As filming wraps in Austria, the crew behind SPECTRE travelled to Rome, Italy where they have shot some interesting action scenes.
Upon their arrival, Daniel Craig and Monica Bellucci were greeted with a photocall. On Thursday, the crew were spotted shooting a funeral scene with the two actors. The location is a museum near Museo Della Civilta Romana which has been closed down due to redevelopment work. The museum was decorated with tombstones and a mausoleum to convert it into a cemetery for the movie.
Eagle-eyed viewers will notice that the coffin has been placed on a shelf in a column where all the surnames on the tombstones begin with the letter 'M'. The only confirmed characters with 'M' as a surname are 'Mallory' and 'Moneypenny'; though it is probably unlikely to be them being laid to rest.
The following day, the stunt team were hard at work shooting the epic vehicle chase featuring James Bond's Aston Martin DB10 and the Jaguar C-X75 driven by Mr Hinx.
The stunt work took place along the banks of the River Tiber, with rehearsals taking place by the Ponte Sisto bridge. Onlookers took some video clips of the stunt rehearsals being performed.
On Saturday, Sam Mendes and Hoyte Van Hoytema were on set by the Via di San Gregorio with the Aston Martin DB10 as it was seen speeding through the streets driven by Daniel Craig. The scene is assumed to be set before the funeral which was filmed earlier in the week.
