To be honest with you, the Bond villains are getting so damn normal nowadays that it’s hard to really get into the whole “meglomaniacal villain out to rule the world” shtick. Whatever happened to the days of bald dude with white cat, guy with golden gun, and humongous freaks with metal teeth? Nowadays, the bad guys are poker players, short Irish gangsters, bespectacled TV couch potatoes, and now, beady-eyed French dudes. Seriously, James Bond’s class of villains have definitely taken a major dip. But hey, I guess it’s more “realistic”, because, what’s more realistic than a secret agent who can dodge bullets, take on a gazillion guys at once, sleep with every women he runs across, and manages to keep his tuxedo looking spiffy through it all?
But I digress. New trailer below.
Quantum of Solace continues the high octane adventures of James Bond in Casino Royale. 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 organisation which blackmailed Vesper is far more complex and dangerous than anyone had imagined.
Starring Daniel Craig, Mathieu Amalric, Judi Dench, Olga Kurylenko, Gemma Arterton, Jeffrey Wright, Stana Katic, and Giancarlo Giannini. Marc Foster (”Monster’s Ball”) directs.
The solace hits back November 14.
