Despite a couple of disastrous and debilitating setbacks, filming of the next Bond flick, the Quantum of Solace, is back, with production continuing in the mountains of Carrara, Italy. Unfortunately, these newest shots from the set are further proof that the writers and producers have absolutely no regard for the hotness that is the Aston Martin DBS. To their credit, the death of the DBS was deliberate, as 007 is chased through a rock quarry by a handful of villains piloting Alfa Romeos. The 15-minute scene will make up the pre-credit sequence that is the staple of any good Bond film (they're always our favorite), right before they cue the cheesy retro-pop and cut to blacked-out babes wielding heavy artillery.

Thanks for the tip, Miguel!

      I know it was deliberate, but still...


      That made the baby Jesus cry.

      At least we know this movie, unlike the last one, will have a decent driving scene.

      As a huge fan of Aston and current/future owner, this movie better blow my mind, Toooo many DBS's getting destroyed and there is a 5 year waiting list for these damn things.

      I just saw Goldfinger again on the big screen.. and sadly, that amazing Aston is crashed in it as well.. but it's a friggin amazingly swell flick. Bond is the only action movie I'll bother with. Witty, stylish, fast, sexy ... and amazing cars every time.

      From the angle of that picture, it appears it might just be an empty bodyshell.

      Actually I heard jesus got into the whole hollywood prius trend so he's not really into astons.

        *Your* Jesus, perhaps. Mine built my hotrod. ;-)

      Sometimes in a movie you'll see a stunt double and be like "Man, that totally looked different, ruined this movie for me".

      I wouldn't care if they crashed a red Kia into a wall right at the dramatic moment. I'd be like "Oh, awesome. A great scene, and it didn't end in the destruction of such an awesome car."

      I hope they at least just crashed a mule or something.

      Not this again.

      I'm going to kill whoever keeps coming up with the idea to crash Aston Martins because they think it will make the car scenes cooler. If you're just going to crash a car into a wall, I'll gladly take it off your hands :-)

      "cheesy retro-pop and cut to blacked-out babes wielding heavy artillery"

      That's so insulting. It's a mainstay of any Bond movie, it's an iconic opening sequence and far from cheesy.

      Maybe we should learn to drive the car before we get in.

      Is the director a member of Greenpeace or something? We should get Jeremy Clarkson to be the director (hehe, crashed Prius!)
