The official James Bond 007 Facebook page posted a photo from the first day of filming the upcoming "Bond" movie "Spectre." It's not just another snapshot; the image teases something significant from 2012's "Skyfall," the previous "Bond" film. Check out the photo below.

ComingSoon.net pointed out that the miniature bulldog toy in the photo was featured during the last moments of "Skyfall." According to the report, Dame Judi Dench's character M "willed the bulldog statue to Daniel Craig's 007, with Naomie Harris' Eve Moneypenny remarking, 'Maybe it was her way of telling you to take a desk job?' to which Bond replied, 'Just the opposite'."

The bulldog may be a symbol of M and Bond's relationship; and as Collider said, it is "a way for her [M] to convey to him that he can survive it all, just like the dog did."

Dench's M was killed off moments before the end of the Daniel Craig starrer "Skyfall." The 80-year-old actress portrayed the MI6 chief in seven "James Bond" films, Gloucestershire Echo reports.

'Spectre' Release Date and Cast News

News about the upcoming 24th "James Bond" film was announced in the 007 Stage at London's Pinewood Studios, which is the British studio home of the Bond franchise, according to The Hollywood Reporter. New cast members were also announced, including Christoph Waltz, Lea Seydoux, Dave Bautista, Andrew Scott, and Monica Bellucci, with Craig back to reprise his role as the iconic character James Bond or agent 007.

Waltz will play Oberhauser, a character who coincidentally shares the same surname with Bond's former ski instructor and second father Hannes Oberhauser. Scott, known for portraying Moriarty role in the BBC series "Sherlock," will play as MI5 employee Denbigh, The Hollywood Reporter notes. Monica Bellucci and Lea Seydoux are the new Bond girls, portraying the roles of Lucia Sciarra and Madeleine Swann, respectively.

WWE star Bautista will play "a henchman called Mr. Hinx," E! Online reports. Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Rory Kinnear, and Ben Whishaw are also included, reprising their roles introduced in "Skyfall."

According to E! Online, "Spectre" is an acronym for Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge, and Extortion, a fictional terrorist organization led by Bond's arch-nemesis and international syndicate Ernst Stavro Blofeld.

"Spectre" will once again be directed by "Skyfall" director Sam Mendes, with the screenplay written by John Logan, Neal Purvis, and Robert Wade, ComingSoon.net noted. It is set to film in various international locations including the Austrian Alps, London, Rome, Mexico City, and Morocco.

"Spectre" will be out in cinemas on November 6, 2015.
