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.

Quantum of Solace Poster

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?

Quantum of Solace will arrive in theaters on November 14th. The film will be directed by Marc Forster of Stranger Than Fiction and The Kite Runner.

    Sweet Merciful crap...a shadow! How inspired! First the obscure title, now a picture of a shadow, I think I'll wait for the trailer to get excited. Just my opinion.
  • Brad
    I like it. Simple but effective. Quantum should kick ass.
  • TCox
    I like it. The minimalist approach Alex mentioned works for me. I've always been a fan of "less or more". The title is odd, but if you have any doubts, then watch Casino Royale again. It's brilliant. It excites me to see this be a direct sequal too. I love the serial style movies. I always want to know what's going to happen next. Daniel Craig may not look like your dad's James Bond, but he's the closest we've had to Sean Connery. I like him, and I hope he sticks around longer than Brosnan did.

    Great poster. The title is a bit of a mouthful of marbles, but I guess it makes sense in the scheme of things. Daniel Craig is a terrific Bond (it makes me chuckle to remember the Craig-Not-Bond haters).

    Is it just me or has James Bond gotten taller
  • dom
    The main thing to be looking at here is the fact that Bond isn't holding his usual hand gun - but rather a machine gun - again the producers are trying to stir up the formula that has worked for 20 odd films - hmmmm
  • http://www.firstshowing.net Alex Billington
    You're right about that Dom, they are really switching up the formula. But it worked with Casino Royale, very well, considering it was the top grossing Bond film EVER, so I think they like their new formula and marketing techniques and will continue to implement them for as long as they can. Why not define something new instead of going with the old...?

    Marc Forster directing the new James Bond movie which is a direct sequel to "Casino Royale", holy shittt! I am hyped for this shit. Knowing Forster, he'll put it up in an artsy way. Great poster!
  • chris abraham
    Cute and Effective Poster! But, the Title lacks Punch... Does it mean our ruthless Bond is after a Quantum of Solace?? Somebody, help me please...
  • John
    What makes this Bond so good to me, is that he's a mans man. No pretty boy type,rough and tough and can still get the ladies.Keep it up Bro!
