Quantam of Solace

James Bond star Daniel Craig has greeted hundreds of excited fans at the Australian premiere in Sydney of the new Bond film Quantam of Solace, accompanied by his stunning co-star Olga Kurylenko.
Craig says he would love to film a 007 movie in Australia.
Bond spends much of his time visiting exotic locations and Craig says he would love it if Australia was included in a future film.
A host of Australian stars turned out for the premiere including Rove McManus, Megan Gale, Andy Lee, Ruby Rose, Jason Dundas and Nash Edgerton.
Quantum Of Solace is the 22nd Bond movie, with Craig returning for a second appearance as 007 following Casino Royale. It opens nationally on November 19.
