WATCH: First Look at Daniel Craig as James Bond in “Spectre”

The first footage from the next James Bond installment, "Spectre," has been released and let's just say this movie looks...beautiful, stunning, gorgeous, etc.

Sure, there is going to be some serious action that will make us describe it in a different way, but based on this footage, the scenery is jaw dropping. Craig, Léa Seydoux and Dave Bautista all appear in the behind-the-scenes footage, which takes viewers up to the highest peaks of the snowy Austrian mountains where the actors and crew gather to shoot Spectre.

"The thing that [director] Sam [Mendes] and I talked about was how we're gonna top 'Skyfall,' and so it's gonna be 'Spectre,' and so far it's a good start," production designer Dennis Gassner says.

The scene they are filming, which happens to be one of the major actions scenes of the movie, is also described as "a jewel in the crown, so to speak." Although Seydoux and Bautista participate in interviews for the video, we don't see Craig until the very end. We do, however, get to see him throw some swings and start firing at an unknown assailant.

Craig first played 007 in 2006's "Casino Royale," then in 2008's "Quantum of Solace" and 2012's "Skyfall."

Newcomers include Bautista, Monica Bellucci, Andrew Scott, Seydoux and Christoph Waltz, while Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Rory Kinnear and Ben Whishaw will all return in roles introduced in Skyfall. Belluci and Seydoux will be this installment's Bond girls named Lucia Sciarra and Madeleine Swann, respectively.

"Spectre"—an acronym for Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion—was the name of the international crime syndicate, whose "Number One" was Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Waltz), Bond's former nemesis.
