Thousands attend Casino Royale premiere
The first instalment featuring Daniel Craig as the eponymous super-spy, Casino Royale also stars Eva Green and Caterina Murino as exotically-named Bond girls Vesper Lynd and Solange.
"I was approached a year ago and I just loved the script," Green told Empire Online, while Murino said she was "so proud" to be in the movie.
Also attending the premiere were stars such as Elton John, Sharon Osbourne and Judi Dench, who returns once more to play the role of Bond's boss, M.
Premiered across three separate cinema screens, over 4,000 fans turned up to watch Craig in his first outing as the shaken-not-stirred hero.
"I just immersed myself in the role. I did as much work as I could, got to the centre of it and figured it out," he said.
The movie opens nationwide on Thursday 16th November.
