Back as Bond, and back in black, Daniel Craig strikes a pose in the above picture from Spectre, the 24th film in the long-running James Bond film series. There have been some social media snippets released from the set, but this is the first “official” photo from the film, which is currently shooting at locations all around the globe. It’s hard to think of a setting more evocative of Bond than the Alps, in this case, specifically, the Austrian Alps, and the last time Bond went skiing on film has in 1999’s The World is Not Enough so it’s about time! So get you skis shined up, grab your Walther PPK, and hit the slopes with the cast and crew of Spectre in a new behind the scenes video.
The below video features new Bond girl Léa Seydoux, and new hired goon Dave Bautista giving the usual platitudes about the production, its scope, and being caught up in the middle of a James Bond movie. The scenes that the featurette is behind doesn’t show a lot except cars driving, which is further expanded upon in that production photo above, but you have to admit that the production values remain top-notch, and those vistas are going to look awesome on the big screen. Hoyte Van Hoytema, who was the cinematographer on Interstellar is shooting Spectre for director Sam Mendes, which is almost too bad because looking at this video I would love to see how Skyfall cinematographer Roger Deakins might have captured the beauty of the Alps; Skyfall is easily one of the best looking films of the last 10 years.
Anyway, enough pontificating! Here’s the behind the scenes video:
In case you can’t remember what Spectre is going to be about:
A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. 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.
And keep in mind that Spectre will be in theaters everywhere on November 6.
