‘There’s no point in going into a movie like this without making an effort to make it different. To make it a seperate entity than the previous one.’ - Daniel Craig

Quantum of Solace

Only two more weeks before the worldwide release of the 22nd James Bond film: Quantum of Solace. The sequel to the 2006 film Casino Royale, it is directed by Marc Forster, and features Daniel Craig's second performance as James Bond.

In the film, Bond battles Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric), a member of the Quantum organisation posing as an environmentalist, who intends to stage a coup d'état in Bolivia to take control of its water supply. Bond seeks revenge for the death of Vesper Lynd, and is assisted by Camille (Olga Kurylenko), who also wants to kill Greene.

The title was chosen from a 1960 short story in Ian Fleming's For Your Eyes Only, though the film is not expected to contain any elements of the original story. Location filming took place in Panama, Chile, Italy (Sienna!) and Austria, while the sets were built at Pinewood Studios.
PS And what a great Bond track by Alicia Keys and Jack White.
