PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Thriller
Armed with a license to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007, and must defeat a private banker to terrorists in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, Montenegro, but things are not what they seem.
Daniel Craig gained twenty pounds of muscle for the role by adhering to eating mostly proteins, minimizing his carbohydrates intake, trained five days a week, only doing cardio exercises on weekends.
You think I can't take my own advice?
James Bond: I think something is driving you - and I think I'll never find out what that is.
The poker game's first break is after 4 hours' play, and has a 1-hour gap. During the gap, Bond has his encounter with Le Chiffre's two business partners before returning to the game. He then returns to his room, presumably after another few hours of poker, and finds Vesper sitting in the shower, shaken after Bond's fight. Surely she wouldn't have been there for several hours.
The opening MGM and Columbia logos are in black & white to coincide with the pre-title sequence.
