Filming on Bond 25 is officially underway and producers behind the mega-franchise are keeping fan speculation at bay with the release of an official one-minute teaser clip featuring unseen behind the scenes footage.
Currently shooting in Norway and the UK’s Pinewood Studios, the footage features clips shot from the last month or two in Jamaica, soundtracked by an upbeat dancehall tune and showcasing a number of cast and crew involved in the film.
Director Cary Fukunaga (True Detective) is seen behind the camera, while Jeffrey Wright’s (Boardwalk Empire) CIA Agent Felix Leiter returns alongside Lashana Lynch’s (Captain Marvel) mysterious Nomi. Daniel Craig’s Bond appears in numerous shots; lurking with speargun in hand, driving erratically in a vintage blue Land Rover Defender and enjoying the local nightlife, but there’s no sign yet of the film’s villain, Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody).
The yet-to-be-titled Bond 25 will begin with the now retired Bond living it up in Jamaica. When old friend Felix Leiter interrupts his new found life and persuades him to help rescue a kidnapped scientist, Bond finds himself up against the ultimate villain armed with new and dangerous technology.
The film will also see the return of Ralph Fiennes (Gareth Mallory), Naomi Harris (Miss Moneypenny), Ben Whishaw (Q), and Lea Seydoux (Dr. Madelaine Swann), along with newcomers Ana de Armas (Blade Runner 2049), Billy Magnussen (Game Night), Dali Benssalah and David Dencik (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy).
Bond 25 is set for release on April 8, 2020.
