This time: The clapperboard of SPECTRE’s very first scene, taking place at the “Day of the Dead” in Mexico City:
Filming of the opening sequence of SPECTRE is due to get under way in Mexico City. Crowds of extras will be involved in the scenes around Zocalo and Plaza Manuel Tolsa in the historic city centre. Filming is expected to last for around two weeks.
Producer Michael G. Wilson and Mexican actress Stephanie Sigman, who plays Estrella, held a press conference in Mexico City on Wednesday.

Filming of a major car chase in Rome ended in Via Nomentana earlier this week.
It’s been confirmed in a short announcement on 007.com and the official social media accounts that the teaser poster for SPECTRE will be released at some point on Tuesday 17th March. Watch this space.
Another familiar face looks set to return in SPECTRE… Not just James Bond 007, but James Bond the ornithologist whose name inspired Ian Fleming’s creation. The latest clapperboard from filming at Pinewood shows the original Bond’s book “Birds of the West Indies” perched on the side. The book also featured in passing in DIE ANOTHER DAY.
Mexican actress Stephanie Sigman has joined the cast of SPECTRE in the role of Estrella.
It’s thought Sigman will be involved in scenes due to be filmed in Mexico City later in March.
She’s best known for her appearances in TV series The Bridge, and the Oscar-nominated movie Miss Bala.
The latest behind-the-scenes footage from SPECTRE focuses on director Sam Mendes. It also features Daniel Craig as James Bond, Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny and Ben Whishaw as Q.
British film magazine Empire features SPECTRE on the cover of its latest edition, and has a lengthy report including new details from the sets in London and Austria. The article also features new photos of Léa Seydoux as Dr Madeleine Swann and Dave Bautista as henchman Mr Hinx. Both Seydoux and Bautista also give further insights into their respective characters.
