We have to admit, when we heard the next Bond film was going to be called "Quantum of Solace," we kind of scrunched our faces a little bit. Still, Casino Royale was so good that we figured we'd give it the old innocent-until-proven-guilty treatment. Well, now we've seen the trailer, and it looks so bloody good we're all verklempt. We clapped at the end. And then we watched it again.

There's so much action in the trailer that we don't know how there's going to be room for story unless it's as long as Ben Hur, but right now we don't much care. There's only a brief glimpse of the DBS in the trailer at the very end, but whatever it's doing it looks suitably Bond-ish. We'll even admit that the 2-minute clip is good enough to forgive wrecking this Aston DBS, this Alfa, and another Aston DBS during filming. Now you'll have to excuse us while we go watch the trailer a third time. Come on, November 7. Check out the Quantum of Solace trailer for yourself after the jump.

      Has he learned to drive a stick by now? ;)

      Awesome trailer, but...

      WHERE THE HELL IS JOHN CLEASE!?!?!?!?

      Seriously, the last I heard of him was in that damned Harry Potter movie! And he's not even in them anymore!!!

        I love Cleese as well, but there will be no more Q and no more R... The whole point of the re-start of the Bond movies is to make it resonate with the world we live in today. Less camp, more grit. Just like Nolan did with Batman. After all, the have Bourne to compete with now, as he clearly out Bond-ed Bond... Casino Royale was amazing and this is shaping up to be right on par. This is a very human Bond, and the gadgets and the cars take a back seat (and rightfully so).

        In the 60's, gadgets were cool because personal electronics were still very much in their infancy. Now, things like invisible cars and camera's built into phones (!!) just don't have the sex factor they used to. TWINE was just campy...

        I for one, am excited...

      Love this new generation Bond films!! Less cheese, more fun! Very "Jason Bourne" this time.

      Did anyone else notice the Ford Edge at time 1:30ish.
        • 6 Years Ago
        It might be a Mondeo, it's very similar in looks to the Edge.
        • 6 Years Ago
        no it is the edge, its next to the chick walking.

      I know Autoblog might be inclined to show Moviefone trailers because they're AOL Video affiliates, etc. but the 007 website has the same trailer in much better resolution: http://www.007.com/#/video

      It looks sweet.

      I can't wait. As a huge Bond fan I am interested to see how Craig performs in the second movie. Casino Royale lacked in a few areas for me, but also excelled in others, so it will be interesting. The trailer certainly seems promising though - it has all of the required bond components, that's for sure. Let's just hope the DBS last more than 30 seconds this movie...

      Quantum of Solace!!!??!?


      -says repeatedly: *don't judge a book by it's cover, don't judge a book by it's cover*

        It means 'measure of comfort'... (as the producers put it 'it's exactly what they thought Bond needed after 'Casino') and is the actual title of one of Fleming's short stories

      Can't wait. I didn't really get into the bond movies until casino royal. The last one with the invisible car and the power suit or whatever was just too rediculous. Bond has definitely taken a similar route to batman. Started off good, got campy, and then they rebooted it grounded in realism.

      Also I think the driving a stick thing was just a rumor but all the Pierce obsessed fans were complaining at their craignotbond website. . . honestly he's an actor, who cares? I don't think anyone playing a secret agent or superhero can do 90% of the things they do in movies, that's why they're good actors, they pretend to be someone else and convince you its real.

        Watch "From Russia With Love" -best fight scene ever except for the one from "Bourne Supremacy" with the light-cord gogoplata.
