Eon, which owns Bond rights, and Sony, which took over distribution in buying MGM, hoped Craig could broaden Bond's appeal across generations, gender and geography.

By Mark Hughes It has been billed as the Bond that will break with tradition. In Quantum of Solace Daniel Craig will not ask for his martini, "shaken, not stirred", and won't call himself "Bond, James Bond".

When the film is released at the end of next month, cinema-goers will see Bond drive his customised Aston Martin wearing his Omega watch and...

By Bob Shields I SEE the new 007 movie Quantum Of Solace will not include the phrase "The name's Bond, James Bond". The phrase has been used in all 21 Bond films to date and is part of movie legend.
