So, the name for "Bond 22" has been revealed!

IVER HEATH, England (AFP) — "Quantum of Solace" was unveiled Thursday as the title of the next James Bond film at the launch of the superspy's latest adventure.

The name for the movie, directed by Marc Forster, and until now provisionally titled "Bond 22", was revealed at Pinewood Studios, west of London, where filming is already underway.

"Quantum of Solace" was the name of a short story in Bond creator Ian Fleming's 1960 anthology "For Your Eyes Only".

Daniel Craig is reprising his role as 007, following his 2006 debut in "Casino Royale".

The new movie will also star Ukrainian model and actress Olga Kurylenko as the new Bond girl, with French actor Mathieu Amalric -- currently starring in "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly" -- cast as the main villian.

"Quantum of Solace" is set to be released later this year.

Interesting name, no doubt. I can't wait for the movie, though. :D

And the new bond girls! (http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20169700,00.html)

That short story wasn't even about Bond, he was only in the framing. And the name is kind of crap imho.

I think its alright, kinda cool I guess. Glad that its a Fleming name at least. Though I haven't read any of the books so I hope the movie is different than what you said the book was like Bill.

Wierd name, doesn't sound very Bond like to me but oh well, who cares so long as the film is good. Casino Royale was a great film and Craig makes an awesome Bond. I'm really looking forward to this.

The name is kind of "meh" but more bond with Daniel Craig = win IMO :D

Also, Pheonix, watch Casino Royale or I'll hurt you :|

Casino Royale and Diamonds are Forever are the only James Bond movies I've seen, but Casino Royale was incredible.

Diamonds are Forever is kind a poor one to judge based on. Try watching From Russia With Love, Goldfinger. The Spy Who Loved Me, or Goldeneye.

It may have come from Ian Fleming, but this name just doesn't seem to sit very well with the names of the other movies. It doesn't immediately grab you by the throat and scream 'Bond Movie!' in your face, imo.

Nevertheless, I have hopes the next outing will be a good blast. I liked Casino Royale - it was time for something a bit fresher and more grounded in the real world, and Daniel Craig did a good job in the lead role.

Looks pretty frickin' good. I'm stoked. :D

I find myself constantly singing the praises of Casino Royale to my family and friends. I think that film really brought Bond back to basics, and gave him an edge we hadn't seen in a long time. And Daniel Craig added a deep intensity to Bond that really sold me on him. As a result of all that, for once Bond became unpredictable, suspensful, and gripping.

So, watching this trailer and knowing it's picking up right where Casino Royale left off... EXACTLY where it left off, I got pretty damn excited, and I'm fairly certain this excitement level isn't going anywhere but up until November gets here.

There is a Quantum of Solace in my pants.


Seriously, I liked Casino Royale, but not sure yet how I feel about Daniel Craig. Sure he's athletic and British, but he's missing some of that smart ass element that made James Bond so damn cool over the years. I know this is supposed to be the "gritty bond", but I miss the wise humor....a lot.

Grooves, the man had his balls smashed, and was still being a wise ass.

I still need to buy Casino Royale on DVD.

my only problem with Daniel Craig is he doesn't look the part. but that didn't stop me enjoying casino royale. i thought it was very good and like stormy said, more grounded in the real world... no invisable cars of any other silly gadgets... that would probably have flemming spinning in his grave.

the trailer for QoS looks good.
it's an interesting title... the short story is just about a governor telling Bond about this man and woman and the breakdown of their marriage. However the phrase has relevance because quantum of solace is the breaking point, when humanity goes out the window. Which is what this film is all about by the looks of the trailer.

No, he doesn't exactly look like a bond. But I think that's what made me like it so much.

It's looking good, I can't tell much with just that trailer, but seems okay. However, is it just me that has this feeling that they're Bourne-izing Bond?

Looks like Craig's abs are still sexy as hell.

Hm, after the last one, I'm uneasy about this at best.

Yeah and that was a noble effort but let me explain something to you:

Pussy Galore: "My name is Pussy Galore"

Bond: "I must be dreaming."

That was Sean Connery. It's too hard to pass up Connery. Though in my opinion, Pierce Brosnan did a FAR better job than Timothy Dalton OR Roger Moore in my opinion. He retired when it was right. Yet I am not convinced that Daniel Craig is right for the part just yet. Hopefully this movie will show some character development.

In my opinion Pierce Brosnan was one of the BEST Bonds yet.
Sure I like Daniel Craig, but he's a whole new type of Bond. This new movie seems to be kinda cool but I don't know... AGAIN the whole "let's chase Bond cuz he's taking things on his own" get's kinda old...
I guess I'll just have to wait and see...
