Friends of the Ocean ": a qualitative or a cheap sequel to" opera "?

March 28 2006

Not burdened with prejudice, "Oscar winner Steven Soderbergh has decided not limited to" dvuhseriynikom ": after" Ocean's Eleven "and" Twelve ... "on the screens in the coming year will be" a baker's dozen. "

George Clooney, for which assigned a major role in the new movie , it seems, are not afraid of a sinister figure. Even with the bad "omen", when the trauma of the cervical spine prevented him to take part in a promotion campaign on the occasion of the "Twelve friends" just over a year ago. The circumstances of the unfortunate injury and remained behind the scenes.

Meanwhile, paradoxically, on the one hand, this year has more friends - it should be at least the name filmstrip. On the other - of familiar faces in the film reduced.

As reported by film studio Warner Bros., A decent female role was not found for Julia Roberts , who managed to "mark" in the two previous tapes.

Out of business also remained Catherine Zeta-Jones - for the same reason.

The rest, as regards the cast - all completely 'normal': George Clooney, Brad Pitt , Matt Damon, Don Cheadle, Bernie Mac, Carl Reiner and Elliott Gould.

Filming will begin in July, presumably so that after one year to the next summer season, the final product came out on the wide screen.

The fact that the viewer expects, producers prefer not to.

The only "secret", a film critic who managed to find out: intrigue movie will definitely be tied to the robbery.

However, do not necessarily have seven genius to at least guess: otherwise it can not be. In the previous two series, Danny Ocean (Clooney's character) and Rusty Ryan (Pitt) is headed by a gang of adventurers professionally hunted theft. If the first film to their account robbery underground storage facility in Las Vegas , in the second they were plotting to three audacious attacks in Paris, Rome and Asterdame.

The first two films, as is known, were shot in Las Vegas and Europe. However, as recognized by one of the producers of "saga" Jerry Weintraub, shooting in "combat" conditions - in a real casino - are associated with fairly obvious difficulties. In this regard, it is possible that work on the third film will be in one of the sites the studios. Perhaps, in the town of Burbank - this kinoimperii, where for the occasion will be built this casino.

The success of the "Ocean" - in monetary terms amounting to more than $ 450 million - has provoked the appearance three years later a sequel. True, the event turned out to be less significant: revenue amounted to "only" $ 360 million. In total, get something around 800 million. Given the notorious skepticism with which the film critics expect the appearance of "baker's dozen," Will Soderbergh and Co. "round" general fees?
