Sam Smith Teases the James Bond 'Spectre' Theme Song!

Sam Smith just teased his fans with the news that he is (most likely) singing the theme song for the upcoming James Bond movie Spectre.

The 23-year-old Grammy-winning singer posted a photo on Instagram of himself wearing a ring featuring the Spectre octopus logo.

It has long been rumored that Sam would be singing the theme song, but he has shot down the reports.

“People seem to think I’m doing it but I have no idea what’s going on,” Sam said back in July. “I’m being deadly serious. I think I would know by now.”

Adele sang the theme song for the previous 007 movie, Skyfall.

Daniel Craig Is Dressed to Kill on New 'Spectre' Poster!

Daniel Craig is one dapper dude while dressed in his tuxedo and holding a gun on the new poster for his upcoming James Bond movie Spectre.

Here is the new synopsis for the film: A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organization known as Spectre.

Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott), the new head of the Centre for National Security, questions Bond’s actions and challenges the relevance of MI6, led by M (Ralph Fiennes). Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) to help him seek out Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White (Jesper Christensen), who may hold the clue to untangling the web of SPECTRE. As the daughter of an assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot.

As Bond ventures towards the heart of Spectre, he learns of a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks, played by Christoph Waltz.

Make sure to catch Spectre in theaters on November 6 and see the previous posters below!

Will Damian Lewis Succeed Daniel Craig as James Bond?

Damian Lewis is reportedly one of the favorites to succeed Daniel Craig in the role of James Bond, at least according to UK bookies.

It has been reported that the 44-year-old Homeland actor’s price has been dropped way down from outsider odds of 25/1 to being a near-favorite with odds of 3/1.

Other actors that have great odds right now are Idris Elba with 5/2, Tom Hardy with 4/1, Henry Cavill with 5/1, and Michael Fassbender with 7/1.

“This is an unprecedented gamble, as for no apparent reason we have seen bets of up to £200 [$312] on Damian Lewis being named as the next Bond. This could well be significant and might herald the end of Daniel Craig as the world’s most famous spy,” a William Hill spokesperson told THR.

Also pictured inside: Damian and his wife Helen McCrory arriving for day one of the Royal Ascot on Tuesday (June 16) in Ascot, England.
