Quantum Of Solace…whatever that means

Here’s the trailer for the new James Bond movie, Quantum Of Solace. Daniel Craig returns as the badass yet emotionally unstable version of this iconic British superspy. Click here for the HD version of the trailer or watch the YouTube version below:

“Quantum of Solace” continues the high octane adventures of James Bond (Daniel Craig) in “Casino Royale.”Betrayed by Vesper, the woman he loved, 007 fights the urge to make his latest mission personal. Pursuing his determination to uncover the truth, Bond and M (Judi Dench) interrogate Mr White (Jesper Christensen) who reveals the organisation which blackmailed Vesper is far more complex and dangerous than anyone had imagined.

Forensic intelligence links an Mi6 traitor to a bank account in Haiti where a case of mistaken identity introduces Bond to the beautiful but feisty Camille (Olga Kurylenko), a woman who has her own vendetta. Camille leads Bond straight to Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric), a ruthless business man and major force within the mysterious organisation.On a mission that leads him to Austria, Italy and South America, Bond discovers that Greene, conspiring to take total control of one of the world’s most important natural resources, is forging a deal with the exiled General Medrano (Joaquin Cosio). Using his associates in the organisation, and manipulating his powerful contacts within the CIA and the British government, Greene promises to overthrow the existing regime in a Latin American country, giving the General control of the country in exchange for a seemingly barren piece of land.

In a minefield of treachery, murder and deceit, Bond allies with old friends in a battle to uncover the truth. As he gets closer to finding the man responsible for the betrayal of Vesper, 007 must keep one step ahead of the CIA, the terrorists and even M, to unravel Greene’s sinister plan and stop his organisation.

I’m not much of a James Bond fan but I’ve seen some of them (probably all of the Pierce Brosnan movies, You Only Live Twice (Sean Connery), From Russia With Love (Sean Connery) and the guilty pleasure LMAO Moonraker with Roger Moore). But Casino Royale was the only movie that I liked not just as a ‘ James Bond movie’ but as an action movie in general (check our review of Casino Royale). So I can’t wait for this installment.

Release Date: Nov 7 2008

PS: WTF does Quantum of Solace mean? ‘Solace’ means comfort so ‘quantum of solace’ would mean a large quantity of comfort. Here’s what producer Michael G.Wilson has to say

I think it’s very appropriate for this film because based on what happened to the character of James Bond in the last film, Casino Royale, he needs a quantum of solace, considering his mental state
