Quantum of Solace drops Bond intro
Quantum of Solace will see the return of Daniel Craig as James Bond. However it looks like there won't be a return for some of his best known phrases.
The latest Bond outing, is to be the first of the films to lose some of the most well known phrases.
I think I'd describe myself as pretty darned excited about Quantum of Solace, Casino Royale was my favourite James Bond film in quite some time. However the latest film will be missing a couple of things. The introduction we all know Bond for will be missing, as will another famous phrase.
The Independent, through Latino Review, quotes director Marc Foster on the missing trademarks.
There was a 'Bond, James Bond' in the script. There are several places where we shot it as well, but it never worked as we hoped. I just felt we should cut it out, and Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson [the film's producers] agreed, and Daniel [Craig, who plays Bond] agreed, too. It's nice to be open-minded about the Bond formula. You can always go back to them later on.
There will be no "shaken not stirred" either. I'm all for it, give the cliches a rest. I can't wait for Quantum of Solace, until the end of next month though all we have is this trailer. Are you glad to see the back of those classic Bond phrases? Or should you not mess with tradition?
