James Bond: Quantum of Solace (a.k.a. Bond 21)

Tools    





I meant on my list which clearly shows 21, therefore one must be unofficial since apparently there's only 20. One that isn't Never Say Never Again or the original Casino Royale since neither of those are on my list.

I though Quantum of Solace is the name for Bond 22

Producers have revealed some of the secrets about the latest James Bond film, due for release later this year, including the inner turmoil that drives its suave superagent hero and its title: "Quantum of Solace."
As titles go, it's not as mellifluous as "From Russia With Love" or "Goldfinger." But Daniel Craig, returning as Bond after 2006's "Casino Royale," says he likes it.
"It has grown on me," Craig told reporters on the film's set at Pinewood Studios near London on Thursday. "It doesn't trip off the tongue. But why should it?"
Producer Michael G. Wilson said the title, chosen only a few days ago, was taken from a story by Bond creator Ian Fleming that appears in the collection "For Your Eyes Only."
Craig said Fleming defined a quantum of solace — it means, roughly, a measure of comfort — as "that spark of niceness in a relationship that if you don't have, you might as well give up."
Filming began earlier this month at Pinewood, the franchise's home since the 1960s. It's a direct sequel to 2006's "Casino Royale," beginning an hour after that film ends, with Bond devastated by his betrayal by true love Vesper Lynd.
"He had his heart broken at the end of the last movie and that certainly is a spur for him in this one," Craig said.
"I'd be lying if I said there wasn't revenge in his heart. But it's more than that. That spurs him on, but that's not what the movie is. It's not a revenge movie. It's about him figuring a few things out."
Producer Barbara Broccoli said the film, directed by Marc Forster ("Monster's Ball," "The Kite Runner"), mixes Bond's "inner turmoil" with action — and of course gadgets — as he tries to stop a shadowy cabal trying to bring down the world economy.
Craig's second Bond adventure continues in the gritty vein of "Casino Royale," in which a rough-edged 007, newly granted his "license to kill," bled, sweat and felt real emotion. But Wilson promised it also has "twice as much action" as its predecessor.
"It's pretty jam-packed," he said.
Filming began at Pinewood three weeks ago. Location shooting will take place in Italy, Austria, Panama, Chile and Peru.
Mathieu Amalric is a new addition as villain Dominic Greene. But the French actor, star of the Oscar-nominated "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly," won't be sporting a trademark tic like many of his predecessors.
He and Forster decided his villainy should come from within.
"That's maybe what is horrible about today," Amalric said. "We can't guess who the villains are. The villains are invisible."
Amalric said he modeled his character to some extent on former Prime Minister Tony Blair and French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

"I've been taking details, the smile of Tony Blair, the craziness of Sarkozy, he's the worst villain we've ever had," he said.
Bond may find solace — producers are coy — in the arms of two Bond Girls — Ukrainian Olga Kurylenko as a feisty Bolivian named Camille and Gemma Arterton as an MI6 agent named Fields.
"In the movie, he is obviously still attached to his past," said Kurylenko. "The appearance of this new girl might divert him. Or, it might not."
Craig, who overcame public skepticism — a blond Bond? — to win rave reviews for "Casino Royale," said he still felt nervous about the role.
"All the fear I felt before is still there," he said. "This is a $200 million movie, and it's James Bond. We have to make it great."

When you look up information on the next Bond film, nobody knows about one of them technically being unofficial, so they will always will be saying Bond 22. Keep in mind Bond 21.



In the Beginning...
At this point, I'm going to say the poster is legit. If it was fan-made, the artist would need a promotional photo of Daniel Craig from Casino Royale to even get started, and I can find no matching promotional photo of this kind anywhere. If it did exist, it would be easy to find, of course, because promotional photos are meant to be publicized.

The only other origin of the photo I can think of is if it was some kind of pre-production costume test or lighting photo, but (a) those photos are generally not taken at such high resolution, and (b) photos of that type are almost impossible to acquire by an individual not belonging to the pre-production or production staffs, and are usually retained by the studio.

Besides the photo of Craig, everything else could be easily faked.



You're a Genius all the time

No. It's not really a big deal but how can you say this when you've already been proven wrong on the previous page of this thread? If you discount the lone unofficial film in the series (Never Say Never Again) the new Bond flick will be Bond 22. "They will always be saying Bond 22" because it is Bond 22. Casino Royale was number 21 so, by all logic, that would make Quantum of Solace number 22.

Right?

Is that really the title? Well, I like it. Very creative, indeed.

So which is this elusive third unofficial Bond to make 3 alongside Casino Royale and Never Say Never Again?



It takes place minutes after Casino Royale ends, so does the Quantum of Solace story fit in with that?

The only unofficial Bond movies are Casino Royale (1967) and Never Say Never Again (1983). No third.

Right?
Right



Bright light. Bright light. Uh oh.
None of this seems to help with the math, but I just want to make it clear that On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969) is as official as a Bond flick can get (and it's one of my faves).

Sony Pictures has released the official plot summary for the November 7 release:

"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 old, you're just 12.
I really do not like that title. Maybe it will grow on me, but it just doesn't sound like a James Bond movie title. The movie should be great though, and the actress with the red hair is gorgeous.



"What are we seeing tonight?" "You know, that new movie, Quintum of Sick... Sock... Quink... damn it, let's just stay home and watch Mr. T And The Women. Sounds much less confusing and dumb."
