Where was I? Oh, right. Remember when there was some skepticism around Daniel Craig taking on the role as James Bond? Some argued he wasn't debonaire enough, or something. But he and the team behind Casino Royale proved the naysayers wrong and not only scored huge critical and box office success, but managed to redefine James Bond as the kind of action hero audiences are craving these days: a human being we can actually relate to (see also: Jason Bourne).
These behind-the-scenes clips not only reveal the vast production efforts (including many different shooting locations employed across the globe) going into the next installment, Quantum of Solace, but how cognizant the filmmakers are of what made Casino Royale so special. To me, this means the odds are good that this new movie (despite its mind-boggling title — seriously, quantum and solace . . . what?) will turn out as well as the last one.
Quantum of Solace hits U.S. theaters November 7 (October 31 in England). To watch dreamy Daniel and the rest of film crew discuss the making of the new Bond movie, read more.
