The much-anticipated James Bond film Quantum of Solace, featuring Britain's Daniel
The much-anticipated James Bond film Quantum of Solace, featuring Britain's Daniel Craig as the world's most famous spy, opened in movie theaters across Russia on Thursday.

Quantum of Solace, which made $38.6 million over the weekend despite only playing in three European countries, is the 22nd Bond film and the second outing for Craig as 007. It picks up where the previous film, Casino Royale, left off.

In the action-packed sequel Bond battles environmentalists to stop them taking over Bolivia's water supply while trying to exact revenge for the death of Vesper Lynd, the woman he loved, aided by new Bond-girl Olga Kurylenko.

The film, however, has caused a stir in Russia with communist groups attacking Ukrainian-born Kurylenko for appearing in a movie about the "enemy of the Soviet people."

An open letter from the St. Petersburg-based KPLO to the 28-year-old actress and model, who plays Camille Montes in the film, reads: "The Soviet Union educated you, cared for you, and brought you up for free, but no one suspected that you would commit this act of intellectual and moral betrayal." The group goes on to call James Bond "the killer of hundreds of Soviet people and their allies."

Kurylenko was born in Ukraine's Sea of Azov region and was discovered by a talent scout in the Moscow subway when she was still a teenager. She can also be seen in movie theaters in the role of Natasha in the film Max Payne, which is currently playing in Russia.
