If you’re a fan of international intrigue, dashing secret agents, sultry femme fatales, cool spy gadgets, and you drink your martinis shaken, not stirred, this is a week you’ve been waiting for. The latest James Bond adventure, Spectre, finally hits theaters this week, and we’re all pretty psyched. Check out our review HERE.

The 24th James Bond movie, which reteams star Daniel Craig and director Sam Mendes, is hugely referential to the rest of the franchise, and we’ve put together a quick list of some of the super spy’s previous outings that you may want to check out as a refresher before queuing up for Spectre on Friday, November 6 (unless you live in the U.K. and have already seen it).

We’ll try to keep this as un-spoilery as possible and stick to things that have been shown in the trailers and such, but just a heads up, there may be some things revealed beyond this point that you’d rather not know if you prefer to go into Spectre cold. Tread lightly.

Skyfall
Skyfall
We'll start with the obvious one, but in all honesty, this could very well read "watch all the Daniel Craig Bond films" instead of just Skyfall. However, the action of Spectre does follow on the heels of Skyfall, and in fact events of that film provide the main impetus for the story this time out and the new film continues to dig into James Bond’s past much like its predecessor. But more than being built on only the last outing, Spectre draws heavily from the last three films. In many ways it watches like the culmination of Craig’s run as the super spy, almost like a concluding chapter to his narrative. It tips its cap to tons of other Bond films, but draws the most heavily from Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, and Skyfall, so it wouldn’t hurt to revisit those movies.
