On Her Majesty's Secret … Solace?

I loved Casino Royale, the first adventure of Daniel Craig as James Bond.

Review: Casino Royale

Today, Sony Pictures announced that the title for Bond’s next adventure will be …

Quantum of Solace.

I don’t even know what that means.

But it’s pretty damn bad-ass.

Here’s the story on Coming Soon:

22nd James Bond Film Has a Title!

… with an explanation of where the title comes from.

Here’s Sony’s press release about the movie and its plot:

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 organization 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 organization.

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 organization, 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 organization.

Sony hosted a press conference that you can read about here, and once you’ve done that, check out lots of awesome photos of the cast right here.

Jeffrey Wright returns as Felix Leiter!


And the new Bond Girls are appropriately delicious.

Can’t wait for this one.

You’ll want a Felix Leiter spin-off, too, when 007 returns to a cinema near you on November 7.
