Despite his injury, Daniel Craig is back as James Bond, and the shoot for the 25th James Bond film, the still-untitled “Bond 25,” seems to be moving along quite nicely.

The official 007 YouTube channel released a behind the scenes reel of the first look at the film on Tuesday, specifically the production’s footage shot in Jamaica. It’s a party vibe with a jammin’ beat but also shows some stylized looks at Craig as Bond slowly stalking outside a window with a gun.

Also seen in the footage are director Cary Joji Fukunaga, the franchise’s first American director, along with Jeffrey Wright as Felix Leiter and franchise newcomer Lashana Lynch as Nomi.

Craig injured his ankle on set in Jamaica last month, forcing him to get minor surgery and preventing him from shooting, though the film remained on track for its April 2020 release date. The 007 Twitter account even teased Craig working out in a leg cast and rehabilitating while at Pinewood Studios as he prepped for the shoot.

Earlier in the month, a controlled explosion caused damage to the 007 set and injured a crew member just off stage, though no injuries were reported on set.

“Bond 25” stars Craig alongside Wright and Lynch, as well as with Oscar-winner Rami Malek as the film’s villain. Craig will also be joined by past co-stars Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Rory Kinnear Ben Whishaw, and Lea Seydoux.

“Bond 25” is to be Craig’s fifth and final James Bond movie, and the film hits theaters on April 8, 2020.
