    As reported by over the weekend, a three-disc collector’s edition of Daniel Craig’s debut James Bond film, Casino Royale, was given a French release date of 18 June 2008.

    The report also noted that the special features (which will make up the second and third discs of the set) would reportedly include an audio commentary with director Martin Campbell and the producers, a cut scenes montage, and much more.

    Now, the DVD Times website has posted it’s own update with a reported Region 1 (USA, Canada) release date of 3 June 2008. The special features list follows:
