Learn what lies in store for the 'SPECTRE' pre-credits sequence shot on location in Mexico City (spoilers)

This article contains potential spoilers.
Italian actor Alessandro Cremona plays Marco Sciarra, the protagonist of the 'SPECTRE' pre-credits sequence, filmed on location with Daniel Craig this week.
As these location photos from Tuesday 24th March reveal, Bond and Sciarra face-off in the streets of Mexico City during the Day of the Dead festival. Other shots captured on location included a large explosion, a shoot out and a collapsing building.
Last week's video showed Alessandro Cremona in a white suit during the parade scenes.
Earlier filming in Rome showed Monica Bellucci, who plays Lucia Sciarra, attending her husband's funeral. It is probably safe to assume that Marco Sciarra will not survive the high-octane opening sequence.
Mexican actress Stephanie Sigman, who only appears in the pre-credits action, will be Bond's accomplice in the field.
