Is there solace in revenge? Bond and "M" sniff a shadowy international network of power and corruption reaping billions. As Bond pursues the agents of an assassination attempt on "M," all roads lead to Dominic Greene, a world-renowned developer of green technology. Greene, a nasty piece of work, is intent on securing a barren area of Bolivia in exchange for assisting a strongman stage a coup there. The CIA looks the other way, and only Bond, with help from a retired spy and from a mysterious beauty, stands in Greene's way. "M" wonders if she can trust Bond, or if vengeance possesses him. Beyond that, can anyone drawn to Bond live to tell the tale?

Sir Paul McCartney
turned down the offer to write a new James Bond song for the film, and recommended singer-songwriter Amy Winehouse
for the job. Winehouse recorded a demo with Music Producer Mark Ronson
. The demo was not used for reasons linked to Winehouse's inability to record music at a time due to her well publicized personal situation. See more
M tells Bond that a DNA analysis has been done on a lock of hair. Strictly speaking, locks of hair are cut off and do not contain the hair follicle which is preferable for DNA analysis. However, it is possible to get DNA from hair samples that lack roots, although it takes more time and effort. It is likely that the case was given priority to facilitate the effort. See more
