New Bond film 'Spectre' shares behind-the-scenes video - watch

Watch footage of a spectacular action sequence being shot in the Austrian mountains

New Bond film Spectre has shared its first behind-the-scenes footage.

The two-minute video shows a potentially spectacular action sequence being shot on location in the Austrian mountains, and includes brief interviews with actors Lea Seydoux and Dave Bautista, plus glimpses of director Sam Mendes and star Daniel Craig. Craig injured his knee shooting a fight scene earlier this month (February) but has since made a full recovery.

Director Mendes started shooting Spectre in December shortly after the title and full cast of the 24th Bond film were announced. Joining Daniel Craig's 007 are double Oscar winner Christoph Waltz in an unspecified role, former Sherlock star Andrew Scott as a member of MI6 called Denbigh, Blue Is The Warmest Colour's Lea Seydoux as a Bond girl named Madeleine Swann, Guardians Of The Galaxy's Dave Bautista as a character called Mr Hinx and Italian actress Monica Bellucci as another female lead, Lucia Sciarra.

In the days leading up to the official announcement, it had been rumoured that Waltz, who won Oscars for his performances in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained, would be playing a classic Bond villain, but this has not been confirmed.

Also returning alongside Daniel Craig are his Skyfall castmates Naomie Harris (Moneypenny), Ben Whishaw (Q), Rory Kinnear (Bill Tanner) and of course Ralph Fiennes (M).

The official plot synopsis for the film teases: "A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. 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." Daniel Craig has since said that the film has a "better script" than Skyfall.

Spectre is set for release in cinemas on November 6 next year.
