It was only a matter of time before we could enjoy the first glimpses of footage from the latest instalment in the 007 saga, 'Spectre'. The #Film, which will be the 24th movie about the British spy, is currently in production and the cast and crew have been seen filming in the Pinewood Studios in London and in the streets of Rome.
Daniel Craig, the current face of the Ian Fleming character and the sixth actor to portray it in an official movie, is joined in 'Spectre' by new faces, like Christoph Waltz (whose voice we get to hear in the trailer, along with his silhouette in the shadows), Monica Bellucci, Lea Seydoux, Dave Bautista or Sherlock star Andrew Scott.
Repeating their roles from the previous movie, 'Skyfall', are Ralph Fiennes as the new M, Ben Whishaw and Naomie Harris. Director Sam Mendes gets behind the camera again after the success of 'Skyfall'.
From what it shows, it looks like the plot revolves around the aftermath of its predecessor, with Bond dealing not only with the death of Judi Dench's M, but also with aspects of his past that might have been revealed after the discovery of his childhood home.
Filming for the movie was briefly halted in February after Craig sprained his knee during a fight sequence at Pinewood studios. Luckily, the 47-year-old actor manages to recover quickly and production resumed the next day, keeping the schedule as planned. Shortly after, the team moved to Italy to film the required scenes in Rome. Residents of the city had previously complained to their mayor regarding the state of the streets where the British crew was supposed to be filming, as they considered the city hall had not taken care of them and they looked abandoned, which would be bad publicity for the city of Rome and would make it look dirty and worn down in the film.
'Spectre' will be released in the UK by the end of October, and it will be on cinemas worldwide in November. It has already been reported that the ending of this instalment will set up for the following movie, which would be the 25th in the saga. Daniel Craig has already signed to reprise his role as the most famous British spy. #Celebrities
