So the new, official title of the 22nd Bond picture was revealed to reporters Thursday at a press conference at Pinewood Studios outside of London, where filming on the movie began earlier this month. And the tabbed moniker is… Quantum of Solace? Look, I don’t want to question whether or not the title was drawn blindly from a fan contest, but… was the title drawn blindly from a fan contest? And besides, wasn’t that the title of one of Stephen Hawking’s best-sellers?
Location shooting is planned for Austria, Italy and Panama, and the film — which picks up where 2006’s Casino Royale left off — of course returns Daniel Craig as Bond and Judi Dench as MI-6 boss M. New additions include pouty hottie Olga Kurylenko and
Mathieu Amalric (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly), who will play the
movie’s villain. If my photo posting was working properly, I could include a few pictures from said press conference, but those will have to wait for another day, it seems. Quantum of Solace opens Stateside and in Great Britain on November 7.
