- Queen comes face to face with her leading spy

Daniel Craig in Casino Royale. Sony Pictures Releasing. CASINO ROYALE © 2006 Danjaq, LLC and United Artists Corporation. All rights reservedJAMES BOND took the plaudits from his employer, Her Majesty the Queen, at the Royal premiere of Casino Royale in Leicester Square last night.

Played for the first time by Daniel Craig, in this film secret agent Bond has beefed up on the physicality and toned down the knowing-hamminess of some previous incarnations.

Early critical reaction has been hugely positive, with some calling this the best Bond film ever.

Thatís quite a turn-around from last year when the choice of Craig to replace the popular Pierce Brosnan was greeted with groans from many 007 aficionados.

Craig and the Queen were joined by other stars of the film including Dame Judy Dench, Eva Green and Caterina Murino plus a strong supporting cast of non-Bond celebrities like Paris Hilton, Sarah Harding from Girls Aloud and all three Sugarbabes.
