“Quantum of Solace,” starring Daniel Craig, has had the biggest opening of any James Bond film, Variety is reporting, to the tune of $70 million.

It did it without the signature line “Bond, James Bond.”


It did it without the signature martini “shaken, not stirred.”

It did it without fancy gadgets and gizmos, without an outrageous supervillain, without a ridiculous opening sequence, without a daring escape from an overcomplicated death trap.

James, we hardly recognized ye.
