Ocean's Thirteen



Ocean's 13 is a 2007 film directed by Stephen Soderbergh and starring an ensemble cast led by George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Al Pacino, Matt Damon and Elliott Gould. It is the third in the Soderbergh series following the 2004 sequel Ocean's Twelve of the 2001 picture Ocean's Eleven, a remake of the 1960 Rat Pack film Ocean's Eleven which was itself highly influenced by Jean-Pierre Melville's Bob le Flambeur (1955). The film is set be released June 8, 2007.

Filming began in July 2006 in Las Vegas and Los Angeles, based on a script by Brian Koppelman and David Levien.

Since it's world premiere on May 24, 2007, at the Cannes Film Festival, the film has been well received. One of the first reviews read, "Soderbergh’s sophisticated humour has never looked so fresh and sharp."

When Reuben Tishkoff (Elliott Gould) makes the mistake of building a hotel with one of Las Vegas’ most hated businessmen, Willy Banks (Al Pacino), he gets cut out of the deal and ends up in the hospital after a heart attack. Danny Ocean (George Clooney) tries to help his old friend out by giving Banks a chance to restore Reuben’s share of the hotel, but Banks dismisses him without any regard. Six months later, with Banks’ investment thriving as the richest hotel in the city and the ultimate spot for high rollers, Ocean and his crew decide to bring him down. With the help of their former nemesis, casino owner Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia), who is also out to settle the score against Banks, his fierce rival, they scheme to find a way to bankrupt Banks on his casino’s opening night. This time, they are not in it for the money, but rather for revenge.
