Despite the shroud of secrecy surrounding the next 007 saga, some details have emerged about Skyfall, which features Daniel Craig’s return as Bond.

In the published photos, Bardem—who plays a bad guy named Silva—is dressed as a British cop and wears a blond wig reminiscent in style to the one in the No Country for Old Men, a part that won him the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.

The leading characters of “Skyfall” are in London, where several scenes have been shot in Whitehall, the site of most government offices, the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey.

During a press conference for the film last November, Bardem said that Bond movies bring “good memories” of his youth in Spain and that he was sure the experience was going to be “a lot of fun.”
