Since the first premiere all the way back in 1962 with the legendary Dr. No, a total of eight different actors have portrayed the handsome British spy on the big screen.
However, it wasn’t until the 2006 Bond film, Casino Royale, that the series really catapulted in terms of popularity. Daniel Craig made his first appearance as the famous character, and audiences were extremely receptive, selling out the box office in record numbers. Today it remains one of the top-grossing Bond pictures in history and it isn’t hard to see why. Between the gripping action scenes that leave viewers on the edge of their seats to the many visually stunning film locales, it may be the best edition of the series.

Casino Royale 2006 Movie Synopsis
Not unlike other films in the franchise, Casino Royale presents a difficult task for Bond to accomplish, as he experiences a host of challenges and various run-ins on his way to complete the mission. But Casino Royale is special in that it’s Daniel Craig’s first job, and it isn’t an easy one. The spy is tasked with taking down notorious banker and skilled poker genius Le Chiffre, eliminating potential future danger for citizens.
Once word gets out that the evil character plans to finance another one of his dangerous schemes with the money gained in a high-stakes game of poker, the wise agent decides he will play against Le Chiffre in order to hault the flow of deviant funds. Equipped with a license to kill and his own set of masterful strategic knowledge, Bond demonstrates his elite mathematical acumen and ultimately wins over $120 million in one of the best, most stylish poker scenes in mainstream movie history. His evil opponent is left stunned and utterly defeated, forced to retreat under the mighty hand of none other than Bond, James Bond.
Each of the film’s scenes are engrossing and extremely entertaining, as Craig manages to perfectly capture the iconic character even for the very first time. Since this premier, the actor has played the spy in over five other productions with a highly anticipated new release, No Time to Die, set to hit theatres as soon as September of this year. The film will feature Craig on an entirely fresh secret mission to rescue a scientist that has been recently kidnapped by an unknown villain. One thing’s for certain: the star has undoubtedly secured his place as the confident face of 007.
