The Times ‘MI6 Assassination’ newspaper from the production of Martin Campbell’s 2006 entry in the Bond franchise, Casino Royale.
Bond (Daniel Craig) is newly armed with a license to kill and sets out on his first mission as 007. He must defeat a banker who funds terrorists in a high-stakes game of poker at the Casino Royale in Montenegro.
The newspaper and others like it were made for the production and it features a front page with the story of Bond assassinating a bombmaker (Sebastien Foucan), which was the first action set-piece of the film. The paper is not obviously seen onscreen in the final cut of the film although M (Judi Dench) does show a copy of another paper to Bond. The cover features a CCTV shot of the event. The cover page is printed over an old page from The Sun tabloid, and the inside is a copy of The Times from February 2006.
The newspaper has some wear from production use and storage, including some minor creasing, but overall it remains in an excellent condition.
