New Bond 25 Footage Shows Daniel Craig Driving Aston Martin V8 In London
The first footage from the upcoming James Bond movie was recently published online, and now, even more footage of Bond 25 has emerged from London. Released June 30 by the official James Bond Twitter account, a video shows Daniel Craig driving the lovely Aston Martin V8 through London's Whitehall road. The Aston Martin V8 was first seen in a James Bond movie all the way back in 1987 with Timothy Dalton's The Living Daylights.
Another piece of media released by the producers shows a suave-looking, sunglasses-wearing Craig strolling through London. The producers noted that Craig, director Cary Fukunaga (True Detective), and the crew filmed in various London locations on June 30.

This appears to be one of the first instances of Bond 25 filming after Craig injured his ankle so badly he needed surgery and later, time off, to recover. These new images and video follow the first footage released that shows Bond in Jamaica.
Oscar winner Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) was initially tapped to direct Bond 25, but he dropped out due to "creative differences." Cary Fukunaga replaced Boyle before the film was delayed first from October 2019 to February 2020 and then again to April 3, 2020.
In addition to Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, and Lea Seydoux will all reprise their roles for the 25th James Bond movie. Jeffrey Wright and Ben Whishaw also return, while Rami Malek has joined the movie as the villain.
Bond 25's story begins with Bond out of active service and enjoying himself in Jamaica. Of course this tranquility does not last.
"His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help," reads a line from the description. "The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology."
In June, a controlled explosion on-set went wrong, and one person was injured.
