A special preview of Quantum of Solace

Quantum of Solace, the 22nd spy film in the James Bond catalog, is due for release in the United Kingdom on October 31st, 2008. It is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Casino Royale, in which Bond, played flawlessly by Daniel Craig, had to infiltrate a high-stakes poker game to apprehend a world-renowned terrorist.

Casino Royale won critics over partly by telling the story of how James Bond became 007. Through numerous bond films and multiple characters playing the role, viewers of the series were never granted access into Bond's personal love life. Though there had always been the evident Bond-girl, there was never a story about why James Bond never fell in love. In Casino Royale, the viewers see that Bond was betrayed and turned cold-hearted by his girlfriend, Vesper Lynd, played by Eva Green.

This sequel delves deeper into Bond's beginnings as a super-agent. After his initial break from love in the first film, Quantum of Solace picks up exactly one hour after the first ended. Bond is colder in this film and seems to have a taste for revenge.
