While having a short Bond is not necessarily a bad thing, 106 minutes does sound more like a running time for a cheap comedy than it does a blockbuster hit. So it goes for Quantum of Solace, which can now be considered the shortest Bond film to date.

Quantum of Solace Short

The good people at MI6 have learned from director Marc Forster that the 22nd James Bond film, Quantum of Solace, will arrive to theaters with the shortest running time of them all. While there is still plenty of time to, I don't know, add footage, the case is very unlikely. When it comes to the editing room, it is easier to cut than to add. I for one wouldn't mind an extended love making sequence that shows more lady er, suppleness than Bond steel; if you get my drift.

The film's short running time does come as a surprise considering that Casino Royale was the franchise's longest film with a runtime of 144 minutes. Maybe Columbia Pictures is hoping to get a few more screenings of the film per theater per day. More screenings usually equals more opportunity at extra money.

Since the trailer for the film comes in at over two-minutes and is action-packed, should we just assume the rest of the film is the same way? Sounds okay to me, but why not add a few easy minutes by extending the typical Bond opening sequence? Just a thought.

Quantum of Solace opens to theaters on November 7th.
