Ah Mr. Bond we have certainly been expecting you as movie bosses have announced 007 will return next year in October to cinemas. The 23rd Bond film will be released on October 26 2012in the UK a full fortnight before the US release. Daniel Craig is returning for his third time as the suave and sophisticated agent in the as of yet untitled film.

The director will be Sam Mendes the British film maker won an Oscar for American Beauty. The work on the film was suspended last year in April because of the uncertainty over MGM studios. The release of the new film will come just a few days following the 50th anniversary of the very first James Bond film that was released October 5, 1962.

The rest of the cast is yet to be determined. Craig helped to rejuvenate the film franchise with the highest 007 box office draw of £367 million when he debuted in Casino Royale in 2006. The most recent film Quantum of Solace was in 2008 and generated £353 million.
