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.
Barbara Broccoli originally wanted George Clooney for the role of James Bond, and eventually met him to discuss about the part, but Clooney turned down the part, saying, "I'm American, and it wasn't right for James Bond, James Bond is English, and not American."
I knew it was too early to promote you.
James Bond: Well, I understand 00s have a very short life expectancy... so your mistake will be short-lived.
Towards the beginning of the film, when Bond jumps off the van into the embassy, the patch of ground he lands on is obviously a landing mat with leaves and turf covering it.
The opening MGM and Columbia logos are in black & white to coincide with the pre-title sequence.
