Color: Black and White opening sequence Color. Edit page. Clear your history. Jimmy has already captured The Detainer, and he tries to persuade her to be his partner; she agrees, but only to dupe him into swallowing one of his atomic time pills, turning him into a walking atomic bomb.
Sir James, Moneypenny, Mata and Coop manage to escape from their cell and fight their way back to the casino director's office where Sir James establishes Lynd is a double agent.
The casino is then overrun by secret agents and a battle ensues. American and French support arrive, but just add to the chaos.
Jimmy counts down a series of hiccups, each bringing him closer to doom. Eventually the atomic pill explodes, destroying Casino Royale with everyone inside.
Sir James and all of his agents then appear in heaven, and Jimmy Bond is shown descending to hell. Major stars , such as George Raft and Jean-Paul Belmondo , were given top billing in the film's promotion and screen trailers despite the fact that they only appeared for a few minutes in the final scene.
Casino Royale also takes credit for the greatest number of actors in a Bond film either to have appeared or to go on to appear in the rest of the Eon series — besides Ursula Andress in Dr.
No , Vladek Sheybal appeared as Kronsteen in From Russia with Love , Burt Kwouk featured as Mr. Ling in Goldfinger and an unnamed SPECTRE operative in You Only Live Twice , Jeanne Roland plays a masseuse in You Only Live Twice , and Angela Scoular appeared as Ruby Bartlett in On Her Majesty's Secret Service.
Jack Gwillim , who had a tiny role as a British Army officer, played a Royal Navy officer in Thunderball. Caroline Munro , who can be seen very briefly as one of Dr Noah's gun-toting guards, received the role of Naomi in The Spy Who Loved Me.
Milton Reid , who appears in a bit part as the temple guard, opening the door to Mata Bond's hall, played one of Dr.
No's guards and Stromberg's underling, Sandor, in The Spy Who Loved Me. John Hollis , who plays the temple priest in Mata Bond's hall, went on to play the unnamed figure clearly intended [ original research?
John Wells , Q's assistant, appeared in For Your Eyes Only as Denis Thatcher. Hal Galili , who appears briefly as a US Army officer at the auction, had earlier played gangster Jack Strap in Goldfinger.
Well-established stars like Peter O'Toole and sporting legends like Stirling Moss took uncredited parts in the film just to be able to work with the other members of the cast.
Stunt director Richard Talmadge employed Geraldine Chaplin to appear in a brief Keystone Cops insert. The film also proved to be young Anjelica Huston 's first experience in the film industry as she was called upon by her father, John Huston , to cover the screen shots of Deborah Kerr 's hands.
John Le Mesurier features in the early scenes of the film as M's driver. According to Semple, Ratoff considered the project needed Bond to be female and wished to cast Susan Hayward as 'Jane' Bond.
Feldman had represented Ratoff and bought the film rights for Casino Royale from his widow. Broccoli , who had held an interest in adapting James Bond for some years, offered to purchase the Casino Royale rights from Feldman, but he declined.
They eventually decided not to proceed after they saw the film Dr. No , the first Bond adaptation made by Broccoli and his partner Harry Saltzman through their company Eon Productions.
The attempt at a co-production eventually fell through as Feldman frequently argued with Broccoli and Saltzman, especially regarding the profit divisions and when the Casino Royale adaptation would start production.
Feldman approached Sean Connery to play Bond, but rejected Connery's offer to do the film for one million dollars. Given Eon's series led to spy films being in vogue at the time, Feldman opted to make his film a spoof of the Bond series instead of a straightforward adaptation.
Ben Hecht's contribution to the project, if not the final result, was in fact substantial and he wrote several complete drafts. Time magazine reported in May that Hecht had "three bashes" at completing a script, while his papers contain material from four surviving screenplays by Hecht.
A draft from discovered in Hecht's papers — but which does not identify the screenwriter — is a direct adaptation of the novel, albeit with the Bond character absent, instead being replaced by a poker-playing American gangster.
Later drafts see vice made central to the plot, with the Le Chiffre character becoming head of a network of brothels as he is in the novel whose patrons are then blackmailed by Le Chiffre to fund Spectre an invention of the screenwriter.
The racy plot elements opened up by this change of background include a chase scene through Hamburg 's red light district that results in Bond escaping disguised as a female mud wrestler.
New characters appear such as Lili Wing, a brothel madam and former lover of Bond whose ultimate fate is to be crushed in the back of a garbage truck, and Gita, wife of Le Chiffre.
The beautiful Gita, whose face and throat are hideously disfigured as a result of Bond using her as a shield during a gunfight in the same sequence which sees Wing meet her fate, goes on to become the prime protagonist in the torture scene that features in the book, a role originally Le Chiffre's.
Virtually nothing from Hecht's scripts was ever filmed, although a draft dated to February has a line of dialogue containing the idea of MI6 having given multiple agents the name of James Bond after Bond has died to confuse the other side.
Time reported in that the script had been completely re-written by Billy Wilder , and by the time the film reached production only the idea that the name James Bond should be given to a number of other agents remained.
This key plot device in the finished film, in the case of Hecht's version, occurs after the demise of the original James Bond an event which happened prior to the beginning of his story which, as Hecht's M puts it, "not only perpetuates his memory, but confuses the opposition.
In addition to the credited writers, Woody Allen, Peter Sellers, Val Guest , Ben Hecht , Joseph Heller , Terry Southern, and Billy Wilder are all believed to have contributed to the screenplay to varying degrees.
Feldman called it "a four ring circus". Peter Sellers hired Terry Southern to write his dialogue and not the rest of the script to "outshine" Orson Welles and Woody Allen.
Feldman originally intended to cast Terence Cooper as James Bond and had him under personal contract for two years prior to the movie being made. Feldman had worked with Peter Sellers on What's New Pussycat?
Sellers originally turned him down saying he felt the image of Bond was "too fixed". Feldman persuaded Sellers to change his mind by asking the actor to instead play a "little man" who plays James Bond.
Filming started 11 January The principal filming was carried out at Pinewood Studios , Shepperton Studios and Twickenham Studios in London.
Extensive sequences also featured London, notably Trafalgar Square and the exterior of 10 Downing Street. Mereworth Castle in Kent was used as the home of Sir James Bond, which is blown up at the start of the film.
Much of the filming for M's Scottish castle was actually done on location in County Meath , Ireland , with Killeen Castle as the focus.
Five different directors helming different segments of the film and with stunt co-ordinator Richard Talmadge co-directing the final sequence.
Feldman said that John Huston contributed 38 minutes in the final cut, Ken Hughes 25 minutes, Joseph McGrath 20 minutes, Robert Parrish 20 minutes, and Val Guest 26 minutes.
Huston's sequence involved Sir James Bond meeting the representatives of agencies. It was shot in Ireland and Kent in April Huston worked on his section of the script with Wolf Mankowitz.
Huston had written most of Beat the Devil on location but says "that was discipline compared to this. It was day to day then it's moment to moment here.
Huston says the film "was broached to me as a lark, which it was. Joseph McGrath shot for six weeks. Bob Parrish filmed the segment with Ursula Andress and Peter Sellers at Shepperton.
Ken Hughes was not known for comedies generally but had just directed the comedy Drop Dead Darling. Val Guest wrote and directed the last section and was given the responsibility of splicing the various "chapters" together.
He was offered the unique title of co-ordinating director but declined, claiming the chaotic plot would not reflect well on him if he were so credited.
His extra credit was labelled 'additional sequences' instead. Director credits: . Part of the behind-the-scenes drama of this film's production concerned the filming of the segments involving Peter Sellers.
Screenwriter Wolf Mankowitz declared that Sellers felt intimidated by Orson Welles to the extent that, except for a couple of shots, neither was in the studio simultaneously.
Other versions of the legend depict the drama stemming from Sellers being slighted, in favour of Welles, by Princess Margaret whom Sellers knew during her visit to the set.
Welles also insisted on performing magic tricks as Le Chiffre, and the director obliged. Director Val Guest wrote that Welles did not think much of Sellers, and had refused to work with "that amateur".
Director Joseph McGrath , a personal friend of Sellers, was punched by the actor when he complained about Sellers's behaviour on the set.
Some biographies of Sellers suggest that he took the role of Bond to heart, and was annoyed at the decision to make Casino Royale a comedy, as he wanted to play Bond straight.
This is illustrated in somewhat fictionalised form in the film The Life and Death of Peter Sellers , based on the biography by Roger Lewis , who has claimed that Sellers kept re-writing and improvising scenes to make them play seriously.
This story is in agreement with the observation that the only parts of the film close to the book are the ones featuring Sellers and Welles. Jean-Paul Belmondo and George Raft received major billing , even though each actor appears only briefly.
Both appear during the climactic brawl at the end, Raft flipping his trademark coin and promptly shooting himself dead with a backward-firing pistol, while Belmondo appears wearing a fake moustache as the French Foreign Legion officer who requires an English phrase book to translate " merde!
At the Intercon science fiction convention held in Slough in , David Prowse commented on his part in this film, apparently his big-screen debut. He claimed that he was originally asked to play "Super Pooh", a giant Winnie-the-Pooh in a superhero costume who attacks Tremble during the Torture of The Mind sequence.
This idea, as with many others in the film's script, was rapidly dropped, and Prowse was re-cast as a Frankenstein -type monster for the closing scenes.
The final sequence was principally directed by former actor and stuntman Richard Talmadge. Sellers went absent for days or weeks at a time, refused to appear in his scenes with Welles  and left the production before all of his scenes had been shot.
The framing device of a beginning and ending with David Niven was created to salvage the material. Signs of missing footage from the Sellers segments are evident at various points.
Evelyn Tremble is not captured on camera; an outtake of Sellers entering a racing car was substituted. Out-takes of Sellers were also used for Tremble's dream sequence pretending to play the piano on Ursula Andress ' torso , in the finale — blowing out the candles while in highland dress — and at the end of the film when all the various "James Bond doubles" are together.
In the kidnap sequence, Tremble's death is also very abruptly inserted; it consists of pre-existing footage of Tremble being rescued by Vesper, followed by a later-filmed shot of her abruptly deciding to shoot him, followed by a freeze-frame over some of the previous footage of her surrounded by bodies noticeably a zoom-in on the previous shot.
As well as this, an entire sequence involving Tremble going to the front for the underground James Bond training school which turns out to be under Harrods , of which the training area was the lowest level was never shot, thus creating an abrupt cut from Vesper announcing that Tremble will be James Bond to Tremble exiting the lift into the training school.
Many sequences from the film were dropped, so that several actors never appeared in the final cut, including Ian Hendry as , the agent whose body is briefly seen being disposed of by Vesper , Mona Washbourne and Arthur Mullard.
For the music, Feldman decided to bring in Burt Bacharach , who had done the score for his previous production What's New Pussycat?
Bacharach worked over two years writing for Casino Royale , in the meantime composing the After the Fox score and being forced to decline participation in Luv.
Lyricist Hal David contributed with various songs, many of which appeared in just instrumental versions. The title theme was Alpert's second number one on the Easy Listening chart where it spent two weeks at the top in June and peaked at number 27 on the Billboard Hot The film features the song " The Look of Love " performed by Dusty Springfield.
It is played in the scene of Vesper Lynd recruiting Evelyn Tremble, seen through a man-size aquarium in a seductive walk.
It was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song. The song was a Top 10 radio hit at the KGB and KHJ radio stations.
It was heard again in the first Austin Powers film, which was to a degree inspired by Casino Royale. Bacharach would later rework two tracks of the score into songs: "Home James, Don't Spare the Horses" was re-arranged as "Bond Street", appearing on Bacharach's album Reach Out , and "Flying Saucer — First Stop Berlin", was reworked with vocals as "Let the Love Come Through" by orchestra leader and arranger Roland Shaw.
A clarinet melody would later be featured in a Cracker Jack peanut popcorn commercial. As an in-joke, a brief snippet of John Barry 's song " Born Free " is used in the film.
At the time, Barry was the main composer for the Eon Bond series, and said song had won an Academy Award over Bacharach's own " Alfie ".
The cover art was done by Robert McGinnis , based on the film poster. The soundtrack album became famous among audio purists for the excellence of its recording.
The film soundtrack has since been released by other companies in different configurations including complete score releases.
The highly regarded master tapes were damaged, however, during a s remastering [ citation needed ] so none of the subsequent re-releases is considered to be as fine as the original LP release.
However, during filming the project ran into several problems and the shoot ran months over schedule, with the costs also running well over. The problems postponed the launch until April Casino Royale had its world premiere in London's Odeon Leicester Square on 13 April , breaking many opening records in the theatre's history.
When M reveals the money was never deposited, Bond realizes Vesper has betrayed him. He follows her to a handoff of the money, where gunmen take her captive.
Bond shoots the building's flotation devices, causing the foundation to sink into the Grand Canal.
He kills the gunmen, but Vesper is imprisoned in an elevator plunging into the rising water. Seeing Bond wishes to rescue her, she locks the door, indicating he should save himself.
Bond is unable to free Vesper before she drowns. White escapes with the money. M informs Bond the organization behind Le Chiffre [N 1] threatened to kill Vesper's lover unless she became a double agent ; she likely made a deal later with White, trading the money for Bond's life.
Bond coldly renounces Vesper as a traitor, saying "the bitch is dead", and returns to service. Realizing Vesper left her phone to help him, he checks the contacts and locates Mr.
White at an estate in Lake Como. Shooting him in the leg, introduces himself: "The name's Bond. James Bond.
Casino Royale includes a cameo by British entrepreneur Richard Branson seen being frisked at Miami International Airport. The cameo was cut out of the in-flight versions shown on British Airways ' in-flight entertainment systems, and the Virgin Atlantic aircraft Branson supplied had its tail fin bearing the company logo obscured.
Casino Royale had been produced as a television episode starring Barry Nelson as Bond and Peter Lorre as the villain Le Chiffre, as well as a non-canonical ensemble satirical film starring David Niven , Peter Sellers and Woody Allen.
Eon Productions gained the rights to Casino Royale in after Sony Pictures Entertainment exchanged them for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer 's rights to Spider-Man.
He explained, "the draft that was there was very faithful to the book and there was a confession, so in the original draft, the character confessed and killed herself.
She then sent Bond to chase after the villains; Bond chased the villains into the house. I don't know why but I thought that Vesper had to be in the sinking house and Bond has to want to kill her and then try and save her.
Director Quentin Tarantino expressed interest in directing an adaptation of Casino Royale ,  but Eon was not interested.
He claims to have worked behind the scenes with the Fleming family, and believed this was the reason why filmmakers finally went ahead with Casino Royale.
In February , Martin Campbell , who previously directed GoldenEye , was announced as the film's director. Eon believed that it had relied too heavily on computer-generated imagery effects in the more recent films, particularly Die Another Day , and was keen to accomplish the stunts in Casino Royale "the old fashioned way".
Pierce Brosnan had signed a deal for four films when he was cast in the role of James Bond. This was fulfilled with the production of Die Another Day in Brosnan officially announced he was stepping down in February At one point, producer Michael G.
Wilson claimed over names were being considered for his replacement. In May , British actor Daniel Craig stated MGM and producers Michael G.
Wilson and Barbara Broccoli had assured him he would get the role of Bond, and Matthew Vaughn told reporters MGM offered him the opportunity to direct the new film, but Eon Productions at that point had not approached either of them.
Craig read all of Fleming's novels to prepare for the part, and cited Mossad and British Secret Service agents who served as advisors on the set of Munich as inspiring because, "Bond has just come out of the service and he's a killer.
There's a look. These guys walk into a room and very subtly they check the perimeters for an exit. That's the sort of thing I wanted.
On 14 October Eon Productions, Sony Pictures Entertainment, and MGM announced at a press conference in London that Craig would be the sixth actor to portray James Bond.
Throughout the entire production period, Internet campaigns such as "danielcraigisnotbond. The next important casting was that of the lead Bond girl , Vesper Lynd.
Principal photography for Casino Royale commenced on 3 January and concluded on 20 July The film was primarily shot at Barrandov Studios in Prague, with additional location shooting in the Bahamas, Italy and the United Kingdom.
The shoot concluded at Pinewood Studios. Wilson had stated Casino Royale would either be filmed or take place in Prague and South Africa.
However, Eon Productions encountered problems in securing film locations in South Africa. In addition to the extensive location filming, studio work including choreography and stunt co-ordination practice was performed at the Barrandov Studios in Prague, and at Pinewood Studios, where the film used several stages, the paddock tank, and the Stage.
Further shooting in the UK was scheduled for Dunsfold Aerodrome in Surrey, the cricket pavilion at Eton College although that scene was cut from the completed movie , and the Millbrook Vehicle Proving Ground in Bedfordshire.
After Prague, the production moved to the Bahamas. Several locations around New Providence were used for filming during February and March, particularly on Paradise Island.
Footage set in Mbale , Uganda, was filmed at Black Park , a country park in Buckinghamshire , on 4 July Additional scenes took place at Albany House, an estate owned by golfers Ernie Els and Tiger Woods.
Karlovy Vary was used as the exterior of the Casino Royale,  with the Grandhotel Pupp serving as "Hotel Splendide". The main Italian location was Venice , where the majority of the film's ending is set.
The scene with Bond on a sailboat was filmed aboard a foot yacht named Spirit. She was constructed by Spirit Yachts in Suffolk, England , and had to be demasted to fit under various Venetian bridges to reach the filming location.
For this reason, SV Spirit "was the first sailing boat to go up the Grand Canal in Venice for years". Other scenes in the latter half of the film were shot in late May and early June at the Villa del Balbianello on the shores of Lake Como.
A recreation of the Body Worlds exhibit provided a setting for one scene in the film. Among the Body Worlds plastinates featured in that scene were the Poker Playing Trio which plays a key role in one scene and Rearing Horse and Rider.
The exhibition's developer and promoter, German anatomist Gunther von Hagens also has a cameo appearance in the film,  although only his trademark hat is actually visible on screen.
In designing the credit sequence for the film, graphic designer Daniel Kleinman was inspired by the cover of the British first edition of Casino Royale , which featured Ian Fleming's original design of a playing card bordered by eight red hearts dripping with blood.
Kleinman said, "The hearts not only represent cards but the tribulations of Bond's love story. So I took that as inspiration to use playing card graphics in different ways in the titles," like a club representing a puff of gun smoke, and slashed arteries spurting thousands of tiny hearts.
Kleinman decided not to use the female silhouettes commonly seen throughout the Bond title sequences, considering that the women did not fit with both the film's spirit and the storyline following Bond falling in love.
For the rest of the film, Chris Corbould , the special effects and miniature effects supervisor, returned to a more realistic style of film making and significantly reduced digital effects.
According to Corbould, "CGI is a great tool and can be very useful, but I will fight to the tooth and nail to do something for real. It's the best way to go".
The first scenes shot were ones involving a Madagascar building site, shot in the Bahamas on the site of a derelict hotel with which Michael G.
Wilson had become acquainted in during the filming of The Spy Who Loved Me. The stunt team built a model and put forward several ways in which the digger could conceivably take out the concrete, including taking out the pillar underneath.
A section of the concrete wall was removed to fit the digger and reinforced with steel. The sequence at Miami International Airport was partly shot at the Dunsfold Aerodrome , in Surrey, which is known from British car show Top Gear , with some footage from the Prague and Miami airports.
The Skyfleet S aircraft in the film was an ex- British Airways B G-BDXJ , which had its engines removed and was modified for its appearance in the film.
The modified aircraft had the outboard engines replaced by external fuel tanks, while the inboard engines were replaced by a mock-up pair of engines on each inboard pylon.
The cockpit profile was altered to make the look like a prototype of an advanced airliner. The sinking of the Venetian house at the climax of the film featured the largest rig ever built for a Bond film,  with tank consisting of a Venetian piazza and the interior of an abandoned house being constructed.
The rig, weighing some 90 tons, incorporated electronics with hydraulic valves that were closely controlled by computer because of the dynamic movement within the system on its two axes.
The same computer system also controlled the exterior model, which the effects team had built to one-third scale to film the building eventually collapsing into the Venetian canal.
The model elevator within the rig could be immersed in 19 feet 5. At the time of filming, Aston Martin was still in the final phases of designing the DBS.
Also a white prototype DB9 manual was supplied to the film crew so that the stunt drivers had something to practice with.
The soundtrack of Casino Royale , released by Sony Classical Records on 14 November , featured music composed by veteran composer David Arnold , his fourth soundtrack for the Bond film series, while Nicholas Dodd orchestrated and conducted the score.
Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli announced on 26 July Chris Cornell had composed and would perform the title song, " You Know My Name ".
The classic theme only plays during the end credits to signal the climax of his character arc. Casino Royale premiered at the Odeon Leicester Square , the Odeon West End and the Empire simultaneously in London on 14 November Along with the cast and crew, numerous celebrities and 5, paying guests were also in attendance with half the proceeds benefiting the CTBF.
Only two days following the premiere, unlicensed copies appeared for sale in London. Craig himself was offered such a DVD while walking anonymously through the streets of Beijing wearing a hat and glasses to avoid being identified.
In January , Casino Royale became the first Bond film ever to be shown in mainland Chinese cinemas. The Chinese version was edited before release, with the reference to the Cold War re-dubbed and new dialogue added during the poker scene explaining the process of Texas hold 'em , as the game is less familiar in China this addition is reminiscent of dialogue that was added to the American TV adaptation to explain the rules of baccarat , the game featured in the original book.
After critics dubbed Die Another Day "Buy Another Day" because of around 20 product placement deals, Eon limited their promotions for Casino Royale.
Partners included Ford , Heineken which Eva Green starred in adverts for , Smirnoff , Omega SA , Virgin Atlantic and Sony Ericsson.
Casino Royale was simultaneously released on DVD, UMD and Blu-ray Disc on 16 March The UK DVD has continued to sell well, with 1,, copies sold since 19 March.
A three-disc edition of Casino Royale on DVD was released in the United Kingdom on 31 October , coinciding with the cinema release of the sequel, Quantum of Solace the following week in the United States.
As well as features present from the release, the collector's edition contains an audio commentary , deleted scenes, featurettes and a storyboard-to-film comparison.
Casino Royale was released a third time on Blu-ray in with DTS audio and deleted scenes, but with fewer special features than the edition.
Casino Royale was censored for its release in Britain, the United States, Germany and China. In Britain, by omitting some of Le Chiffre's sadism and James Bond's reactions in the torture scene, the film received the desired BBFC 12A rating.
The German edit of the film cuts a sequence where the bomb-planter at the airport breaks a man's neck, instead replacing it with an alternative take.
The fully uncensored version can be found on the Australian, Dutch, French, Hong Kong, Japanese, and Scandinavian Blu-ray and DVD releases, on UK Blu-ray releases from onwards rated 15 , and on the 4K UHD Blu-ray release branded as an unrated "extended" cut.
Casino Royale was the 4th highest-grossing film of , and was the highest-grossing installment of the James Bond series until Skyfall surpassed it in November The site's critical consensus reads, " Casino Royale disposes of the silliness and gadgetry that plagued recent James Bond outings, and Daniel Craig delivers what fans and critics have been waiting for: a caustic, haunted, intense reinvention of Craig's performance and credibility were particularly praised.
During production, Craig had been subject to debate by the media and the public, as he did not appear to fit Ian Fleming's original portrait of the character as tall, dark and suave.
The Times compared Craig's portrayal of the character to that of Timothy Dalton , and praised the action as "edgy",  with another reviewer citing in particular the action sequence involving the cranes in Madagascar.
The film was similarly well received in North America. MSNBC gave the movie a perfect 5 star rating. Roger Ebert gave the film a four out of four star rating, and wrote that "Craig makes a superb Bond This is a screwed-up Bond, a rogue Bond, a bounder, a scrapper and, in the movie's astoundingly bleak coda, an openhearted lover.
Vicky Allan of the Sunday Herald noted Bond himself, and not his love interests, was sexually objectified in this film.
A moment where he rises from the sea is reminiscent of Ursula Andress in Dr. No ; he feels "skewered" by Vesper Lynd's criticism of him; "and though it would be almost unthinkable now have a female character in a mainstream film stripped naked and threatened with genital mutilation, that is exactly what happens to Bond in [the film].
Furthermore, I consider Daniel Craig to be the most effective and appealing of the six actors who have played , and that includes even Sean Connery.
Roger Moore wrote, "Daniel Craig impressed me so greatly in his debut outing, Casino Royale , by introducing a more gritty, unrefined edge to the character that I thought Sean [Connery] might just have to move over.
Craig's interpretation was like nothing we'd seen on screen before; Jimmy Bond was earning his stripes and making mistakes.
It was intriguing to see him being castigated by M, just like a naughty schoolboy would be by his headmaster.
The script showed him as a vulnerable, troubled, and flawed character. Quite the opposite to my Bond! Craig was, and is, very much the Bond Ian Fleming had described in the books — a ruthless killing machine.
It was a Bond that the public wanted. The film met with mixed reactions from other critics. John Beifuss of The Commercial Appeal said, "Who wants to see Bond learn a lesson about ego, as if he were Greg Brady in his 'Johnny Bravo' phase?
Though American radio personality Michael Medved gave the film three stars out of four, describing it as "intriguing, audacious and very original In December , Casino Royale was named the best film of the year by viewers of Film The film appeared on many critics' top ten lists of the best films of At the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards, Casino Royale won the Film Award for Best Sound Chris Munro, Eddy Joseph, Mike Prestwood Smith, Martin Cantwell, Mark Taylor , and the Orange Rising Star Award , which was won by Eva Green.
This made Craig the first actor ever to receive a BAFTA nomination for a performance as James Bond. Casino Royale won the Excellence in Production Design Award from the Art Directors Guild ,  and singer Chris Cornell's "You Know My Name" won the International Press Academy Satellite Award for Best Original Song.
