QUANTUM OF

SOLACE 2008


Daniel Craig’s second Bond film, Quantum Of Solace (2008), was filmed extensively on location. Consequently, the production and behind the scenes stills feature some gorgeous location photography of the principal cast in Austria, Chile, Italy, London and Panama City. Of all the worldly locations to feature in the Bond series perhaps one of the most distinctive is the Festspielhaus in Bregenz, Austria. Chosen by director Marc Forster, the setting is perfect for when Bond infiltrates a meeting of the criminal organisation Quantum. There are some publicity stills of the main cast and director Forster promoting the film at the Austrian location as well as some lesser seen behind the scenes images and productions stills. Another perfect location was the ESO Paranal Observatory, Cerro Paranal in the Atacarma Desert, Chile. This doubled as the Perla de las Dunas hotel in the film, and looks spectacular in the desert sun as Bond and Camille (Olga Kurylenko) quietly approach to complete their respective objectives. Worth a mention too are the stills of the deleted scene featuring Daniel Craig and Jesper Christensen (as Mr White), which was intended to close the film. It was hinted that Craig spoke the immortal line ‘Bond, James Bond’, but the scene was ultimately removed and Mr White later reappeared in SPECTRE (2015). Stills photographers credited as Karen Ballard and Susie Allnut (second unit). Additional stills by Roy Morris and Greg Williams.
