The media train is in full flight in anticipation for the next James Bond film, SPECTRE, and we’re right there with it, wrestling a gorilla on the roof and just narrowly ducking in time to make it into the tunnel while the ape-like sharp dressed assassin is spattered viciously into the mountainside above it. The latest releases from Sony Pictured on the film is a series of images from the movie itself, giving us a few more glimpses of what to expect from the 24th cinematic outing for 007, adding to the behind the scenes video we saw for the Austrian mountain filming.
The first of these is the shot above of Daniel Craig all in black with matching ski goggles in the snow on the slopes of a mountain in the Austrian Alps. He’s armed with a little pistol, which doesn’t really look all that manly, but then at least you know he’s not trying to compensate for anything. If you’ve seen the behind the scenes video for SPECTRE filming in the Alps, you’ll know that this section of the film will see him battling it out with equally monochrome baddies that run away like little girls in big black 4x4s at the very sight of the pistol.
The second shot above is the first time we get to see Dave Bautista in character in the movie. He plays Mr. Hinx, an assassin and high ranking member of SPECTRE. It’s hard to tell for sure, but he’s looking like he could be the latest mean assassin to enter the Bond hall of fame, building on the brilliance of Jaws, Odd Job and Lippe.
In addition to the few shots from the film itself, they’ve also released a number of images from behind the scenes on set during filming in Austria, to give us a small insight into the work of director Sam Mendez as he works with the cast to create another instalment in the James Bond franchise. It’s pretty clear from the volume of shots and the behind the scenes video that the snow capped mountain base location in Solden in the Austrian Alps is going to be a pretty big part of SPECTRE once it’s released, so it’ll be fun seeing it all come together for the 6th November 2015.
They’ve also added a couple of press photo call pictures to see some of the stars of the film looking as cool or, in the case of Bond girls Monica Bellucci and Léa Seydoux, as glamorous as they possibly can. The first is taken from the Austria photo call during the filming in Solden, which we’ve already had a pretty big preview of, but the second switches location to Rome, featuring Daniel Craig and Monica Bellucci on the top of a building overlooking the great Italian capital city.
The latest new image to come from the film is of the recently announced 3rd bond girl to star in SPECTRE, Stephanie Sigman (below), who has been announced as playing a character called Estrella.
These have been added to recently, thanks to the release of the teaser trailer, with the first visuals of the nefarious head of SPECRE and boyhood friend of James, Franz Oberhauser, played by Christoph Waltz. He’s in the shadows of the shot below, which helps to increase the anticipation for the full trailer, which should see his full reveal in the role.
