Casino Royale Smashes Bond's UK Box Office Record

CASINO ROYALE has enjoyed the best opening weekend ever by a JAMES BOND movie in the UK, taking GBP13.4 million ($24 million) between Friday (17NOV06) and Sunday (19NOV06). The DANIEL CRAIG-starring thriller smashed the previous record of GBP9.1 million ($16.4 million) held by 2002's DIE ANOTHER DAY. Bond producers BARBARA BROCCOLI and MARTIN G WILSON thank the British public for backing Craig: “We are delighted the UK has had record-breaking results over the weekend for Casino Royale, and we are very grateful for the support and goodwill of the British public to the new film and most especially towards Daniel Craig." Casino Royale also enjoyed the third highest opening ever at the UK box office, beaten only by HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE and PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN'S CHEST.
