AceShowbiz - After being plagued with several production issues, "Bond 25" is trying to counter it by releasing a sneak peek that is expected to bring back the hype for the upcoming movie. MGM has released a brand new behind-the-scenes video that takes fans to the set in Jamaica.
The video teases an explosion and some action scenes, including the one which sees Daniel Craig's James Bond creeping outside a room while holding a large gun. He's also seen driving a car on street and hitting a local nightclub. Some extras are seen dancing at the club, while the video also gives a close-up look at Jeffrey Wright's Felix Leiter and Lashana Lynch's Nomi.
The upcoming James Bond movie, which is being directed by Cary Fukunaga, has been hit with some issues, beginning with Craig's ankle injury. The actor injured his leg while filming in Jamaica in May, forcing a shoot at Pinewood Studios near London to be canceled as he underwent surgery. He has returned to the set last week and the movie remains on track for its scheduled April 2020 release.
Earlier this month, an explosion took place at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, England. A "controlled" blast went awry and created a giant fireball, which set part of the building's roof on fire, leaving one crew member injured. The explosion led to an investigation by Health and Safety Executive (HSE) officials.
Later, director Fukunaga was accused of causing a rift on the set because of his video game hobby. He reportedly pissed off the production staff after arriving three hours on the filming location because of his intense video game session and asked the crew to work extra hours to make up for lost time.
He, however, quickly denied it, stating, "I'd never disrespect the hardest working cast and crew. We're all in this together." Addressing his PlayStation hobby, the 41-year-old filmmaker shared, "As for my PS4 relationship, if my RDR2 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 pissed."
Most recently, a man was arrested for allegedly planting a hidden camera in a women's restroom at Pinewood Studios, near London, where the movie is filmed. Thames Valley detectives have since taken 49-year-old Peter Hartley into custody and charged him with voyeurism.
