The most glamorous movies in Hollywood history are finally coming to 4K Ultra HD Disc and Digital as the acclaimed trilogy of crime caper heist comedies—Ocean’s Eleven, Ocean’s Twelve, and Ocean’s Thirteen—from Academy Award-winning director Steven Soderbergh and starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, and Andy Garcia will be available to purchase from April 30, Collider can exclusively reveal. Made between 2001 and 2007, the Ocean’s trilogy is celebrated for its blend of humor, suspense, and the dynamics among its ensemble cast. The films are stylish capers that pay homage to the original 1960 Ocean’s 11 movie—which starred The Rat Pack—while updating the concept for a new generation.

The Ocean’s trilogy kicks off with Ocean’s Eleven (2001), where Danny Ocean (Clooney) orchestrates a heist to rob three Las Vegas casinos owned by his rival Terry Benedict (Garcia), aiming to both pull off an unprecedented crime and win back his ex-wife, Tess (Julia Roberts). He enlists a crew of specialists for the elaborate plan. The sequel, Ocean’s Twelve (2004), sees the team in Europe, repaying Benedict under threat and competing with a master thief, Isabel Lahiri (Catherine Zeta-Jones), introducing new characters and themes of thief rivalry. Ocean’s Thirteen (2007) returns to Vegas, targeting casino owner Willy Bank (Al Pacino) to avenge a betrayed team member, focusing on loyalty and revenge through another complex heist.
