Filming began in July 2006 in Las Vegas and Los Angeles, based on a script by Brian Koppelman and David Levien. The film was screened as an Out of Competition presentation at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival, and was released on June 8, 2007 in the United States. The film was well-received and grossed $311 million worldwide, making it the sixteenth highest-grossing film of 2007.
Reuben Tishkoff invests in building a massive new hotel-casino on the Las Vegas strip; however, against advice from his friend and erstwhile criminal partner, Danny Ocean, he involves himself with wealthy investor Willy Bank, whose thugs coerce him into signing over his stake in ownership rights. Tishkoff suffers a heart attack and becomes bedridden. Out of respect for him, Ocean offers Bank a chance to set things right, given his long history in Las Vegas and the fact that he “shook Sinatra’s hand,” but Bank refuses and completes construction of the hotel, renamed “The Bank” since he broke the deal with Reuben. To avenge Tishkoff, Ocean gathers his partners-in-crime and plans to ruin Bank on the opening night of the hotel. They develop a plan with two objectives: the first is to prevent The Bank from winning the prestigious Five Diamond Award, which all of Bank’s previous hotels have won. Saul Bloom is designated to stand in as the anonymous Diamond reviewer, while Ocean and his associates will treat the real reviewer horribly during his stay.
The second objective is to rig all of the casino’s games, primarily the slot machines, roulette tables, and craps, to pay out millions in winnings; Bank’s casino has to make $500 million in order to stay open, otherwise he would have to cede control of the casino to the gambling board. While they can implement various rigging mechanisms into the casino, Danny and his crew know that they would be easily stopped by the Greco Player Tracker, a state-of-the-art computer system that continuously monitors the gamblers’ biometric responses and predicts when cheating is happening. To disrupt the Greco, they plan to use a magnetron disguised as a new cell phone as a gift to Bank. They also obtain the drilling machine used to bore the Channel Tunnel to simulate an earthquake under the casino, assuring that Bank will implement safety protocols to evacuate the casino. Their plan on opening night is to have Bank inadvertently disrupt Greco by using his new phone, initiate their rigged machines and dealers on their payroll, and then simulate the earthquake to force the evacuation and have players leave with their winnings.
Shortly before opening night, the drill breaks down, forcing Danny to ask Terry Benedict, whom Danny has slighted in the past, for funds to buy a replacement. Benedict, who also seeks retribution against Bank, offers the funds for a portion of his share of the take and demands that Ocean also steal Banks’ private diamond collection in celebration of his Five Diamond Awards. These are valued at over $250 million and secured in a case at the top of The Bank. Ocean has Linus Caldwell get romantically close to Bank’s assistant, Abigail Sponder, to gain access to the case. Secretly, Benedict contracts master thief François “The Night Fox” Toulour to intercept the diamonds after Ocean steals them.
On opening night, Ocean institutes the final part of the plan by having FBI agents on his payroll arrive at the hotel and publicly arrest Livingston Dell on suspicion of rigging the card-shuffling machines, allowing them to be replaced with actual rigged ones under Bank’s nose. Another FBI agent arrests Linus for switching the diamonds with fakes. The agent takes Linus away but reveals himself to be his father, Robert Caldwell, also in on Ocean’s plan. They try to evacuate from the roof but are intercepted by Toulour, who takes the diamonds. However, Ocean had anticipated this, and for this reason never actually had Linus make the switch. Linus and his father escape in a helicopter piloted by Basher, tearing the case from the roof and taking the real diamonds with them.
The remainder of Ocean’s plan goes as expected, and as they trigger the earthquake, the players evacuate with millions of dollars of winnings. Ocean approaches a devastated Bank and tells him they did everything for Reuben. Ocean also reminds Bank that he cannot get revenge, since he cannot go to the police due to Bank’s past illegal activities and that all of Bank’s associates favor Ocean over him. With their share of the winnings, Ocean’s crew buy property on the Strip for Reuben to build his own casino. Because of his treachery, Ocean donates Benedict’s $72 million portion of the take to charity in Benedict’s name, forcing him to admit his philanthropy on broadcast television. As Ocean, Rusty, and Linus prepare to head off at the airport, Rusty rigs one of the slot machines there to allow the real Diamond reviewer to win $11 million as a way to compensate him for how they treated him.
