Casino Royale

Contemporary reviews of this film mention an opening sequence that spoofs the Bond films' "gunbarrel" opening, only instead of us hearing a gunshot, we hear a popping cork. Perhaps it was thought to be too similar to the opening of the regular Bond films, because TV and video prints instead use a short sequence from the middle of the film as the "teaser." The version of the film presented on this disc is no exception.
