Trivia: When Bond is playing baccarat with Xenia, his last hand, and only winning hand against her, is two face cards (a king and a queen if I remember correctly) and a six. In baccarat, face cards and tens are worth 0 and cards under ten are worth their number. So, his cards are, in order, 0-0-6, the code number of his lost friend, Alec Trevelyan (006).
Trivia: This flub needs slow-mo to catch but is worth listing as trivia. When Bond jumps off the dam, they do a shot, following him along his descent down the ledge of the wall. In a shot only visible during three or four frames, but they catch a shot of the ledge before panning down, in which you can see the film crew watching on top, together with a van or two...

Trivia: The "dish" in "Cuba" isn't some prop designed for the film, nor is it in Cuba. It's actually the Arecibo Observatory, an antenna in Puerto Rico designed to look into space for radio waves and other signs of intelligent life.
Trivia: This was the first Bond film to have designed credits by Daniel Kleinman. The director loved the opening credits so much that Kleinman kept the job.
Trivia: Perrier paid a fortune for their cans to be crashed through by the tank. After the filming Perrier representatives picked up every single can, crushed or intact, to prevent people getting hold of them and re-using them to sell "false" Perrier.
Trivia: "Alec Trvelyan" never died on screen in Germany. The last scene German audiences saw was when he plummets to the ground after falling from the antenna. The latter part of the scene, where the structure collapses onto him, was cut in its entirety.
Trivia: Producer Michael G. Wilson has a cameo role as a member of the Russian Security Council.
Trivia: This was Pierce Brosnan's first appearance as James Bond. After Roger Moore announced his retirement from playing 007, Timothy Dalton was offered the role but was unavailable. Brosnan was then offered the role in "The Living Daylights" (1987) but lost out due to his contractual obligations to "Remington Steele".
Trivia: This is the first Bond film to use computer-generated imagery in any non-credits scene.
Trivia: The novel Casino Royale, the first James Bond novel, was originally published on April 13, 1953. Pierce Brosnan was born on May 16, 1953, making him one month and three days younger than Bond the character. This Bond film marks the first time the character had existed longer than the actor playing him.
Trivia: The tank chase in St. Petersburg took around six weeks to film.
Trivia: At the beginning, Bond initially sets the bomb's timing device for six minutes. Read it backwards and you get 006 - as in Agent 006, Alec Trevelyan.
