A new video blog from the set of 'Spectre' includes footage of a car chase between James Bond and Mr. Hinx

One of the most "iconic" scenes in 'Spectre' has been previewed in a new video blog.

The latest teaser for the latest James Bond movie was released online last night (30.04.15), and it features a car chase through the streets of Rome between the iconic spy - who is played again by Daniel Craig - and Dave Bautista's villain Mr. Hinx.

In the clip, Dave said: "Tonight we have shut down the streets of Rome and we are going to see the hero Mr. Hinx chasing his evil nemesis James Bond.

"It's amazing. It's one of those scenes that's going to be very iconic. Just with the two cars racing through the streets of Rome - I mean, how often do you see that? It's one of those things you only see in a James Bond film."

The short film shows how the Aston Martins used in the film have been tested for stunt purposes and director Sam Mendes spoke of his pride in pitting one of the vehicles against a Jaguar for the chase scene.

He said: "I love the idea of this fantastic car being in a one-on-one battle with another incredible car from Jaguar, which is similarly extraordinary actually. So it's a cat-and-mouse game through the night time streets of Rome, at great speed, between two of the fastest cars in the world."

'Spectre' - which also stars Christoph Waltz, Ralph Fiennes and Monica Bellucci - has been filmed in a number of locations including Rome, Austria and Mexico City.

The film marks Craig's fourth outing as Bond and is scheduled for release in November 2015.

James Bond (Craig) comes up against a global crime syndicate, while back at home, the 00 programme is under threat from reckless moderniser C (Scott). With its swagger, dry humour and frequent, well-executed action it's a solid crowdpleaser, but the story is predictable, the characterisation is thin and overall it lacks…
