Quantum of Solace trailer teases fans
Daniel Craig struts his stuff
Bond fans can now enjoy a taster of 007's next cinematic outing - Quantum of Solace - in the form of a trailer down at the film's flashtastic website.
The 22nd movie in the franchise sees Daniel Craig reprise his generally-lauded interpretation of Bond, accompanied by Olga Kurylenko as the "mysterious" Camille and Brit thesp Gemma Arterton as MI6 Agent Fields.
Quantum of Solace focuses on Bond "picking up the pieces after being double-crossed by Treasury agent Vesper Lynd" (in Casino Royale), and pitted against villain Dominic Greene, played by Mathieu Amarilic. He has solid support from old hand Judi Dench as M and Jeffrey Wright as Felix Leiter.
The film is released in the UK on 31 October, and Stateside on 7 November. There's a full international release date listing here. ®
@Ceilidhman Eddie Murphy as Bond? WTF
What have you been smoking/chewing.
1. James Bond is white in the same way as Shaft is black.
2. Eddie Murphy, while very funny (I always watch the beverly hills cop films when they are on) would have an ego larger than Bond (the character) and Bond is bigger than the actor.
3. Daniel Craig does a good job of playing gritty characters and CR was about showing Bond to be more than just a flash git, I wuggest you aso watch the excellent Layer Cake.
4. Brosnan wasn't bad as Bond, he was more believable than Connery and I don't believe for one second that Bond was Scottish.
I for one will be off to see it as soon as it comes out.
El Reg Eds, I dont suppose you can get permission to use the gun barrel imagery as an icon can you? As that would be great
I must be in the minority then. I found the new bond film "Casino Royale" dull as ditchwater. Seem to recall catching a few winks at one point. Far too long and drawn out. Wasn't overly enamoured with Craig - though couldn't give a stuff about hair colour; some people clearly don't have enough to worry about.
Really like Dalton. Thought he brought a dark, nasty edge to the character that seemed more in keeping with a lonely assassin. Okay, the films themselves were a bit "eighties" but what do you expect? They were made in the eighties!
Best Bond since Connery?
Controversially, I thought Timothy Dalton got the violence right. Not much else though.
I think Craig plays the younger, greener Bond quite well. Remember, this is a reboot and retcon so much has been changed, though certain aspects remain the same. Ultimately, the ability of the actor(s) to portray the evolution of Bond and MI6 through the rebooted story arc is what matters the most.
If you don't like the reboot, you don't have to watch them. Whining "joputas"...
