'Quantum' a Bond sequel

Movie: "Quantum of Solace"

When: Opening Friday at local theaters

Cast: Daniel Craig, Olga Kurylenko, Judi Dench

Director: Marc Forster

The story: Out to avenge the death of "Casino Royale" love Vesper Lynd, Agent 007 finds himself on a collision course with a mysterious international cartel known as Quantum -- and a comely rival spy with her own murderous agenda.

The buzz: The "Quantum" action picks up an hour after the conclusion of 2006's "Casino Royale," making James Bond's 22nd onscreen adventure the first true sequel in the franchise's 46-year history. Even before 007 storms the North American box office Friday, however, he has already made a killing in his native Britain, smashing box-office records set by 2005's "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" for biggest Friday and three-day opening.
