1. London Prepares for Casino Royale World Premiere

    By David Winter on 2006-11-13

    This afternoon I did a little reconnaissance run of Leicester Square, ready for tomorrow’s world premiere of the 21st James Bond film, Casino Royale. The CTBF, the organisers of the event, have taken over all three cinema’s in the square; The Odeon Leicester Square, The Odeon West End and The Empire.

    Checking out the progress they were making, I saw large posters were being put in place above the cinema’s. A large poster of Daniel Craig in four different poses, graces the Odeon Leicester Square with neon lights over the Casino Royale logo with the 007 gun logo.

    The Leicester Square gardens are also shut to the public now while they erect what appears to be two large stages. One with a Casino Royale logo backdrop that I assume the cast and crew will climb before the film shows.

    Tomorrow is set to be the most exciting day for Bond fans – finally, after four years we get to see what is in my opinion, one of the best Bond films ever.
