First Poster for James Bond 22: Quantum of Solace
The very first teaser poster for the 22nd James Bond film, titled Quantum of Solace, has debuted and it's pretty impressive. Last year's teaser poster for Casino Royale with Bond sitting at the poker table with a gun was one of my all-time favorite Bond posters ever, an incredible feat. This new one now ranks pretty high on my list as well, impressive for a poster this early in the year! If you're ready to stop listening to my boring nonsense introduction, then let's cut to the chase and enjoy this slick new poster.
The poster comes from our friends at Cinematical, so send some love their way. This reminds me a lot of the international Bourne Ultimatum posters that popped up last year (check those out here), but still has that Bond sensibility to it.
Some new details have been revealed as well, including confirmation that "there will be twice as much action in 'Solace' as there was in 'Casino Royale'" and that the film "picks up a mere 20 minutes after 'Casino Royale' concludes." This is the first time in history that any Bond film has been a direct sequel.
Incase you didn't catch the connection, that shadow is from the very last scene of Casino Royale, where Bond shoots the villain character in his driveway and comes walking up with that very same gun. Given Casino Royale was the must financially successful Bond movie ever, they're really use that film as the driving point for all marketing this year. On top of that, Quantum of Solace continues from that exact same moment, right where Casino Royale ends, Quantum of Solace picks up.
I love this poster for quite a few reasons, mainly the simplicity and minimalism of it. Just like that last aforementioned teaser poster, this one is striking enough to resonate in the minds of Casino Royale fans and James Bond fans everywhere, which is all they really need to market Quantum of Solace at the moment. What are your thoughts?
