Daniel Craig returns as James Bond in Spectre this November. Will Skyfall's massive success continue with this new installment? BoxOffice takes a closer look.

Spectre
(Sony)

PROS:

- There's a ton of mainstream goodwill following the commercial and critical hit that was Skyfall. That's bound to help Spectre get off to a great start.
- Christoph Waltz as a Bond villain sounds like a winning combination to us.
- After a lackluster summer, Sony has a lot riding on this one and an aggressive marketing campaign is sure to happen.
- Reactions on Facebook and Twitter to the trailers have been positive.

CONS:

- If fans label the film as "not as good as Skyfall" that could hinder grosses.
- The impact of Star Wars anticipation could be felt pretty early in November. 
-
Opening against The Peanuts Movie won't be easy. Families with young children may skip Spectre in order to take the whole family to the movies.
