One of the films that is very high on my list for the rest of 2008 is the upcoming 22nd James Bond flick Quantum of Solace. And even though absolutely know one knows what the film’s title means, I am glad to see Daniel Craig back in action, chasing down Bond girls and doing all of those fancy stunts. This one appears to be another solid bond flick, much like Casino Royale, as evidence of the strong reaction to the recently released teaser trailer.
Along with the trailer, Sony has begun to release some of the behind the scenes footage that was gathered on location, as well as interviews with the cast and crew. Those of you with tricky internet skills may have seen these elsewhere, but this was my first time seeing them, so I thought that it can’t hurt to share. First up is the newest featurette, one that includes interview footage of stars Daniel Craig and Gemma Arterton talking about what it’s like to work with director Marc Forster:

We also have a second video to show you that focuses on new femme fatale Olga Kurylenko (Hitman) and the rigorous training program that she was put through in preparation for here role as Camille. Have a look for yourself below:

Quantum of Solace is directed, as I mentioned before, by Marc Forster, director of Stranger than Fiction and The Kite Runner. Returning to their roles from Casino Royale are Bond himself, Daniel Craig and Dame Judy Dench as M. Mathieu Amalric (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) will play bad guy Dominic Greene, while Olga Kurylenko and Gemma Arterton will be Bond’s ladies.
The film hits theaters on November 7, 2008.
