Look Who's Back In This Pic From The New James Bond Movie

The whole office goes up in smoke, and that bloody thing survives.

Filming has commenced on "Spectre," the newest film in the James Bond series, and the filmmakers are already teasing us with tantalizing glimpses from the set. Well, one tantalizing glimpse, anyway. A pic posted to the 007 Twitter account shows that a certain somebody from the last movie, "Skyfall," will be appearing in this one, too.

If your memory needs a jog: That's the bulldog figurine that graced the desk of the enigmatic M (may she rest in peace) at Mi6 headquarters. It's a fair guess that the trinket was passed on to the new M, played by Ralph Fiennes, after the events of "Skyfall." It's unclear whether Mister Bulldog will play a pivotal role in this film, but if its previous track record is any indication, it could outlive every last character in the franchise before all is said and done.
