The first teaser trailer for the next James Bond film, Spectre, has been released—and it looks pretty good.

The film, actor Daniel Craig’s fourth outing as the British secret agent, picks up where Skyfall left off and features a character from Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace—continuing the theme of direct sequels, rather than standalone films, as in previous incarnations of Ian Fleming’s character. In it, Craig’s Bond confronts a dark family secret with the same stony stoicism he has displayed in the past.

The trailer features the actresses Naomie Harris as Moneypenny and Monica Bellucci, at 50 the oldest “Bond girl” ever. It also offers a glimpse of a shadowed Christoph Waltz, playing a character named Franz Oberhauser—who may or may not turn out to be the cat-caressing Bond villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld. (Spectre, after all, did once stand for Special Executive for Counterintelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion, the worldwide syndicate of baddies that Blofeld helmed in earlier movies, including Thunderball and Dr. No.)

Enjoy the trailer below. It could be Craig’s last run at the character before Idris Elba becomes the first black actor to play the super-spy.
