Synopsis

Casino Royale introduces JAMES BOND before he holds his license to kill. But Bond is no less dangerous, and with two professional assassinations in quick succession, he is elevated to "00" status Bond's first 007 mission takes him to Madagascar where he is to spy on a terrorist, MOLLAKA (Sebastien Foucan). Not everything goes to plan and Bond decides to investigate, independently of MI6, in order to track down the rest of the terrorist cell. Following a lead to the Bahamas, he encounters DIMITRIOS (Simon Abkarian) and his girlfriend, SOLANGE (Caterina Murino). He learns that Dimitrios is involved with LE CHIFFRE (Mads Mikkelsen), banker to the world's terrorist organizations.

Secret Service intelligence reveals that Le Chiffre is planning to raise money in a high-stakes poker game in Montenegro at Le Casino royale. MI6 assigns 007 to play against him, knowing that is Le Chiffre loses, it will destroy his organisation.

M (Judi Dench) places Bond under the watchful eye of the beguiling VESPER LUND (Eva Green). At first skeptical of what value Vesper can provide, Bond's interest in her deepens as they brave danger together and even torture at the hands of Le Chiffre.

In Montenegro, Bond allies himself with MATHIS (Giancarlo Giannini) MI6's local field agent, and FELIX LEITER (Jeffrey Wright) who is representing the interests of the CIA. The marathon game proceeds with dirty tricks and violence, raising the stakes beyond blood money and reaching a terrifying climax.

The Numbers' Movie Spotlight - Casino Royale

Bond, James Bond.

Those three words are arguably the most famous ever uttered on film, and along with the iconic theme song are all that are needed to convince millions of people worldwide to go to the movies. However, this time around there are some issues that complicate matters, the most important being a new actor taking over the role.

Daniel Craig's first outing as the super spy will be obsessively followed by the franchise's legion of fans. We'll take a look at the box office performance of the "James Bond Transition Movies," and review the history of actors playing the world's most famous secret agent.
