Who needs water in the desert when you have an assault rifle?
So at long last, the Quantum of Solace trailer has finally made it’s debut. But unlike previous Bond movies, this new film seems to be doing something different from almost all of it’s predecessors, it’s remembering what happened in the last film.
Most Bond girls are thrown away by the double-0 agent at the end of each film like the disposable eye candy they usually are. This time however, Quantum opens about twenty minutes after Casino Royale ended, and the new film is an outward spiral of events triggered from what happened in the last film.
Bond’s love, I’m-not-going-to-pretend-I-remember-her-name, is dead, and he’s quite pissed about it. According to the trailer, seeking revenge against those who contributed to her demise involves hooking up with at least two new hot chicks, Olga Kurylenko and Gemma Arterton, and the necessary amounts of machine gun fire and Aston Martins. M is quite upset at his rogue status, forcing Bond to go all Bourne on everyone and track down the evildoers all the while avoiding capture himself.
Quantum of Solace opens Novemember 7th and maybe then we can figure out what the hell the name’s about.
