London (ANI): The new Bond film Quantum of Solace, which stars Daniel Craig, will be publicly screened at the London Film Festival. The flick will be screened at the Odeon West End on the 29th of October, the same night as the film's world premiere. Besides Craig, the 22nd Bond film stars Olga Kurylenko and Mathieu Amalric.
Penelope Cruz and Omar Sharif are expected to attend the festival. The two-minute taster contains excerpts from previously unseen action sequences and shows Daniel Craig's 007 and Dame Judi Dench's M discussing revenge. Kurylenko is also featured in the trailer, which introduces the film's French villain Dominic Greene (Amalric).
"It is the first time a new Bond movie has featured in the festival's line-up," BBC quoted artistic director Sandra Hebron, as saying. "It's great news for us," Hebron added.
The 52nd London Film Festival screening 189 features and 108 shorts is due to take place in the capital from 15 to 30 October.
