Updates of Solace Updates of Solace

I’m actually counting down the days till the newest James Bond installment Quantum of Solace opens – that’d be November 7th here in the U.S.

Yes, Casino Royale and Daniel Craig’s Bond were really that great.

Along with cool new pictures, USA Today has some new information regarding said film.

So what’s the mind set of our hero? According to 007 himself – aka Daniel Craig:

He’s damaged and he wants revenge. And that’s another facet of somebody, and it’s not a good emotion to have. You’ve got to see how he deals with it. Last time around, it was just duty and duty alone. This time around, there’s a sense of revenge. That’s how he’s going to screw up. Because he will — but then he gets up and gets it right.”

It’s good to know they’re sticking with the physical and emotional vulnerability of Bond established from Royale.

This is a character whose scared by what he’s seen and lived through during his relatively young life – i.e. he’s around his late-30s to early-40s. One doesn’t become calculating and cold-blooded over night.

Also don’t be surprised if the next Bond outting becomes another “stand-alone plot,” although that’s not written in stone.

Personally, I think Craig’s James Bond films will be closely connected to one another. Plus, he’s supposedly re-upped his contract to five films.

Oh, and the “terrorist organization” that Bond is hunting down; it has a name: Quantum.

Lastly, don’t expect new love interests for Mr. Bond this time around from co-stars Olga Kurylenko and Gemma Arterton.

Straight outta Craig’s mouth:

“He has one relationship in this movie, a kind of fling. It’s mutually beneficial.”

I like what I’m hearing so far. Then again, I am biased.

As my buddy Phil Gee accurately put it, “Please don’t suck, please don’t suck, please don’t suck…”
