Casino Royale is a British-American spy film that is part of the James Bond franchise. It was produced by MGM and Columbia Pictures. The movie was released on November 17, 2006. Due to the movie targeting a PG-13 rating in the United States, a 12 rating in Germany and a 12a rating in the UK it was censored. The violence was toned down in order to get these ratings.
