The stakes are high in Casino Royale

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is currently preparing the release of the latest James Bond movie, Casino Royale for release on DVD, Blu-Ray Disc and for the PSP in March.

“Casino Royale” introduces James Bond before he holds his license to kill. But Bond is no less dangerous, and with two professional assassinations in quick succession, he is elevated to “00” status. “M” (Judi Dench), head of the British Secret Service, sends the newly-promoted 007 on his first mission that takes him to Madagascar, the Bahamas and eventually leads him to Montenegro to face Le Chiffre, a ruthless financier under threat from his terrorist clientele, who is attempting to restore his funds in a high-stakes poker game at the Casino Royale. “M” places Bond under the watchful eye of the Treasury official Vesper Lynd. At first skeptical of what value Vesper can provide, Bond’s interest in her deepens as they brave danger together. Le Chiffre’s cunning and cruelty come to bear on them both in a way Bond could never imagine, and he learns his most important lesson: Trust no one.

The 2-disc DVD set will offer up the film in an anamorphic widescreen transfer with over 90 minutes of extras such as the Documentaries “Becoming Bond” and ”James Bond: For Real.” Also included is a new Featurette called “Bond Girls Are Forever” as well as the Chris Cornell Music Video.

The Blu-Ray Disc version of the film will feature a 1080p transfer of the movie, including the same bonus materials, while the UMD version for PSP will contain only the feature film without any extras.

“Casino Royale” will come to stores on March 13 and carry a $28.96 price tag for the DVD and UMD versions and a $38.96 price tag for the Blu-Ray version.
