Earlier this year, filming on Bond 25 kicked off in Jamaica following the first big cast and plot reveal. Now in a first look called On Set With Bond 25: Jamaica, fans can finally see what Daniel Craig and director Cary Fukunaga have been up to. The stylistic minute long video shows 007 approaching a beach house with his gun cocked, while another scene sees the spy driving a Land Rover Defender, as seen in previous set photos. Presumably, the hut is James Bond’s home with Madeleine Swann.
But just who could be invading Bond in his retirement? Well in another shot set at night we get a look at Lashana Lynch’s Nomi, as the mysterious character appears to have located 007.
Meanwhile, in town, we know Bond comes across Wright’s Felix Leiter, who was last seen in Quantum of Solace.
The CIA agent was absent from Sam Mendes’ Skyfall and Spectre, so this is quite the reunion for the pair.
According to the official plot synopsis, Felix has sought Bond out in retirement, to get help on a new mission.
The official plot summary for Bond 25 reads: “Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica.
“His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help.
“The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.”
The behind-the-scenes video also features scenes of Jamaican nightlife and director Fukunaga at work.
Last week Fukunaga denied claims that he held up filming at Pinewood Studios by playing video games.
Writing on Instagram, he wrote: “There’s not a minute on this job that isn’t scheduled, and even during a shoot day, in the hours before call, between takes and setups, and after we wrap there’s always a line of dedicated and hardworking department heads hungry to prep our next sequences, no one sleeps on this kind of job.”
He added: “So sure it’s hard, but it’s still the best job in the world and I’d never disrespect the hardest working cast and crew. We’re all in this together.
“As for my PS4 relationship, if my RDR2 [Red Dead Redemption 2] progress is any indication, it’s been stunted at 63% for months and if anyone spoils the end for me before I wrap on B25 I’m going to be p****d.”
Bond 25 will be released in UK cinemas on April 3, 2020.
