Daniel Craig chose Quantum
When the title of the new James Bond film was revealed, there were a few raised eyebrows. That and a few mutterings of, "you what". Well now the person responsible for the title can be revealed, it's James Bond himself, Daniel Craig.
You can feel free to tell him you don't like it. Just be prepared for the consequences.
Quantum of Solace was a strange title when it first came out. I'm just about used to it by now, but at first I wasn't a fan. Now Daniel Craig, says he came up with the name. Quoted on Jo Blo, he said:
I was involved in making the decision. Names were coming out, some ludicrous stuff was going back and forth - I can't remember exactly, but you know the sort of thing: 'The Blood On Your Face'... I knew I didn't want 'death', 'die', 'bleed' or any of those things in the title
So he came up with the name, which is from a short story by Bond author Ian Fleming. Craig says the title means pretty much nothing along with other Bond film titles.
As soon as it came out, people were saying, 'Ooh, it sounds like Harry Potter'. No, it's Quantum of Solace. I was saying, 'It's a Bond title! The name of a Bond film is not about anything. Live And Let Die? Octopussy? What does it mean? It means very little.
Goldfinger meant something for sure. And so did Dr No. There must be others that actually had something to do with the film. Anyone? At least we all know who to thank for the current title. Still the film looks awesome, so maybe we can forgive him. Any ideas what this film could have been called?
