Revisioning 007 is a lively collection of new essays on the reinvention of James Bond in the 2006 film Casino Royale, starring Daniel Craig in his first appearance as Agent 007. Treating Casino Royale as a case study in popular film culture and as a significant turning point in the 007 series, the book offers innovative readings of the film and its inte-rrelations with the Bond franchise, the culture industry and recent developments in cinema, society and world politics. Essay topics range from the analysis of 007's masochism, voyeurism and hyper-mobility, to the examination of the film's testicular torture scene, the links between international politics and high-stakes gambling and the changing role of the secret agent in a post-9/11 world order.

Chapters: Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, You Know My Name, List of James Bond henchmen in Casino Royale, Lake Como, Le Chiffre, Aston Martin DBS V12, Vesper Lynd, Supporting characters in Casino Royale, Mr. White, Solange Dimitrios, Grandhotel Pupp, Villa del Balbianello. Excerpt: Casino Royale (English pronunciation: ) is the twenty-first film in the James Bond film series and the first to star Daniel Craig as fictional MI6 agent James Bond. It was directed by Martin Campbell and written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and Paul Haggis. Casino Royale is set at the beginning of Bond's career as Agent 007, just as he is earning his licence to kill. After preventing a terrorist attack at Miami International Airport, Bond falls for Vesper Lynd, the treasury employee assigned to provide the money he needs to bankrupt terrorist financier Le Chiffre by beating him in a high-stakes poker game. The story arc continues in the following Bond film, Quantum of Solace (2008). Casino Royale restarts the franchise, establishing a new timeline and narrative framework not meant to precede or succeed any previous Bond film, although elements of the plot do run into the subsequent film, Quantum of Solace. This allowed the film to show a less experienced and more vulnerable Bond and therefore for the first time in the series the character of Miss Moneypenny does not appear. Casting the film involved a widespread search for a new actor to portray James Bond, and significant controversy surrounded Craig when he was selected to succeed Pierce Brosnan in October 2005. Location filming took place in the Czech Republic, The Bahamas, Italy and the United Kingdom with interior sets built at Pinewood Studios. Despite setting a part of the storyline in Montenegro, not a single scene was shot in this country. Casino Royale was produced by EON Productions for...

Excerpt: Casino Royale Casino Royale (2006) is the twenty-first film in the British James Bond series; it was directed by Martin Campbell and the first to star Daniel Craig as MI6 agent James Bond, as well as the first of the newly rebooted Bond timeline. Based on the 1953 novel of the same name by Ian Fleming, it was adapted by screenwriters Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, and Paul Haggis . It is the third screen adaptation of the Casino Royale novel, which was previously produced as a 1954 television episode and a 1967 satirical film. The film is set at the beginning of James Bond's career as Agent 007, just as he is earning his licence to kill . After preventing a terrorist attack at Miami International Airport, Bond falls for Vesper Lynd, the treasury agent assigned to provide the money he needs to foil a high-stakes poker tournament organised by Le Chiffre . The film's story arc continues in the 22nd James Bond film, Quantum of Solace . It became the highest grossing Bond film until the release of Quantum of Solace .

Just what inspired Ian Fleming's original James Bond novels? What exactly did they do to lay the foundations for the classic Bond films of the '60s-and how did the films break with the books? How did EON Productions manage to keep audiences coming back for decades? What really changed in the reboot-and what stayed the same? How do the later Bond novels of writers like John Gardner and William Boyd fit into the bigger picture? JAMES BOND'S EVOLUTION: FROM CASINO ROYALE TO SPECTRE looks at all these questions and more in a study not just of the novels or the films but both which traces the broader Bond phenomenon from its origins in post-World War II Britain to the present. In doing so it looks not just at where it all came from, but how the Bond films and books were transformed time and again to stay popular through six tumultuous decades of political and cultural change.
