Every couple of years, like the Olympics or astronomy-based-end-of-the-world predictions, we get a new James Bond movie. And somehow, its theme song has become almost as much of an event as the movie release. Enter: Sam Smith's theme for Spectre — "The Writing's on the Wall."

The video is fine.

It inter-splices the bare minimum of the footage they can show pre-release and casts a moody shadow over the anticipation of Daniel Craig's return to the character. It also shows Sam Smith looking at ... something.



Like, what are you looking at, Sam?



Eyes over here, bud.

The song itself has split opinions with The New York Post calling it "boring and formulaic", where The New Yorker liked it just fine

Regardless, it's already been the first Bond theme to top the UK charts.

Granted, he's got a tough act to follow.

Adele's 2012 theme for Skyfall was widely received as the gold standard of Bond themes.



What do you think? Like it? Love it?

New details about the latest Bond film were announced on Thursday at a press event, including the title, the car, and the cast.

"Spectre," which is is expected to hit theaters November 2015, will be directed by Sam Mendes. Daniel Craig will return as James Bond, and the new Bond car will be an Aston Martin DB10.

But most importantly… fans of "Sherlock" will collectively squeal knowing that Andrew Scott (Moriarty) is joining the cast as a character named "Denbigh" and, as was rumored, Christoph Waltz is on board as "Oberhauser."

SPECTRE (Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion) is a terrorist agency featured in the series led by Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Its first appearance in the Bond films was "Dr. No" in 1962.

So which - if any - of these folks is Blofeld? Guess we'll have to wait until next year to find out.

World renowned physicist Stephen Hawking already has a new movie about his life, but maybe in the near future we will also see him in a work of fiction opposite 007.

"My ideal role would be a baddie in a James Bond film. I think the wheelchair and the computer voice would fit the part," he told Wired Magazine in a recent interview for their January issue.

Hawking has already made a number of cameos in TV shows including "The Simpsons" and "Star Trek," but portraying the villain in a Bond movie would be some next level awesomeness.

Although he may have to fight Christoph Waltz for the part.

Let's face it: In the same way we all have a zombie plan, our instincts are movie-honed for a secret-agent scenario -- as soon as these guys are given a destination and a countdown clock, the inner Bond comes out just as the train station turns into an obstacle course.

One of the coolest marketing stunts ever.
