Rather than using CGI to replace a stuntman's face, as the VFX department did with 'Skyfall', the team working on 'SPECTRE' have gone back to basics.

For the pre-credits action sequence filming in Mexico City, Daniel Craig's stunt double donned a prosthetic mask for the helicopter fight. For the aviation enthusiasts, the chopper used was a Messerschmitt-Bolkow-Blohm Bo105.

According to local reports, fans observing the action in the square could not tell the difference.

It was only when the stuntman was walking among the crowds did they spot the handy work of the make up department.
