    Sony’s Li Chow said the plan for were hoping to get Quantum of Solace on at least 1,000 screens across China, including both 35mm and digital. ‘We hope it will do well and can run until December, maybe Christmas,’ he said.

    Gala premieres for the Bond film are being planned for Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou.
