The Secrets of Quantum Solace
We’ve got the secrets of Quantum Solace right here. Beware! There are more than a few spoilers!
IGN Movies was among the select international media outlets invited last week to visit the Chilean set of the forthcoming James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace. The Marc Forster-directed film finds 007 (once again played by Daniel Craig) on a quest to uncover the shadowy terrorist organization behind the events depicted in 2006’s Casino Royale, the long-running franchise’s most successful entry.
Filming took place at the Residencia of the Paranal Observatory located in the arid, Martian-like Atacama desert, a two-hour bus ride from the coastal city of Antofagasta. At over 8000 feet above sea level, the air is thin at the Residencia and the sky is so clear that the moon is already visible at 11 a.m. The sun is hotter than it feels there; one could suffer a nasty sunburn in no time, even though the temperature feels like a deceptively mild California climate. For full coverage of our set visit, check out our fellow Fox Interactive Media site Rotten Tomatoes. The following report will provide you with a wealth of juicy details about Quantum of Solace that we learned while in Chile, so be advised that there’s more than a quantum of SPOILERS ahead.
Quantum of Solace finds Bond on the trail of businessman Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric), a key member of the shadowy organization that 007 has been investigating. Producer Michael G. Wilson revealed to us that this shadowy network is called Quantum; Greene even sports a silver “Q” lapel pin. To the public, Greene is an eco-friendly tycoon, the head of the Greene Planet corporation who’s out to help save the world. But this public persona conceals a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Although the filmmakers were quick to point out that Quantum of Solace is not a political film but pure Bondian escapist entertainment, the villain’s scheme revolves around several timely ideas, such as the issue of regime change.
