One of the best ways to prove that production delays and pesky rumors of being hilariously over budget aren’t affecting the filming of a beloved action blockbuster is to release a behind-the-scenes featurette that reveals everything going quite smashingly. As you can see from the above image, the first official shot from SPECTRE, the 24th installment of the James Bond franchise, Daniel Craig and Co. are hitting the slopes in Austria for a little skiing. Is Bond going undercover at a ski academy to help thwart the plans of an evil land developer, bent on tearing down everything at the legendary Intercourse Slope? He wishes.
Instead, as Associate Producer Gregg Wilson explains, this footage takes us inside the filming of a “major action sequence of the movie, a jewel in the crown, so to speak.” Wilson promises that SPECTRE‘s finished product will be “spectacular,” and we simply have to take him at his word. In the meantime, since this was Dave Bautista’s first time on a mountain, how about a web series that features the former WWE champ doing other things for the first time? Swimming with dolphins, eating live insects, starring in a rom com with Kevin Hart and Katherine Heigl – the ideas are endless.
