The first teaser trailer for the new James Bond film was released on Friday, and now Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios have shared some stills from the set.
In one image we see Monica Bellucci pulling a sombre expression as Lucia Sciarra, the widow of an assassin killed by 007, while wearing a black hat and veil as a clapperboard readies the set for the take.
Another gives a shadowy look of Christoph Waltz's villain Franz Oberhauser.

Waltz's face is obscured by the dark, but he sits at a conference table with two flunkies on either side. Bond fan's enjoyed their first taste of Oberhauser in the teaser trailer.
Artfully framed, the 96 second taste of what to expect from the forthcoming film finds a brooding Bond reliving his past after a mysterious box of personal effects is uncovered following the events of Operation Skyfall.
'You've got a secret,' Naomi Harris' Moneypenny correctly surmises. 'Something you can't tell anyone... because you don't trust anyone.'

Expectation has been steadily building since plans to shoot SPECTRE, the 24th film in the iconic, Broccoli produced franchise, were set in motion – and not without reason.
Buoyed by the unprecedented commercial success of predecessor Skyfall – that film grossed $1,108.6 million worldwide in box office receipts – Daniel Craig has signed up for two more offerings, while director Sam Mendes and talented screenwriter John Logan also make a welcome return.
While subverting Bond mythology by turning the past into a sleek, polished and highly contemporary present, Spectre remains true to the jet setting spirit of the franchise.

The production has so far taken in locations across Austria, where dramatic Alpine scenes were filmed in February, London and, more recently, Mexico City - the setting for a macabre Day of the Dead themed procession.
The carnival-like scenes were reminiscent of the 1973 Bond classic Live And Let Die, which was shot in such locations and New Orleans and Jamaica and featured Mardi Gras-style jazz funerals.
The new movie is sticking close to the tried and tested Bond format, with the official synopsis on IMDB revealing, 'A cryptic message from Bond's past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation.

Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that Mexican actress Stephanie Sigman, 28, had become the latest female addition to Spectre, joining previously announced stars Monica and Lea Seydoux.
The news was announced on the official James Bond Twitter account, where the post read: 'We are pleased to announced that @SigmanStephanie has joined the cast of #Spectre as Estrella.'
Model-turned-actress Sigman will play the mysterious character in the 24th Bond film, with further details being kept under wraps.
Spectre will be released globally on November 6, 2015.
