The 24th film in the James Bond franchise has a name - 'Spectre'.
Details of the production, cast, story and even the car were announced in a live press event earlier today by director Sam Mendes, who... somehow managed to make the whole announcement sound less interesting than his plans for the weekend with his missus.
Come on man, it's A NEW BOND FILM.
If you couldn't sit through the whole 10 minutes of that, here's the best bits you need to know.
Agents of SPECTRE will most likely be the main antagonists of the film. SPECTRE has previously been referenced in earlier Bond films 'Dr. No' and 'Thunderball'.
Continuing their 50-year relationship with the film franchise, Aston Martin have a pretty new model which was revealed during the press event. We'll get to see it in action when the movie arrives next year.
Revealing a little of their shooting schedule, Mendes confirms that the Bond team will be spending seven months in Rome, Mexico City, Tangier & Erfoud, Morocco, Sölden, Obertilliach, and Lake Altaussee, Austria.
Not to mention plenty of shooting in the home of Bond - Pinewood Studios, just outside of London.
Not only is Daniel Craig reprising his role as Bond, and rejoined by Ben Wishaw (Q), Naomie Harris (Moneypenny) and Ralph Fiennes (Mallory/M), but five new additional big names were revealed today.

So amongst others that's Moriarty, Drax the Destroyer, and Persephone. Bond's going to have his hands full.
You have almost a year. Get ready.
