Images of Daniel Craig on the Obertilliach set of the new James Bond film, Spectre, have been released in the run-up to the film’s release later this month.

Excitement is building in the media for the launch of Spectre, which goes on global release on Saturday 26 October. The new film features scenes from the slopes in Obertilliach and Sölden in Austria’s Tirol, both of which are gearing up for a surge in interest over the coming ski season.

Filming began in January on Spectre, reportedly the most expensive spy film ever made, at a cost of more than £200million. Part of that went on knee surgery for Daniel Craig in April, for an injury he sustained on the ski slopes.

James Bond is no stranger to the ski slopes, with George Lazenby first taking part in wintery action in the 1969 film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, then Roger Moore sported a fetching banana yellow ski outfit in the 1997 film The Spy Who Loved Me, filmed in Canada, then A View to a Kill. Cortina D’Ampezzo hit the screens in the 1981 Bond film, For Your Eyes Only, then Roger Dalton went sledging in Bratislava, Slovenia for Living Daylights. Finally, it was Pierce Brosnan’s turn on the slopes for The World is not Enough (1999) and Die Another Day in 2002.

How much skiing is featured in Spectre remains a secret, but we know there’s some car action on the mountain roads and that the filming extends to Sölden’s stunning ice Q restaurant. We can’t wait!
