Bond is back — almost.

Sony Pictures has unveiled the first footage from the upcoming Bond movie, “Spectre,” which stars Daniel Craig as James Bond for the fourth time.

The movie was partially filmed in Austria, and in the footage released, Craig is shown in a fight scene with the snow-covered mountains in the background. The video also shows a behind-the-scenes look at what a producer calls “one of the major action sequences of the movie.”

So what can fans expect to see unfold in this latest addition to the popular franchise? “A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation,” Sony Pictures wrote in a release about the movie. Ralph Fiennes is set to replace Judi Dench as M, and Christoph Waltz is the villan, Oberhauser.
