Is Spectre the longest Bond movie yet? Prepare for a 2 hour 40 minute running time

Daniel Craig's latest Bond movie looks poised to be the longest 007 outing yet.

Spectre's running time will be clocking in at a bum-numbing 2 hours and 40 minutes, according to cinema listings for the UK's biggest chains.

Both Odeon and Vue list Sam Mendes's Skyfall follow-up as 160 minutes, while Empire has a more modest 155-minute running time.

There's no official BBFC listing for Spectre yet, so things may pan out differently for the final cut. But these listings are a strong indication that the film could be the biggest 007 yet.

To get an idea of how it shapes up against its predecessors, here are the five longest Bond films to date:

  • Casino Royale - 144 mins
  • Skyfall - 143 mins
  • On Her Majesty's Secret Service - 142 mins
  • Licence to Kill - 133 mins
  • Die Another Day - 133 mins

  • You'll be able to set your Q-issued stopwatches and find out for yourself when Spectre opens in UK cinemas on October 26 and November 6 in the US.

    In other Bond news, it was recently revealed that Sam Smith will perform Spectre's title track 'Writing's on the Wall'.

    "We recorded it in January, and I've been waiting to tell people for such a long time," Smith said, adding: "I'm so excited for people to hear it. I love the song so much."
