The battle of hunks
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
June 09, 2007
This is what the latest big sequel of Hollywood is about. Enough of superheroes, pirates and their sea Godesses; its time for some stylish action (James Bond style). Ocean’s Thirteen opened this weekend, the fourth sequel to hit theaters this summer and going by the trend this one too must do quite well. However there are reasons to believe that the movie might not do that well after all. We will give you the reasons.
Ocean's Thirteen

First comes the predictability factor. Everyone knows what they are going to get with Ocean’s Thirteen. Hot Hollywood hunks on a ‘who is smarter’ race, coming up trumps at the end, their blazers and hairstyle all immaculately in place. This is what was on offer with Ocean’s Eleven and Twelve too. When it happened in Ocean’s Eleven it was new and everyone enjoyed it. But when the same crew tried to repeat the act in Ocean’s Twelve the public was not willing to shell out their money. So it has to be seen how many people actually shake off the Ocean’s Twelve blues and decide to try out the new installment. Also there is competition in the form of Captain Jack Sparrow who still has some life left in him and some other new releases which are doing surprisingly well.

But there are also reasons why Ocean’s Thirteen is likely to do well at the box office. First the star presence. The list of the men on screen is enough to make any woman feel weak in her knees. Pitt and Clooney would suffice to do that but here you have Matt Damon and others thrown in for good measure and for admirers of vintage sophistication there is Al Pacino, a first timer in this franchise. The sheer pulling power of the stars might make the movie a good grosser.

Which way the people think? We will know early next week.
