "Skyfall," as the film sustains its predecessor's nostalgia kick with a less sentimental bent." -- Variety
"It's a swaggering show of confidence from returning director Sam Mendes and his brilliant cinematographer, Hoyte van Hoytema, who shot Spectre on luxurious 35mm film - a marked change of texture from Skyfall's gleaming digital froideur" --- The Telegraph
Spectre will hit theaters in the US on Nov. 6.
