Quantum of Solace shows Bond seeking revenge for the death of his former girlfriend. He starts by kidnapping Mr. White, a member of the Quantum organization, and alongside M (Dench) questions him about quantum. During the interrogation, M's bodyguard attacks her. In the shock, Bond manages to kill the bodyguard, but White escapes. While researching the bodyguard, Bond ends up in Haiti following a lead.
Bond uncovers a plan hatched by an "environmentalist", Dominic Greene (Amalric), to help a General from Bolivia overthrow the government while in exchange giving Greene some land. Bond also discovers that Greene is trying to kill his lover, Camille Montes (Kurylenko).
Bond recues Montes, and tracks Greene to Austria. Bond interrupts Quantum's meeting, and chaos breaks loose. This time an advisor to the Prime Minister is killed. After this fight, M tells Bond he needs to report back home, but he refuses. In response to his disobedience, M shuts down his passport and credit cards.
Bond goes to Mathis (Giannini), and recruits him for his mission. Upon arriving at the airport, Bond is approached by Officer Fields (Arterton) who demands that Bond returns to the UK! Bond ignores the command, seduces her and takes her as a date for a party that Greene is hosting. Bond rescues Montes again, and as they flee in Bond's car, they are pulled over by police and Mathis's dead body is found in the trunk, framing Bond. Bond and Montes are freed and fly to the land Greene is acquiring to search it. They are shot down and land in a hole. In that hole, Bond discovers that Greene will control Bolivia's fresh water supply to become rich. Bond returns to his hotel, and M is waiting and tells Bond that while he was gone that Officer Fields had been killed. She attempts to arrest Bond, but he escapes.
Bond finds out from CIA friend Felix (Wright) that Greene and the Bolivian General are meeting and Bond breeches the meeting. Bond kills the chief of police for killing his friend, Mathis, and fights Greene. During this, Camille finds and kills the General, whom had killed her family many years prior. Bond ends up besting Greene, and questions him about Quantum, then leaves him in the desert to die.
The end shows Bond finding the man responsible for his former lover's death, Yusef. Yusef is a member of quantum, and tricks women with important information to tell him. Bond hands him over to M16 for arrest, as M tells Bond that Greene was found dead.
Daniel Craig, the man otherwise known as 007, has some unkind things to say about the Kardashian family, and he shared them in a recent GQ interview. "Look at the Kardashians, they are worth millions. Millions! I don't think they were that badly off to begin with but now look at them. You see that and you think, 'What, you mean all I have to do is behave like a f***ing idiot on television and then you'll pay me millions?' I'm not judging it. Well, I am, obviously." Craig recently married gorgeous actress (and Cambridge grad) Rachel Weisz, and unlike the soon-to-be-divorced Kardashians, the couple did so as far from the spotlight as possible.
You can only keep secrets about movies for so long, even if you're making a movie about a top-secret spy agency. Eventually, someone is going to crack your code and leak your intel. Such is the case with "Bond 23," which has been the working title for the new James Bond movie up to this point. The project has been fairly secretive, but there has been a flurry of activity of late that has been too difficult to contain. For example, we're fairly certain that the title of the new Bond movie will be "Skyfall," as a series of web domains containing the words "Bond" and "Skyfall" were recently snatched up.
We know who the next Bond girl is (beautiful French actress Bérénice Marlohe), what the tentative title of the movie is ("Skyfall") and now we officially know who Bond will be battling - Academy Award winner Javier Bardem. We reported on rumors of Bardem's involvement back in January, and the actor has finally confirmed the role. "They chose me to play this man, but I cannot give you many details," Bardem told ABC's "Nightline" Here's what we know so far.
Last night DreamWorks released the trailer for the much-anticipated science fiction western mash-up "Cowboys & Aliens." The all star cast includes buff "Bond" Daniel Craig, hottie Olivia Wilde, Harrison Ford and Sam Rockwell. In the trailer, Craig is dropped off in the Wild West with no explaination of where he came from or who he is. At first suspicious of the new resident, the locals try to lock him up. That's when the westerners meet the alien invaders and it looks like it's up to Craig to save the town.
It was just almost exactly a year ago to the day that production on the 23rd James Bond movie, currently referred to as "Bond 23," was postponed indefinitely. In this case, "indefinitely" meant "a year," because Sony and MGM have struck a deal to make "Bond 23" happen! The two studios will co-finance the film, and production will move forward. The original delay was thought to be a result of financial woes at MGM, but with this deal those problems are in the past.
Daniel Craig is one of a number of high profile names to have played James Bond in the exciting spy movies, and has followed in the footsteps of actors such as Sean Connery, Roger Moore, and Piers Brosnan . His last James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace, was a box office smash, and marked his second time as the suave super-spy. Following his success in Quantum of Solace Daniel Craig is now set to play James Bond for a third time, after movie studios gave the go ahead for another James Bond movie to go into production.
Deadline New York is reporting this week that Javier Bardem, Academy Award nominee for Best Actor for his work in “Biutiful,” will be cast as a villain in the upcoming James Bond film. Not much is yet known about the as-yet-untitled Bond #23, but Daniel Craig will reportedly be returning as James Bond, and Sam Mendes will be directing a screenplay Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan. Reports have the script picking off where the previous film, "Quantum of Solace," left off.
The new Spider-Man Andrew Garfield and Gemma Arterton from the James Bond movie Quantum of Solace are among the five contenders for the rising star award of the British Academy Film and Television Arts (BAFTA). Arterton released a statement after hearing the news of her nomination and she said, "”I'm in very good company with the other actors who have been nominated, so it is a huge compliment to be considered to win this prestigious award." The 24-year old actress also played the lead role in the country comedy film “Tamara Drewe” and Jake Gylenhaal’s female lead opposite in the adventure movie “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time” which were released last year.
