According to Cinematical:

Quote
It hasn't been long since the title for Bond 22 was finally announced (is it me, or does Quantum of Solace sound too sci-fi for a Bond flick?), and already we have a poster and some tasty behind the scenes footage. That's the poster above, first unveiled over at The Daily Mail, and now a larger version has come to us via JoBlo (via Toxicshock). Honestly, I'm not all that crazy about it -- the thing looks too damn busy. And what's up with calling it Marc Forster's Quantum of Solace? I'd prefer it if they removed the names and simply said James Bond in Quantum of Solace. That brings an old school flavor to the advertisement, and it doesn't look as crowded. But what do I know; I'm just the idiot internet writer.

Is there any question about it being a fake?  I don't care what Cinematical says, they've been had. 

I remember seeing the "Digitally Processed" logo in the bottom left there only on VHS tapes in the 1980s.  As well as that old MGM/UA logo.

If this came from a credible source, then they got it from a bad one.

totally fake.  good call on the details sparrow.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Yeah, the original source of this poster, www.toxicshock.tv, clearly labels it as a fan-made poster.  JoBlo and Cinematical just missed it, apparently.

UPDATE: Here's the deviantART page for the guy who originally made this poster (he posted it back in June! No idea how he knew the title way back then, unless it was a damn lucky guess).
First things first, I'm surrealist

Arterton: She's called Agent Fields and she's not a typical Bond girl. She's actually quite funny, and very real, and someone that you could know from down the road. There's something very fresh about her. For me, she's got stuff that all women can identify with.



seriously, i've been reading this same fucking quote ever since the tomorrow never dies days.   if i were a bond girl i'd say ' my bond girl's a pretty standard bond girl. there's absolutely no new layer of character depth in her. she's not very real, and hopelessly stupid, even though she knows a few fancy words and the name of drinks you've never dreamed of.  she's very sexy and married to a rich dude, but then she has sex with bond. women all around the world will probably be mad because of the way bond treats her.'
context, context, context.

Tabloids tout Amy Winehouse for Bond theme again, Craig slams rumours

Daniel Craig insists rumours about Amy Winehouse being lined up to write and perform the theme song to the new James Bond film are "way off".

Reacting to press rumours that resurfaced this week,Craig said, "Why is everybody ramming [the name] Amy Winehouse out? It’s just way, way off that."

"Everyone’s speculating about it but we’ve got other things to deal with - there’s no point in writing the song for a movie when we haven’t got a movie," Craig told MTV.

Tabloid newspaper The Sun claims that Winehouse will get to write the new James Bond theme as well as sing it - but only if she stays off drugs for two months. The paper claims she has been told she must still be clean in April to make the record.

A "source" confirmed for the paper last night: "That’s when the Bond people make a final decision on who sings the theme. If Amy is clean then, it’s hers."

"It’s another fantastic carrot being dangled to encourage her to give up drugs", said the paper's "insider".

Possible Spoilers

Al Pacino - 007's Next Blofeld?

By Garth Franklin
Source: Dark Horizons
Thursday, February 14th 2008 12:36am




If you go back to the first seven James Bond films and watch them in order, you'll find a serialised consistency to the criminal organisation SPECTRE - the bad guys throughout all the Sean Connery (and George Lazenby) films of the series.

In "Dr. No", the film's villain only mentioned the organisation. In the second and fourth ("From Russia with Love," "Thunderball") you saw more of SPECTRE, though the head of the group was only a cameo by a man who never showed his face - only his arms, lower torso, and white Persian cat. In the fifth ("You Only Live Twice") he finally revealed his face and name (Ernst Stavro Blofeld) and served as the main villain right through til the end of the seventh ("Diamonds are Forever").

Played by the likes of Donald Pleasance, Telly Savalas and Charles Gray, the character's distinctive cat, Nehru jacket, and at times bald head and facial scarring became icons of supervillainy and inspired many copycats and homages - most notably Mike Myers' Dr. Evil in the "Austin Powers" films. Due to rights issues, the character never came back after 'Diamonds' short of an unnamed appearance where he was killed off at the beginning of 1981's "For Your Eyes Only", and a short appearance by Max Von Sydow in the unofficial Bond feature "Never Say Never Again" in 1983.

Now the series may follow a similar pattern this time around. 2006's unofficial restart with "Casino Royale" had only mentions of an organisation that the villain LeChiffre worked for and was ultimately killed by one of its members Mr. White. As previously reported, the upcoming follow-up "Quantum of Solace" has Bond (Daniel Craig) finding out more about this group and tackling a villain named Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric) who's another member.

An interesting story today however at AICN reports that the film will also feature a cameo by the head of this organisation who will possibly serve as the larger villain overall throughout Daniel Craig's stint as 007 (Craig is said to be signed on for five films in total so far). Here's what they said about the role and who may be playing it:

"The big news that he leaked was that Al Pacino would be taking part in filming. I was a little shocked as the cast has been revealed aready, but he said Pacino would play the head of the terrorist group introduced in 'Casino Royale' and 'Quantum of Solace'. Al is said to come to Pinewood in April-May to film what is said to be a brief cameo."

The news is surprising considering the Bond films are more notable for casting mostly unknown actors rather than household names - there's always exceptions though in case of the Bond girls like Denise Richards & Halle Berry, but the villains tend to be proven European & American thesps that are hardly known by the public at large at the time. AICN however states the rumor is unconfirmed as yet even through their regular sources so be aware it's still very much up in the air.

The news has received decidedly mixed reaction with only those newcomers who jumped onboard with 'Royale' and ignore the rest seemingly approving. Personally as much as I like Pacino I hope it's not true - this is more the role for a talented British veteran actor, a well enough known name but one that can disappear into a role. In other 007 news, video is up of shooting underway in Panama City where the National Theatre stage was converted to a scene set in the Bolivian jungle.

Amy Winehouse won't record track for new James Bond film

Amy Winehouse has abandoned recording the theme to the latest James Bond film because the singer is not ready to work, her producer said Friday.

Mark Ronson, who produced much of Winehouse's Grammy-winning "Back to Black," said the soul diva is "not ready to record any music."

Ronson said the two started work on the track for the upcoming Bond movie "Quantum of Solace" but it would take "some miracle of science" to finish it, he said in an interview with Sky News.

Winehouse's troubles with drugs, law enforcement and her rocky romance with her jailed husband Blake Fielder-Civil have kept the singer in the spotlight.

Police gave her a formal warning last week after she scuffled with two men during a raucous night out.

Jack White, Alicia Keys to 'Bond' for 'Quantum of Solace'

The next James Bond film has its theme song. Jack White and Alicia Keys have tag-teamed to record "Another Way to Die" for the November release "Quantum of Solace," the second Bond flick to feature Daniel Craig in the lead role.

It had been speculated for a few weeks that Keys would be tapped to the perform the song, and now she has a drummer. White will provide the rhythm for the cut and serve as its writer-producer, confirmed in a release today from Columbia Pictures. "Another Way to Die" is hyped as the first duet for a Bond film.

White and Keys are the latest Americans to tackle a main Bond song, following Chris Cornell, who did "You Know My Name" for "Casino Royale" in 2006. And like the latter, "Another Way to Die" will be one of the rare Bond theme songs to not actually feature the name of the movie in the title.

The announcement brings to end months of speculation as to who would sing the latest Bond theme. Rumors earlier this year had Amy Winehouse doing the honors, but her producer-collaborator Mark Ronson declared her "not ready." Newcomer Leona Lewis had also been rumored to be in the running.

The soundtrack to "Quantum of Solace" will be released by J Records, Keys' record label, on Oct. 28.

'Solace' moves closer to Turkey Day
Rescheduling of Bond film tied to 'Harry Potter' departure
Source: Hollywood Reporter

Sony's Columbia Pictures and MGM said Thursday that the next James Bond film, "Quantum of Solace," will move back one week to Nov. 14. That move is closely tied to the previous departure of Warner Bros.' "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" from its Nov. 21 release berth.

Just last week, the sixth "Potter" film newly planted its domestic flag on July 17 as executives sought to fill a hole in Warners' summer 2009 slate. The most immediate response to that move was Summit Entertainment moving its youth-targeted vampire film "Twilight" up three weeks into the vacated "Potter" slot.

Now Sony execs -- who have had been wishing for a release date closer to Thanksgiving and the holiday boxoffice season for their next Bond release -- have taken "Solace" to a suddenly much more attractive slot. After all, Bond's previous perch on Nov. 7 was intended to maximize pre-"Potter" playtime.

Scratch that worry.

" 'Harry Potter' moving out gave us an opportunity to get a little closer to the holidays, which has always been the traditional Bond spot," Sony worldwide marketing and distribution chairman Jeff Blake said. "Bond has a really good history of not only playing through Thanksgiving but going deep into the Christmas holidays."

Sony unspooled the most recent Bond film, "Casino Royale," on Nov. 17, 2006, and the Daniel Craig starrer still was playing in about 1,100 theaters between the following Christmas and New Year's, Blake noted.

Sony, which is a minority stake owner of MGM, holds worldwide theatrical rights to the two most recent Bond movies, with longtime Bond franchise co-owner MGM controlling all post-theatrical windows. (The other co-owner of the Bond oeuvre is the Broccoli family's Eon Prods.)

Three other domestic wide releases are set for Nov. 14: Fox's Baz Luhrmann-helmed adventure "Australia," starring Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman; the MGM comedy "Soul Men," toplined by Samuel L. Jackson and Bernie Mac; and Overture's Freddy Rodriguez starrer "Nothing Like the Holidays."

Universal's comedy "Role Models," with Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott, also had been set for Nov. 14. But just a few hours after word spread of Sony's move with its Bond film, Universal moved the comedy up one week to Nov. 7, where the Paramount-distributed DreamWorks Animation sequel "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa" now represents its sole wide rival.

Besides "Twilight," two other domestic wide releases are set for Nov. 21. Those include "Bolt" from Disney -- which always has a big release bowing over the Turkey Day play period -- and DreamWorks/Paramount's "The Soloist," a drama about the relationship between Los Angeles Times columnist Steve Lopez (Robert Downey Jr.) and a violin-playing homeless man (Jamie Foxx).

Internationally, Bond films tend to get an earlier jump in the U.K. So "Solace" will get a world premiere Oct. 29 in London, followed two days later by its U.K. opening.

Sony said Prince William and Prince Harry will attend the world premiere.
