  1. Official 'Quantum of Solace' Trailer Coming 2 July

    According to Ain’t It Cool News, an official Quantum of Solace trailer will be attached to Sony Pictures’ Hancock, a superhero comedy starring Will Smith, Jason Bateman and Charlize Theron. Hancock hits cinemas on 2 July in the United Kingdom and the United States.

    It’s unclear whether the trailer will be a teaser or a theatrical. The teaser trailer for Casino Royale was released in May 2006 so it’s possible that the 2 July trailer will be the second and that we’ll get a teaser in the spring.

    Filming will be nearly completed in July so there will be a lot of good footage ready for the trailer regardless of whether it’s a teaser or a theatrical trailer.

  7. Plot Detail Revealed?

    Yesterday, Variety reported that “the Marc Forster-helmed film, loosely based on the Ian Fleming short story “Risico,” finds 007 (Daniel Craig) dispatched to infiltrate a drug ring flooding Britain with heroin.”

    You may remember that in August, screenwriter Paul Haggis, denied that Bond 22 will be based on an Ian Fleming short story. However, he added that the script is “steeped in a lot of Fleming’s ideas.”

    Is this drug ring plot one of the Fleming ideas Haggis alluded to or is Variety exhibiting poor reporting by rehashing an old rumour? Only time will tell.

    According to, the coasts of Panama have been chosen by producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson as a filming location for Bond 22.

    Two weeks ago, CBn reported that Bond 22 will have South American locations which means Panama, a Central American country, could have possibly been chosen to double as a South American country for the film.

    The site also claims the title of Bond 22 may be The Property of a Lady which seems very unlikely at this point.
