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 landed the coveted role of James Bond, after Producer Barbara Broccoli saw him in Layer Cake (2004).
Arrogance and self-awareness seldom go hand in hand.
When Bond lands in the Bahamas, the Royal Towers at the Atlantis Resort are visible in the background, placing him at the seaport on Paradise Island. However, when Bond is seen driving to his destination, The Ocean Club, which is also on Paradise Island, he is actually on the adjacent island, New Providence.
JAMES BOND WILL RETURN appears at the end of the credits
