This year's big James Bond flick, Quantum of Solace, had a distinct hydrogen theme through and through. Starting with the redesigned Ford Ka that was emblazoned with hydrogen stickers - even though Ford doesn't actually, and as far as we know isn't planning to, make hydrogen versions of any of its production machines. The hydrogen party didn't end there, though. Later in the movie, the bad guy's entire lair was fueled on hydrogen gas, and the entire building ended up incinerating itself in a Hin
After Daniel Craig's triumphant return as James Bond in Casino Royale, my family and I were really looking forward to seeing his sophomore effort in Quantum of Solace. We were among the guests at a Ford preview screening of the new Bond flick last night, and after we walked past the gorgeous Aston Martin DBS placed in the lobby (talk about product placement), the movie got off to a promising start. The opening chase sequence with Bond's DBS being pursued by a crew of Alfa Romeo 159s was classic
Who's not looking forward to the new Bond flick Quantum of Solace that opens in theaters on October 29th?

And he isn't limited to driving on the street. Aston has made its test track available to the faux agent. Craig must be quite the Ambassador to the brand to be granted such special privileges. Unfortunately, Mr. Bond seems to have no intentions of actually going out and purchasing one for

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.

Filming of the latest Bond flick, Quantum of Solace, has been put on hiatus after two stunt drivers were injured during filming. The crash apparently took place while performing a chase sequence where one driver in an Alfa Romeo crashed into a wall while chasing Bond's Aston Martin DBS along the Gardesana, a curvy road that lines Lake Garda. The man behind the wheel of the Alfa was flown to the hospital in a helicopter and is in serious condition, while his passenger sustained only minor injurie
