Quantum of Solace

I believe that myself and my good friend Pete from Slashfilm just had a serious moment of clarity — here we are, sitting in L.A. after the junket for The Dark Knight, both trying to knock out some news stories for all of you and up pops this new trailer for the upcoming 22nd James Bond film Quantum of Solace. Almost in unison, we watch the trailer and proceed to make a reference along the lines of “wow, that looks like it is a Bourne film.”

And sure, we both know that Bond was around long before Jason Bourne was a figment of Paul Greengrass’ presumably steadicamed wet dreams, but the action in the following trailer is oddly reminiscent of the fast-paced, high flying energy of the Bourne franchise. Combine that with the flashy, colorful shots that are almost direct descendants of the flamboyant Bond films of the 70s and we’ve got ourselves a damn impressive trailer. But enough talk, it is time to trailer.

If you are like me, and you have been inadvertantly staying away from this production, then this trailer might just hit you like a ton of bricks — it is intense, interesting and it leads me to believe that this film is going to be wicked. Alright, so maybe I won’t go that far — but the trailer is certainly badass in every way — which should lead to me paying a little bit more attention.

Quantum of Solace is scheduled to hit theaters on November 7, 2008. The trailer can be seen in High Definition over at AOL Moviefone.

What do you think of the first Quantum of Solace trailer?
