"Ocean's 13" Set to Debut at Cannes

by | March 16, 2007 | Comments

If you wanted to be one of the first to see the year’s biggest confluence of star power on a single screen, you’d better start shopping for a ticket to France — Variety reports that "Ocean’s Thirteen" will be making its debut at Cannes.

It’ll be screening out of the competition, following in the recent footsteps of previous Warner Bros. productions "Troy" and "The Matrix Reloaded." The splashy debut will help raise the film’s profile — not like it needs the assistance, but every little bit counts, right? — although, as the makers of "Marie Antoinette," "Hollywood Ending," and "The Ladykillers" could tell you, opening at Cannes doesn’t always spell box-office magic.

"Ocean’s Thirteen" director Steven Soderbergh is no stranger to the festival, of course; his first film, "sex, lies and videotape," won the Palme d’Or in 1989. (This is a feat "Ocean’s Thirteen" would seem to have little hope of repeating even if it were being entered in the competition, but then again, that isn’t really the point for this type of movie.)

The star-studded sequel, slated for a June 8 opening, stars (among others) Al Pacino, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Don Cheadle, Andy Garcia, Bernie Mac, Elliott Gould, and Ellen Barkin.
