Bond is back, baby. With the release of ‘Spectre’ inching closer, a new behind the scenes video has just been released, and it probably won’t surprise you to hear that the franchise is still as action packed as ever.
With its Nov. 6 release date, Spectre will become– believe it or not– the 24th film in the James Bond franchise. While no official trailer has been released for the newest installment just yet, we are lucky enough to get a behind the scenes sneak peek at how the filming is going and, needless to say, it looks intense and awesome. Also needless to say, Daniel Craig still looks good.
James Bond ‘Spectre’: Video Behind The Scenes
We open on a soaring peak high in the Austrian mountains.
This thrilling first look at the newest Bond film, Spectre, actually takes place on the film’s first day of filming, and it shows the film’s cast and crew coming to terms with the grandiose scale of their new “set.”
“Above all, we have to deliver an amazing actions sequence,” said Gregg Wilson, an associate producer on Spectre. “This is going to be one of the major action sequences of the movie– a jewel on the crown. It’s gonna be spectacular.”
As it turns out, Austria was not a coincidental location. It had actually been chosen for a number of specific reasons, according to the film’s production designer, Dennis Gassner. “It was a long journey for me through many countries to try and find this,” said Dennis. “We found a very unique, modern facility that we were looking for.”
Bond Is Back
The plot of Spectre is set into motion when 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, according to Pinewood Studios.
Spectre marks Daniel’s fourth stint as 007. Also returning to the franchise, director Sam Mendes, who previously directed the Bond film Skyfall.
