    A new Variety article cites the importance of the film’s 31 October debut in the UK, following it’s world premiere two days earlier on the 29th. Quantum of Solace also opens in France and Sweden on the 31st with the rest of its worldwide releases following primarily in the first two weeks of November.

    ‘I think it’s absolutely crucial that it starts off in a positive way, because it will affect the rest of the world,’ said director Marc Forster.

    Following in the footsteps of 2006’s Casino Royale will hardly be an easy task, however. Daniel Craig’s debut 007 film rewrote the Bond recordbook when it came to box office takings and managed to captivate critics and fans alike–resulting in overwhelmingly positive reviews and BAFTA nominations (including a Best Actor mention for Craig).
