About Casino Royale (1967 film) in brief
Casino Royale is a 1967 British-American spy parody film originally produced by Columbia Pictures. It is loosely based on Ian Fleming’s first James Bond novel. The film stars David Niven as the \”original\” Bond, Sir James Bond 007. Bond is forced out of retirement to investigate the deaths and disappearances of international spies. He soon battles the mysterious Dr. Noah and SMERSH. Casino Royale was released on 13 April 1967, two months prior to Eon’s fifth Bond movie, You Only Live Twice. It was a financial success, grossing over USD 41. 7 million worldwide, and Burt Bacharach’s musical score was praised, earning him an Oscar nomination for the song \”The Look of Love\”. Critical reception to Casino Royale, however, was generally negative, with many reviewers regarding it as a baffling, disorganised affair. Since 1999, the film’s rights have been held by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, distributors of the official Bond films by Eon Productions. The only remaining option is to raise the money by playing baccarat by playing the only remaining Bond agent, Evelyn Tremble, in a live-action version of the film, which would have been released in 1968. It has been released on Blu-ray and DVD in the UK and the U.S. for the first time in the last few years of the 20th century, but not in Australia or New Zealand. The UK release date for Casino Royale has been pushed back to the last week of April. The US release date has been moved to the second week of May.
It will be released in the United States on the last day of June, and in Australia on the first week of July. The British release date is the first day of July, and the American release date will be the third week of August, and it will be shown in Australia and New Zealand on the fourth week of September, and then in Europe on the fifth week of October, and so on in Europe and the Middle East on the sixth week of November, and finally in North America on the seventh week of January, and elsewhere in the world on the 18th and 19th September. The U.K. release date was pushed back by one week to the 16th September, so that the film can be released on the 17th and 18th October, respectively. The American release dates are the 19th and 20th respectively, and they will be on the same day as the UK release of You Only live Twice, which was released the following week. The original film was released in 1960, but Columbia Pictures had acquired the film rights in 1960 and had attempted to get Casino Royale made as an Eon Bond film. The producers of the Eon series, Albert R. Broccoli and Harry Saltzman, failed to come to terms. Charles K. Feldman resolved to produce the film as a satire. Bond’s secretary Miss Moneypenny, Vesper Lynd, Bond’s daughter by Mata Hari, Mata Bond and British agents Coop and The Detainer are also involved.
