A behind-the-scenes video was also released showing the scale of the action scene being shot in the Austrian Alps. Film's associate producer Craig Wilson said they were filming one of the major action sequences in Austria which will be 'a jewel in the crown, so to speak' for the Sam Mendes-directed 24th Bond movie.
The cast of the upcoming project also includes returning 'Skyfall' stars Naomi Harris (Eve Moneypenny), Ben Whishaw (Q) and Ralph Fiennes (M), as well as Bond newcomers Christoph Waltz, Lea Seydoux, Dave Bautista, Andrew Scott and Monica Bellucci.
Sam Mendes is returning to direct the film after 'Skyfall'. He has teamed up with 'Skyfall' writers John Logan, Neil Purvis and Rob Wade also returning.
The film, which began shooting in December in London, is slated to hit theatres on November 6. Craig, 46, had sprained his knee while shooting the movie at the Pinewood studio last week but he returned on the sets on Saturday.
