“CASINO ROYALE delivers exactly what you want in a Bond movie: stylish fun and thrills.”
-Leah Rozen/PEOPLE



- The High-Octane Blockbuster Comes To 2-Disc DVD,
Blu-ray Disc and PSP March 13 -

CULVER CITY, CALIF. (January 15, 2007) – The ultimate secret agent, James Bond “007,” brings audiences to the edge of their seats in the ultimate romantic action thriller Casino Royale. The rugged yet debonair Daniel Craig (Layer Cake, Munich) delivers an explosive performance and breathes gritty life into Ian Flemming’s notorious playboy, “007.” The adrenaline-filled Casino Royale takes audiences back to the mission that ignited the James Bond saga. The $500 million worldwide box office smash, and most successful Bond movie to date, arrives on 2-Disc DVD, Blu-ray Disc®, and on the Sony Playstation Portable (PSP) March 13 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

Director Martin Campbell (GoldenEye, The Legend of Zorro) brings this 21st century Bond adventure to life featuring Craig and stunning leading lady Eva Green (Kingdom of Heaven, The Dreamers). The impeccable pair exhibit explosive chemistry in the complex and multi-faceted adventure. Oscar® winner (Best Supporting Actress, Shakespeare in Love, 1998) and six-time Academy Award® nominee (Best Actress, Mrs. Brown, 1997; Best Supporting Actress, Shakespeare in Love, 1998; Best Supporting Actress, Chocolat, 2000; Best Actress, Iris, 2001; Best Actress, Mrs. Hendersen Presents, 2005; Best Actress, Notes on a Scandal, 2007), Judi Dench, once again returns as “M”, Bond’s steely superior at M16, the British Secret Service. Casino Royale features veteran actor, Mads Mikkelsen

(Exit, Prague), as the ice-cold henchman and banker to international terrorists, Le Chiffre, and introduces acclaimed Italian bombshell Caterina Murino in her American film debut. Casino Royale is full of exciting bonus features including a behind-the-scenes look at the action and stunts performed in the film as well as a featurette on the steamy history of the infamous Bond girls. The film will be available March 13 in a 2-disc DVD set for a SRP of $28.96, on Blu-ray Disc for a SRP of $38.96 and for PSP at a SRP of $28.95.

Casino Royale traces the early career of James Bond (Craig) as he is elevated to “00” status. “M” (Dench), head of the British Secret Service, sends Bond on his first “007” mission leading him to Le Chiffre (Mikkelsen), banker to the world’s terrorists. In order to stop him and bring down the terrorist network, Bond must beat Le Chiffre in a high-stakes poker game at Casino Royale. Bond is initially annoyed when a beautiful treasury official, Vesper Lynd (Green), is assigned to deliver his stakes for the game and watch over the government’s money. But as Bond and Vesper survive a series of nearly lethal attacks by Le Chiffre and his henchmen, a mutual affection develops, leading Bond to learn his most important lesson: trust no one.

I had every intention of I REALLY WANTED to see this in the theaters...but never got the opportunity.

This is a real bonus that it's getting a DVD release as early as March 13! Posted Image

I loved this film. The extras seem a little on the light side, though. Should we expect a double dip when Bond 22 comes out?

40 bucks for Blue Ray? Not to put it bluntly, but are they out of their F'in minds? That kind of pricing went out with Laserdisc!

No wonder the format aint taking off like a rocket.

List prices are list prices. And yes, this one is high. But in the real word my order for the Casino Royale Blu-ray Disc from amazon is $24.52. While under $20 would be nice, $25 for a great movie in high definition on BD ain't bad at all.
