Quantum Of Solace To Be Shortest Bond Movie Ever


The run time of Quantum of Solace was today confirmed by IGN and Cinematical as 106 minutes, making it the shortest James Bond movie ever.

Director Marc Forster has been adamant from the movie’s early stages of production that Solace would clock in at under two hours, the first Bond pic since 1997’s Tomorrow Never Dies to do so.

Quantum of Solace is a direct sequel to Casino Royale, the longest Bond film in the series, with a runtime of nearly two-and-a-half hours.

Marc Forster told Cinematical, “…you know, like in the middle of Casino [Royale] they had a very long card game which, which was, was … and in this movie it’s shorter and doesn’t have that type of card game where you sort of reflect more because the story didn’t require it. So the movie is, you know, a little over an hour and forty minutes, so it’s much of a more compact emotional intense journey than Casino, which, I think, had more reflective moments maybe.

You know, I already had qualms about this movie being directed by Marc Foster. Now, it's revealed that it has a running time of 104-106 minutes . . . with more action than "CASINO ROYALE".

Are Foster, Broccoli and Wilson trying to re-create the style of the "BOURNE" movies? I hope not.

With longer credits than the 60's movies I have to admit I am a little worried about this length. Not panicked worried just a little.
