Release date: Nov. 6
Cause for excitement: Not only is Daniel Craig back, but Sam Mendes is once again at the helm after delivering the excellent "Skyfall" which, in my humble opinion, should have been Oscar-nominated for Best Picture. This time around, guardian of the galaxy Dave Bautista, the legendary Monica Bellucci and intriguing Lea Seydoux join the fun.
Possible warnings signs: The fact that leaked E-mails reveal both Sony and MGM executives were repeatedly worried about the stakes in the third act. Oh, and the presence of Christoph Waltz, who is starting to be the most incredibly one-note actor to ever win two Academy Awards. Does the fact Adele is likely not singing the theme song this time around count?
