The Dish: No death, please

No death, please, we’re British Daniel Craig says he was instrumental in choosing the much-derided title “Quantum of Solace” for the Bond film due out in November, saying he didn’t want a grisly title. “Names were coming out, some ludicrous stuff … you know the sort of thing: ‘The Blood on Your Face,’” Craig said. “I knew I didn’t want ‘death,’ ‘die,’ ‘bleed’ or any of those other things in the title.” He added that Bond movie titles usually are meaningless, anyway. “Quantum of Solace,” incidentally, comes from the title of a short story by Bond creator Ian Fleming.
