Tradecraft: Quantum Of Blogging

All the trade blogs have something to say about Quantum of Solace these days.

Steven Zeitchik of the Hollywood Reporter's Risky Biz Blog examines the movie from an interesting environmental aspect. Does the new Bond film point the direction toward the next generation of action movie villainy?

Nikki Finke at Deadline Hollywood seems to have a new story everyday about the anticipation factor for Daniel Craig's second 007 outing. Earlier this week she reported that with three weeks still to go (now two), Sony's own tracking indicated that Quantum of Solace had double the "wannasee" factor going for it than Casino Royale did. Could be be looking at a Bourne Supremacy or even The Dark Knight scenario of a sequel vastly outgrossing its predecessor? I hope so! And I'm sure Sony does too, because the same story goes on to reveal that some rival studios are pinning the new Bond movie as the priciest film of all time, dollars-per-minute.

Today Nikki adds that Quantum is currently leading MovieTickets.com's online advance ticket sales, ahead of heavy hitters like High School Musical 3 and Twilight!
