Is it me, or does the Bond titles get less and less relevant with every installment? Okay, so “Casino Royale” kind of make sense, but the previous three or four? Anyhoo. The Powers That Be behind the Bond films have given the latest Bond movie, the 22nd installment, a name: “Quantum of Solace”.
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.”
“We thought it was an intriguing title and referenced what happened to Bond and what is happening in the film,” he said.
Daniel Craig returns as James Bond in “Quantum of Solace”. Judi Dench returns as his MI-6 boss M, and Mathieu Amalric (“The Diving Bell and the Butterfly”) steps into the role of the heavy. Ukrainian actress Olga Kurylenko is the new Bond girl, playing the mysterious Camille.
