Trailer Blazer: 'Quantum of Solace'

I just have one question about the trailer for the newest Bond movie (which picks up its action directly after the end of Casino Royale): After two minutes of sexy, spy-y, revenge-y goodness, can you detect a single quantum of solace in any second of this preview?

    WOW. Mr. Vary clearly doesn’t know James Bond. Quantum of Solace was a James Bond short story from the collection “for your eyes only”. The narrative is done as an anecdote told to Bond.
    The Eon filmmakers have decided to recreate the series using the original book titles, which they’d stopped doing after “License to Kill”. After “Thunderball”, most of these movies paid some homage to the original stories but usually bore very little in common with them.
    BTW, I got this information from Kimberly Last’s “On Her Majesty’s Sercret Service” website. It’s a site EW gave an A+ to about a decade ago, and has more James Bond information (and links) than any other site on the planet. So how is it that one of EWs own people seems a little clueless on the subject?

    No solace detected, but boy, I can’t wait for that! Looks awesome! Daniel Craig is so Yummy!

    COOOOOL! Now I’m all hopped up for the movie! :) PS: Nice abs shot of JB near the end…

    I don’t know, Bond seemed to be getting some measure of solace from that naked redhead.

    holy crap! i had qualms about going to a non-action director for the follow-up to Campbell’s totally awesome Casino Royale, but from the trailer that looks like a moot point. i love jeffrey wright too

    most may not care, but does anyone know who’s doing the theme song since amy winehouse bowed out?

    Ep Sato, I think you’re missing the point of Adam’s post. He’s asking if anyone sees even a smidge of human compassion displayed in the trailer (given that a quantum of solace is “the smallest unit of human compassion that two people can have”). I don’t think he’s clueless about the movie title itself.
    Anyway, answering Adam’s question: I do think the still included from the trailer counts (assuming “James getting busy with a Bond girl” qualifies as “compassion”…).

    Frak the title. It looks awesome.

    i think beyonce is now doing the bond song since amy winehouse’s life is currently a hot mess.

    beetle, i think you’ve been given a wrong definition – it does not refer to two people, it means the smallest possible comfort (comfort being a synonym for solace and quantum being the smallest possible point of something).
    all this to say, i do think mr. vary’s completely missing the intent of casino royale and the (to me, so it must be right :p ) core of this trailer: bond is seeking whatever comfort he can through the slightly mindless rage of revenge for vesper’s death – a quest that, from all we know about the character, will be futile.
    i, film geek, proclaim the title apt and brilliant for this tragic tale. :D

    Is the enormous gun size jump that’s so prominent mean the treasured 007 logo will change?

    You can call the movie James Bond and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull for all I care. Call it Casion Royale: Attack of the Clones even!
    That trailer was awesome!
