Important Question for the Day

If they do a sequel to Ocean's Twelve, will they call it Ocean's Thirteen or just skip straight to Ocean's Fourteen?


  • Neither - they'll probably try to do something "clever" with the title so people revel in their wit and creativity.

    Ocean's Twelve plus One


    Ocean's N

    Something like that.

  • They are doing a sequel and according to IMDB, it's called Ocean's Thirteen.

  • "They are doing a sequel and according to IMDB, it's called Ocean's Thirteen."

    How disappointing! I thought they were required by Hollywood convention to get creative with the name of the second sequel. They must be taking this Ocean's series very seriously!

  • Hmm, I guess they're not worried about bad luck. Or maybe being in a second sequel which is an original screenplay is considered bad luck enough - so the risk of more is worth running - although on the other hand, with (almost) all the big name starts returning and Soderbergh directing maybe it will buck the odds and be a hit. But on the other hand, the writers are the same people who brought us 'Walking Tall' so thirteen may prove unlucky after all. Time will tell, I suppose.

    As Simon says, you'd think they would have been more creative - 'Ocean's 13-D' or 'Ocean's 10: Ocean Returns' or 'Oceans Away' (overseas) or something like that (I like the Baker's Dozen idea, maybe they could have called it Caper's Dozen), although then they would have lost the 'Ocean' trademark.
