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.
