Daniel Craig is the first actor to play James Bond who is younger than the series itself.

South Africa was originally scheduled as a filming location for the movie. A James Bond movie had never lensed in this country before. Scheduling difficulties and the inability to secure shooting locations in the southern hemisphere country meant that the location had to be scrapped.

When Bond is poisoned with digitalis during the poker game, he has a life-threatening ventricular tachycardia. However the monitors show only a moderate tachycardia (134 -136) which would not be an immediate threat. The heart rate should have been at least 180 - 200 for the scene to make sense (It is also hard to explain how the ECG trace could be obtained with only one lead, the other one being unplugged). Ventricular fibrillation would also have been a credible cause of near-death, but it is ruled out by the rhythmic ECG trace shown.

In Miami International Airport Carlos hits a switch that activates all the fire sprinklers. Normal fire sprinkler systems do not have a switch to activate the entire system, instead sprinklers are activated by the heat of the fire melting a glass trigger in the sprinkler head and only the ones in immediate area of the fire activate. If all the sprinklers activated at once the water pressure at each head would be significantly lower than if only one or two activated, impeding the suppression of the fire, and the water damage caused by a sprinkler would be over a large area instead of just the area of the fire. This is a common goof and is seen in many movies and TV shows.

Upon arrival at Casino Royale, Bond receives a package with keys to a new Aston Martin. When he sits in the car, he leaves the driver's door open as he checks out the hidden compartments where the defibrillator and gun are located. After he closes the last compartment, the driver's door is now closed when it was open a moment earlier. The door is open again upon Bond's exit from the car.

What is 'Casino Royale' about?
Newly promoted to 00 status, MI6 agent James Bond (Daniel Craig) discovers a plan masterminded by Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen), a known private banker to the world's terrorists, to short sell stock in Skyfleet, an about-to-be-unveiled prototype of the world's largest airliner, and then blow up the plane. When Bond stops the plane from being blown up and subsequently learns that Le Chiffre is planning to use his ill-gotten windfall in a high-stakes poker tournament at the Casino Royale in Montenegro, M (Judi Dench) arranges for Bond to play. Bond quickly finds that the stakes are not only for money but for his life.
Can Daniel Craig drive manual cars?
Yes, he holds a UK Driving Licence. "That story about the stick shift was ludicrous," adds Barbara Broccoli, who produces the Bond films with half brother Michael G. Wilson. "Everybody drives a stick in England. You have to be able to in order to get an unrestricted licence over there."
If this shows one of Bond's first missions as a 00 agent, then why is Leiter in the film?
Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright) is in the film because Bond first met him in Casino Royale (the novel). While it is true that in the film series Bond first meets Leiter (played by Jack Lord) in Dr. No, in the book series Leiter had already been on several missions with Bond, going as far as losing an arm and a leg in the novel Live and Let Die (1954), which was depicted in the film Licence to Kill (1989).
