It may not be out until next year, but Universal Pictures has whet our appetite for Bond 25 with an exciting behind-the-scenes video to give fans a glimpse at how the film’s being made.
The footage sees director Cary Joji Fukunaga working with James Bond himself, Daniel Craig, as they shoot in Jamaica.
Eagle-eyed viewers will also spot first looks at Westworld star Jeffrey Wright’s CIA operative Felix Leiter and Captain Marvel actor Lashana Lynch as new character Nomi.
Here’s the official synopsis of the movie, revealed back in April during a live-streamed event in Jamaica:
Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
In addition to Craig, Lynch and Wright, Ralph Fiennes (M), Naomie Harris (Moneypenny), Ben Whishaw (Q), Rory Kinnear (Bill Tanner), and Lea Seydoux (Dr. Madeleine Swann) will all be returning for this sequel. Rami Malek has signed on to play the villain
