Production on the highly-anticipated 24th Bond movie, Spectre, geared up late last year following a special Sony press conference. After the world went berserk over the news (well, everyone loves Bond, don’t they?), the cameras began to roll in London. Now, courtesy of the official James Bond Twitter, we’ve a new glimpse at another chilly location the world’s favourite secret agent is heading to. It’s not clear where the shoot has moved to, but we do know the film will be lensing in London, Rome, Mexico City, Tangier, Sölden and Obertilliach.

This latest snap – of a clapperboard marking a return to the shoot – now joins the few set photos and leaked videos which have appeared online. So far we’ve been offered a few cheeky glimpses at Bond in action. A video of Daniel Craig as the rugged agent in a boat alongside MI6 worker Rory Kinnear made its way onto the web during the height of the Sony hack scandal. However, the best image, which Sony dropped five days after the film’s announcement provided a key clue to the film’s origins – a simple shot of the bulldog M gifted to Bond at the end of Skyfall.
For fans of the franchise, Spectre is a well-known terrorist organization that stands for Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion. Made infamous in Ian Fleming’s original series of novels, Spectre went on to feature in the spin-off video games but is most well known for housing legendary Bond villain Ernst Blofeld.
Also starring Ben Wishaw, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Christoph Waltz, Monica Bellucci, David Bautista, Léa Seydoux and Andrew Scott, Spectre will be careening into theaters on November 6th, 2015.
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.
