Casino Royale.

After Die Another Day, the Bond franchise found itself in an interesting place, the movie had become the highest grossing Bond movie ever, yet it had left Bond occupying a fantasy world more that the real one. The decision was made to bring Bond back to his roots and make Casino Royale, now that it's rights had finally been secured.

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by John Champion of Mission Log Podcast and Norman Lao to talk about Casino Royale. We discuss grounding Bond, the legitimacy of reboots and origin stories, the blonde Bond, Bond's history, a Bond-ing, when Bond strikes, feeling the Bond, Le Chiffre and our final thoughts and ratings.
