    Daniel Craig’s debut 007 film, Casino Royale, will be making it’s premiere on Sky Movies 2 HD in the UK on Christmas day.

    Tech Digest reports that the James Bond film will be presented in all it’s high definition glory–and uninterrupted–as it follows the Queen’s speech (which will be marking the 50th anniversary on television) at 3:10 PM on Christmas day afternoon.

    We are excited to be able to broadcast two of the most popular Christmas Day TV highlights in a way the British public has never seen before,’ said Sky Movies chief Ian Lewis.

    ‘Over the years, the Queen’s speech has become a Christmas institution that not only looks back on the previous 12 months but also forward to the future. As Britain is shaping the future of television with millions of HD-ready television sets already in British homes, we felt that it would be appropriate to celebrate Her Majesty’s 50th Christmas Message by broadcasting it in high definition.’
