This James Bond is more Jason Bourne and Jack Bauer than 007. A turtle neck-wearing Bond (Daniel Craig) is what you get when you try to balance the line between “modern and serious,” which the 24th film in the franchise, Spectre, has been promising us all through.

It is not as if we don't like the look, it's just that we like Bond of sharp suits and practically no existentialism so much better. So, while the look takes us back to Roger Moore's Live and Let Die, the intent and lethal expression on the super sleuth's face is all Daniel Craig.

His trusted Walther PPK is in his hands, all loaded and ready to go.

Sony unveiled the official teaser poster late on Tuesday for the upcoming film.

The 24th James Bond film, directed by Sam Mendes, stars Craig reprising his role as agent 007. The movie also features Monica Bellucci, Ralph Fiennes, Christoph Waltz, Ben Whishaw and Mexican actor Stephanie Sigman.
