    Casino Royale Collector’s Edition

    'Casino Royale'

    Overview

    CommanderBond.net exclusively reported back in August 2007 that a three-disc special edition of Casino Royale was in the works, planned for release around the time Quantum of Solace (then titled Bond 22) hit theatres in October/November 2008.

    This Casino Royale Collector’s Edition will improve greatly on the original two-disc release with more than seven hours of special features including audio commentaries (compared to 90 minutes on the original).

    Plot Synopsis

    'Casino Royale'

    Casino Royale

    Casino Royale introduces James Bond before he holds his license to kill. But Bond is no less dangerous, and with two professional assassinations in quick succession, he is elevated to “00” status. “M” (Judi Dench), head of the British Secret Service, sends the newly-promoted 007 on his first mission that takes him to Madagascar, the Bahamas and eventually leads him to Montenegro to face Le Chiffre, a ruthless financier under threat from his terrorist clientele, who is attempting to restore his funds in a high-stakes poker game at the Casino Royale. “M” places Bond under the watchful eye of the Treasury official Vesper Lynd. At first skeptical of what value Vesper can provide, Bond’s interest in her deepens as they brave danger together. Le Chiffre’s cunning and cruelty come to bear on them both in a way Bond could never imagine, and he learns his most important lesson: Trust no one.

In order to bring down the terrorist network, Bond must beat Le Chiffre in a high-stakes poker game at Casino Royale. Bond teams with a beautiful treasury official, Vesper Lynd (Green), as he risks millions of Her Majesty’s money, all too aware that should he lose, the funds will strengthen and embolden the very terrorists they hope to stop. As Bond and Vesper survive a series of nearly lethal attacks by Le Chiffre and his henchmen, a mutual affection develops, leading Bond to a terrifying confrontation with his own mortality. As Bond becomes closer to Vesper, he questions his desire to remain a secret agent, leading to a heart-stopping conclusion unlike any Bond film before.
