The first official look at SPECTRE has been revealed today in an all new Behind the scenes featurette by the official 007 twitter.! The featurette features Director Sam Mendes discussing the film. It also shows behind the scenes footage of the actors, most notably Daniel Craig as 007, although M, Moneypenny and Q are also featured prominently in the footage. The footage showcases some of the filming in Rome, especially action scenes involving a shootout and a car chase.

In addition, Empire Magazine has recently posted two new preview images from SPECTRE as part of its article for this month. The images are highly intriguing as they tease two characters that are integral to the story of SPECTRE. First up is a picture of the menacing henchman 'Mr. Hinx' as played by Dave Bautista.
Next, is the Bond girl Dr. Madeleine Swann, played by Lea Seydoux.
Empire teased both of these characters in a most intriguing way as paraphrased below. Mr. Hinx was described shortly:
""When I came over to meet Sam [Mendes], I only asked two questions," says the erstwhile Galaxy Guardian. "I asked him if Mr. Hinx was a badass. He said, 'Yes, he's a badass.' I said, 'Well, is Mr. Hinx intelligent?' He said, 'Very.' That's what I like about Mr. Hinx. He's very well-dressed and very well-mannered. I'm not just here to fight people. He has a sense of humour. He definitely knows what a metaphor is."
In addition, Madeleine Swann was described similarly intriguingly.
"Also on the on the intellectual side of things, Dr. Madeleine Swann is brainier than your average Bond girl. "I don't consider myself a Bond girl," says Seydoux. "I think I'm not really the stereotyped Bond girl. I feel quite different. You can't be like, 'Oh, James.' You have to find something else. She's not a fighter, she's a doctor," she adds. "She fights in another way."
