SöLDEN, Austria, Feb. 12 (UPI) -- Columbia Pictures has released the first footage of James Bond star Daniel Craig and director Sam Mendes on the set of Spectre, the upcoming 24th installment in the iconic spy franchise.
Shot in Sölden in the Austrian alps, the footage appears to show the cast and crew working on a snowy action sequence, harkening back to The Spy Who Loved Me, The World Is Not Enough, and other Bond adventures both iconic and forgettable.
"It's very surreal, especially for a guy like me.," described co-star Dave Bautista, best known as Drax the Destroyer in Guardians of the Galaxy, of shooting in the Austrian Alps.
"I grew up in the inner city. It's my first time ever on a mountain."
Craig appears only briefly, clad in all black, dispatching an enemy with his fists before shooting at another off screen.
Spectre will be released Nov. 6, 2015.
