Casino Royale
Daniel Craig and Judi Dench in Casino Royale opening this weekend.

FirstShowing Weekend Suggestion: Casino Royale. Indefinitely the new James Bond himself must be seen in full valor on screen - one of the best Bonds in the last 30 years. However, Happy Feet is a great fun family film as well.
