MUMBAI: The 21st movie in the James Bond saga features actor Daniel Craig as the British secret agent Casino Royale is schedule to premier on 16 November in the United Kingdom and in the United States and Canada on 17 November.
The Internet’s gaming portal, 777.com (http://www.777.com) is dedicating the movie’s premier week to James Bond and Casino Royale. The gambling guide has published an article on the new movie and news items with latest updates.
777.com also plans to pit Casino Royale against other famous movies for the title of “best gambling-related movie of all-time” in their next gambling poll, which will be released next week.
The article, “Casino Royale ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ The New James Bond Film“ (http://www.777.com/articles/casino-royale-new-james-bond-film), explores the story of 007’s first mission, as depicted in Ian Fleming’s first novel (which was adapted to modern times in the new film) and the major role that Texas Holdem poker plays in the movie – the main confrontation between the British agent and his nemesis takes place within the confines of a poker game.
777.com marketing director Amy Gomez says, “The gambling guide decided to focus on Casino Royale since James Bond has been an icon for gamblers for many years. James Bond has been a role model for the gambling community for more than four decades. Every gambler who sits at a table wants to posses the famous 007 coolness and at the same time prays that he wouldn’t have to play against someone like Bond.”
