While we still don’t know much about Dave Bautista’s James Bond character, Mr. Hinx, it’s safe to say he’s not one of the good guys. Sony released a new clip from Spectre showing the former WWE fighter trying to crush 007’s skull with his bare hands.
Daniel Craig’s Bond is going to need to dry clean his white dinner jacket after a tango with Mr. Hinx. The footage, released on the official James Bond Facebook page, shows the MI6 agent in an intense fistfight with the brute. While nothing goes over Drax’s head (because his reflexes are too fast), nothing seems to phase Hinx.

“When I came over to meet Sam [Mendes], I only asked two questions,” Bautista told Empire magazine. “I asked him if Mr. Hinx was a badass. He said, ‘Yes, he’s a badass.’ I said, ‘Well, is Mr. Hinx intelligent?’ He said, ‘Very.’ That’s what I like about Mr. Hinx. He’s very well-dressed and very well-mannered. I’m not just here to fight people. He has a sense of humor. He definitely knows what a metaphor is.”
The first press screening for Spectre took place earlier this week in the U.K. to generally positive reviews. A follow-up to Skyfall, the story sees a secretive Bond on a mission of personal importance. This coincides with the emergence of a shadowy organization, SPECTRE, and an equally shadowy figure at its center, Oberhauser.
Craig and Bautista are joined by Christoph Waltz, Lea Seydoux, Monica Bellucci, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, and Andrew Scott. Spectre will hit U.S. theaters on Nov. 6.
