Here’s the First Picture From the Set of the New James Bond Film

M lives on

The new James Bond film, Spectre, began shooting on Monday, and the official 007 Twitter account has already posted its first picture from the set:

It doesn’t tell fans much, but the picture does feature the ceramic bulldog that belonged to Judi Dench’s M and was blown up (along with M’s office) by Silva (Javier Bardem) in Skyfall. M left the glued-back-together bulldog to Daniel Craig’s Bond in her will.

But even if it’s a small trinket, the bulldog promises an action-packed film. At the end of Skyfall, Moneypenny suggests to Bond, “Maybe it was her way of telling you to take a desk job?” Bond answers: “Just the opposite.”
