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.
In 1999, MGM paid Sony ten million dollars for the rights to this film.
Well, I'm gonna need the other five million to buy back in.
Vesper Lynd: I can't do that, James.
James Bond: Look, I made a mistake. I was impatient, maybe I was arrogant, but I can beat him.
Vesper Lynd: I'm sorry.
James Bond: "Sorry?" Sorry! Why don't you try putting that in a sentence, like ...

In order to create the Montenegro location for the poker game, (almost) all signs in front of restaurants and such have been altered to a perfect Montenegrin/Serbian language, with an appropriate mix of Latin and Cyrillic lettering. However, when Bond is sitting in the café with Mathis waiting for the arrest, an original sign, "Bilý Kun" , which is definitely Czech and not Montenegrin/Serbian, is clearly visible for a few seconds.
The opening MGM and Columbia logos are in black & white to coincide with the pre-title sequence.
