    … at the box office that is … James Bond, Quantum Of Solace shattered international weekend box office records including knocking Harry Potter off the all-time number one spot in Great Britian.

    Did anybody see it yet? And WTF is up with it not opening in the USA until Nov. 14th? Anybody know? I saw Casino Royale with Daniel Craig as Bond = the best Bond since Roger Moore by far imo. Looking forward to this one.

    I agree. Pierce Brosnan was dull and Timothy Dalton was smarmy...

    I really dislike Pierce Brosnan so I never watched any of the Bond films he was in. Casino Royale was a pleasant surprise, so I'm looking forward to the strangely named Quantum of Solace.

    USA meaning the United States of American, I assume?

    Both of them sucked big time, they just weren’t “Bond”

    Craig is awesome and restored the franchise to its former grandeur.

    Can happen to anyone. Wouldn't have pointed it out if you hadn't corrected it before once already.

    I really liked Casino Royale and am looking forward to Quantum of Solace. I enjoyed Moore's Bond when I was a kid, but now I really appreciate Connery, who played Bond more like a thug (which was Fleming's conception of Bond, after all) in the early movies. For that reason, I appreciate Craig's interpretation of Bond as a man with barely-restrained violent tendencies.

    Is the movie actually good? I never saw the last one, and now I hear the new one is so good...
    And yeah, I do believe Daniel Craig is a better James Bond then the last one, much better, he was just a fake... But lucky always nie girls

    It was enjoyable for what it is, I didnt like the story very much but the visuals were quite something! 7 outta 10 IMO.
