Their food may leave a lot to be desired, but the Brits sure get a lot of very nifty movie posters. While we get those familiar looking one-sheets, the folks in the UK are treated to “quads”, twice as big movie posters with plenty of room for images and the title. The latest is a quad poster for the upcoming James Bond flick, “Quantum of Solace”, showing Bond slowly inching his way toward his prey, machine gun at the ready. You know, that machine gun must not weigh that much; either that, or Bond has been pumping iron.
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 interrogate Mr. White who reveals the organization which blackmailed Vesper is far more complex and dangerous than anyone had imagined.
Daniel Craig, as the latest James Bond, cracks skulls and ventilates some people with his big bad machinegun November 7. Marc Foster (“Monster’s Ball”) directs. As you can see from the poster, the Brits get Bond a week before we do.
