Remember those scenic publicity photos released last month of Daniel Craig, Dave Bautista, and Léa Seydoux on location in the Austrian mountains of the Sölden ski resort where they were filming the new James Bond film Spectre? While the pictures were not stills from the movie, they did provide the first real look at the 24th James Bond film and penultimate installment with Daniel Craig as Bond.
Now, Sony Pictures has released a behind-the-scenes first look at footage from the upcoming James Bond film shot at the Sölden set. Watch the 2-minute video here below and check out the first image from the film as well, along with the official synopsis.
This first video shows the set in the snow-covered Austrian mountains on the film’s first day of shooting last year, and contains some talk from the filmmakers, as well as a glimpse of a gun-wielding Craig as Bond in what will be one of the movie’s biggest action sequences.
Principal photography began on the Sam Mendes-directed sequel on December 8, 2014, with set locations including Sölden, Obertilliach, and Lake Altaussee in Austria; Mexico City; Rome; and Tangier & Erfoud, Morocco, as well as Pinewood Studios in London. The production moved this week to Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, UK, the 1874 birthplace of WWII Prime Minister Winston Churchill, where cranes and cars reportedly arrived on Tuesday.
Spectre, which hits theaters on November 6, 2015, stars Daniel Craig as Agent 007 James Bond, Dave Bautista (as Mr. Hinx), and Léa Seydoux (as Madeleine Swann), along with Christoph Waltz (as Oberhauser), Ralph Fiennes (as M.) Andrew Scott (from Moriarty from TV’s Sherlock as Denbigh), Monica Bellucci (as Lucia Sciarra), Ben Whishaw (as Q.), Rory Kinnear (as Tanner), and Naomie Harris (as Moneypenny), and will feature The Aston Martin DB10 as Bond’s new vehicle.
A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.
