New images from the set of “Spectre,” the next James Bond film, show Dave Bautista in character as henchman Mr. Hinx.

Bautista, one of the breakout stars of “Guardians of the Galaxy,” joins the ranks of notorious Bond villains like Jaws (Richard Kiel), Oddjob (Harold Sakata), and Xenia Onatopp (Famke Janssen).

Sam Mendes is returning to direct “Spectre” after his success with “Skyfall” in 2012. Daniel Craig is reprising his role as the British super spy, along with a supporting cast that includes Bautista, Christoph Waltz, Monica Belluci, and Ralph Fiennes.

“Spectre” follows Bond deciphering a cryptic message to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.

Bond fans will remember that SPECTRE (Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion) was a major force in the early entries in the series, with Sean Connery battling the group in films like “Dr. No” and “Thunderball.”

Empire Magazine first released the images. “Spectre” opens in theaters November 6.
