Good news: Next Bond film has been announced, and better yet it picks up right where Casino Royalle leaves off.

Bad news... the name.  "Quantum of Solace".  WTF?  Did they use the Castlevania game name generator?

Anyway, all is forgiven, since here is zOMG TEH NEXT BOND GURL!1!!!



[edit] Ok, now I get it.  That was the name of a short story Ian Flemming wrote.  So it's his fault.

it sounds like some chick flick that should be starring Ethan Hawke and Julia Stiles where she plays a physics scientist who falls for a quintuple amputee.

Weird name- sounds more like SF but since they are pulling from Fleming's unused titles I'm happy it was this instead of the previously rumored "Property of a Lady." 

Oh well- I could care less what the title is.  I loved Casino Royale and I'm very much looking forward to this one.

Well, the new bond girl is astoundingly hot, and the title is astoundingly stupid. However, its an original Fleming title, so I have no problem with that. I do think it will hurt marketing for the film, however-its fairly well established that complicated, less "catchy" titles or subtitles negatively influence awareness of certain films. One of the reasons I think Casino Royale was so immediately recognizable. Fantastic title.

That's the worst movie name I have ever heard.  We are all dumber for having heard that name.

The name sucks but all will be forgiven if the movie rocks.

Terrible name, but seeing as it's taken directly from one of the short stories then it makes sense. Makes me really curious about the plot after reading that story description though.

I'm curious.  Everyone is saying it is a horrible name but not saying why.

Why?

Anyone that thinks Olga Kurylenko is hot needs to watch Hitman.

And to add to the choir here... that is indeed one of the worst movie titles ever.

Guys, could someone NSFW this please?  You can see her areola/nipple through that.

If a student had walked into my office when I opened this thread they'd have thought I was looking at some weird lesbian porn board smile.

That is one high-resolution monitor you have there - I can't see nippies.

I could have sworn I saw shadow there.  Maybe I just need to learn how to clean my office monitor smile.

Nevermind smile.

Despite staring at that picture for ten minutes... I still can't see her nipple.

I'll try some more.

I read somewhere that this new movie will pick up one hour after the end of the last one.

So the name has something to do with the fact that Bond is seeking revenge still.

Reminds me of that Futurama episode where they were talking about how horrible the resolution was on the TV's in our century - to the point that a viewer back then probably couldn't even make out Amy's Obscene tattoo

Taken literally, that is a really grotesque thought.
