'Casino Royale' Premieres in China

Daniel Craig and girlfriend producer Satsuki Mitchell are out and about in Beijing, China today for the premiere of his 007 film Casino Royale. Craig was excited to be in China saying, “It’s been an ambition of mine to get here, and I wish I had more time.”

Casino Royale director Martin Campbell (pictured below) was disappointed Monday to find pirated DVDs of “Ling ling qi” — Chinese for 007 — on the streets of Beijing, hours before the film’s China premiere and called such fakes a huge problem for the industry.

Daniel Craig on copyright piracy: “It hasn’t premiered here yet, but I think it’s been seen here. Someone tried to sell me a copy last night. I was wearing a hat and glasses so they didn’t recognize me. I understand the reality of the situation and it saddens me, not just because of the effect it has on the movie industry but because going to the cinema is a great experience. You’re missing out by watching a bad copy of a DVD with no sound and bad picture quality. As far as I’m concerned cinema is a collective experience and you get 50 percent more by going to the cinema.”
