While our last glimpse of filming gave us an icy chill, new cast images of Spectre–the 24th entry in EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Sony Pictures Entertainment’s James Bond franchise–warm things up with smiles all around. Check out stars Daniel Craig, Léa Seydoux and Dave Bautista by the Austrian alps in our gallery below!
The shots were taken in Sölden, a major Austrian tourist attraction known for its skiing, especially the prized Rettenbach glacier. According to area’s official site, the Spectre production is expected to film in Sölden through February, utilizing a cable car as well as the glacier road and tunnel.
In the movie, 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.
SPECTRE (Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion), as Bond fans know, is a fictional global terrorist organization featured in Ian Fleming’s novels, as well as the films and video games based on those novels. The organization was led by the villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld, although the cast is definitely playing it coy about whether or not Blofeld will actually appear in the new film.
Directed by the Academy Award-winning Sam Mendes (Skyfall), Spectre stars Daniel Craig, Ben Wishaw, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Christoph Waltz, Monica Bellucci, David Bautista, Léa Seydoux, Andrew Scott and Rory Kinnear. Written by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade, the movie hits theaters on November 6, 2015.
