The team behind the upcoming 007 film, dubbed Bond 25, released an unconventional first look in the form of behind-the-scenes footage and peeks from the movie. Set to take place all over the world, per usual, star Daniel Craig's Bond-swan-song definitely looks to be a colorful flick.
It hasn't been an easy road to this point.
Craig sustained an injury in May that delayed filming; a controlled explosion went wrong on set, resulting in the minor injury of a crew member; and then there's the disturbing camera hidden in the women's bathroom???
But the project has persevered — take a look:
Watch the official reveal of 'Bond 25'
Directed by Cary Fukunaga, who brought us that epic 6-minute single-take tracking shot of the raid in True Detective, the film is set to take place in London, Italy, Jamaica, and more as he faces off against Rami Malek reportedly playing the primary villain.

The reveal includes Fukunaga in action, Craig looking cool-as-always, Westworld's Jeffrey Wright as "Felix Leiter" ("a brother from Langley"), and Captain Marvel's Lashana Lynch as "Nomi" on location in the Caribbean.
But not just anywhere in the Caribbean. They went straight to Goldeneye and 007 author Ian Fleming's Jamaican villa:

One of the most interesting and exciting additions to the project is writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge, creator of Killing Eve and Fleabag — projects praised for their levity, humor, and surprising character moments.
Waller-Bridge will join Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, and Scott Z. Burns.
The official James Bond Twitter account is killing it when it comes to sharing Bond history, stories, and progress, including behind-the-scenes looks like this:
