5 things to know about new Bond flick 'Spectre'

Some people call "Spectre" the 25th James Bond movie. That's because of "Never Say Never Again" — the only Bond film not produced by Eon Productions.

The title stands for "Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion," a global criminal syndicate and one of Bond's longest-running enemies.

Speaking of Bond — no one's sure if Daniel Craig is coming back.

"Make it great," Craig advised the next actor to play Bond. "I mean, it's a wonderful, wonderful job to do. Whoever does it in the future, it's just ... it's a blessing, so take advantage of it."

By Newsy's count, Craig is the drunkest, least womanizing Bond. He averages five on-screen drinks per film and romances one woman per film so far.

If "Spectre" hits 10 figures at the box office, it will only be the second Bond film to gross $1 billion. "Skyfall" was the first.
