`Casino Royale` voted best ever movie `remake`

11-Apr-2009 • Casino Royale

Daniel Craig's portrayal of superspy James Bond has impressed film fans - Casino Royale has been crowned the best ever movie remake in a new poll.

The 2006 thriller beat Brad Pitt and George Clooney's crime caper Ocean's Eleven to the top spot in a quiz of 1,500 fans.

Peter Jackson's 2005 blockbuster King Kong rounded out the top three in the survey, by movie rental website Lovefilm.com.

The poll failed to take in to account that the 22nd James Bond film was not a remake. The 1967 spoof version of "Casino Royale" was not made by EON Productions due to a quirk in the rights to the book being sold separately to the rest of the Ian Fleming series. The 2006 movie came about when EON secured the movie rights to Casino Royale.
