The title of the upcoming James Bond film, “Quantum of Solace”, sounds like nonsense. Sure, it’s based off a short story title from Ian Fleming’s Bond adventures, but that story has nothing to do with this story. Now Daniel Craig is saying “Solace” was his choice and better than anything violent sounding.

“I was involved in making the decision. Names were coming out, some ludicrous stuff was going back and forth – I can’t remember exactly, but you know the sort of thing: ‘The Blood On Your Face’… I knew I didn’t want ‘death’, ‘die’, ‘bleed’ or any of those things in the title.”

“As soon as it came out, people were saying, ‘Ooh, it sounds like Harry Potter’. No, it’s Quantum of Solace. I was saying, ‘It’s a Bond title! The name of a Bond film is not about anything. Live And Let Die? Octopussy? What does it mean? It means very little.”

The whole thing reminded me again of this funny little video which pokes at the oddly named film: “The Suantum of Quolace. Did I get it mixed up?”
