How could I. I have not mentioned James Bond, The Quantum Of Solace once on
this site since it’s announcement. You all know that Danie Craig returns to
the role of Bond, you all know that the title comes from a short story of Ian
Flemings. What more do you need.
Well the following pics are just in from the set of Bond 22!
QUANTUM OF SOLACE continues the high octane adventures of James Bond (DANIEL
CRAIG) 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 (JUDI DENCH) interrogate Mr White (JESPER CHRISTENSEN) who reveals the organisation
which blackmailed Vesper is far more complex and dangerous than anyone had imagined.
Forensic intelligence links an Mi6 traitor to a bank account in Haiti where
a case of mistaken identity introduces Bond to the beautiful but feisty Camille
(OLGA KURYLENKO), a woman who has her own vendetta. Camille leads Bond straight
to Dominic Greene (MATHIEU AMALRIC), a ruthless business man and major force
within the mysterious organisation.
On a mission that leads him to Austria, Italy and South America, Bond discovers
that Greene, conspiring to take total control of one of the world’s
most important natural resources, is forging a deal with the exiled General
Medrano (JOAQUIN COSIO). Using his associates in the organisation, and manipulating
his powerful contacts within the CIA and the British government, Greene promises
to overthrow the existing regime in a Latin American country, giving the General
control of the country in exchange for a seemingly barren piece of land.
In a minefield of treachery, murder and deceit, Bond allies with old friends
in a battle to uncover the truth. As he gets closer to finding the man responsible
for the betrayal of Vesper, 007 must keep one step ahead of the CIA, the terrorists
and even M, to unravel Greene’s sinister plan and stop his organisation.
