1. 'Quantum of Solace' 12A Certificate And Runtime Confirmed

    By Devin Zydel on 2008-10-14

    As previously reported on, Quantum of Solace was set to become the shortest James Bond film ever with a runtime of 106 minutes.

    The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) has today confirmed that run time, with the latest 007 adventure clocking in at exactly 105 minutes and 58 seconds.

    The website also officially announced a 12A certificate for the film, which should come as little surprise to Bond fans. The BBFC statement specifies that Quantum of Solace ‘contains frequent moderate action violence’ and made the following general remark:

    This film was originally seen by the BBFC in an unfinished version, for advice as to the film’s suitability at ’12A’. The BBFC advised the company that the film would most likely receive a ’12A’ as it was, but that care should be taken when finishing the film not to increase the intensity of certain scenes. When the completed version of the film was submitted for classification, reductions to one of those scenes had been made and the film was passed ’12A’ without cuts.
