This is the first actual footage and first official picture of the new Daniel Craig James Bond movie Spectre. It is one of the movie’s major action sequences of the movie.
Last month we reported on the press conference in Sölden – Austria for the start of filming of the Spectre. Actress Léa Seydoux aka Madeleine Swann said on the day, “I am quite nervous but I am really excited and looking forward to starting the film.”
Actor Dave Bautista, Guardians of the Galaxy star, aka Mr Hinx in Spectre, said the setting was “It is very surreal, it looks like a painting, especially for me.” He explained his reaction, “I’m from the inner city, it’s my first time ever up a mountain!”
Associate Producer, Gregg Wilson “Above all we have to deliver an amazing sequence” as “this is going to be one of the major action sequences of the movie”. He remarked it needs to be “a jewel in the crown so to speak”, so “it is going to be spectacular. He said of the location “Austria seemed to offer everything we needed to pull it off”.
Production Designer Dennis Gassner said “It was a long journey for me through many countries to try and find this. And we found a very unique, modern facility that we were looking for.”
On the top of the mountain there is a new glass building, although not confirmed, could this be the base for Spectre?
“I think that we are going to continue the history of the Bond films, making things that are exciting for the audience to look at,” Dennis said. “What could be more exciting than to be on top of the world?”
The production manager, Martin Joy said they had “all the difficulties of filming somewhere that is so cut off with [different] weather possibilities and altitude. It is a real challenge up here but the pay off is stunning scenery”
In the video of the Austrian filming you’re see behind the scenes, and what looks like some actual footage to be in the movie, of a car chase in the snow and James Bond grabbing a man from behind and shooting another one!
Production of Spectre has now moved on and we bring you more as we get it.
