    By Devin Zydel on 2007-01-29

    CBn earlier reported today that the premiere of Casino Royale has taken place in Beijing, China. The BBC has released a video report covering the event, including a brief interview with Daniel Craig.

    This is the first time a James Bond 007 film has been released in Chinese theaters, and Casino Royale managed to be approved with no cuts. A ‘good thing,’ said Craig, pleased that the film will be shown ‘in its entirety.’

    However, the many pirated DVD copies did not go unnoticed. ‘Someone tried to sell me a copy last night,’ said Craig. ‘I was wearing a hat and glasses so they didn’t recognise me. I understand the reality of the situation and it saddens me, not just because of the effect it has on the movie industry but because going to the cinema is a great experience.’

    ‘You’re missing out by watching a bad copy of a DVD with no sound and bad picture quality. As far as I’m concerned cinema is a collective experience and you get 50 percent more by going to the cinema.’
