Casinos have been famous prime locations for making movies since the era of silver screen began. Casinos provide a dramatic backdrop for glamorous rises and falls of the most colourful characters. We heard there is going to be a sequel of the 1998 poker movie “Rounders” which will be called “Rounders 2” and will be starring Leonardo DiCaprio. With the release of this online casino poker movie which is due to hit screens in 2012, we thought of rounding up our all time 5 favourite casino movies.
The title of the movie says it all - Casino, starring Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci. A movie which takes you back to a romantic time way before they had any online casino games to offer.
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998)
Well this isn’t really a casino movie and it more depicts Thompson’s most infamous works on what Vegas is all about in the eyes of the American dream, still a killer movie.
Casino Royale (2006)
This classic movie which has been remade recently with Daniel Craig is arguably one of the best casino movies ever made. Who knows maybe 40 years later Casino Royale will be remade in an online casino?
Starring Matt Damon as a poker player, Rounders is famously the best poker movie of all times. The sequel is due to come out in 2012 and is in development, it is rumoured that Leonardo DiCaprio is to star in the next big poker movie.
Oceans 11 (1960, 2001)
Most people today refer to the 2001 remake, though some still prefer the original 1960 version as the pioneer. Oceans 12 and Oceans 13 sadly didn’t have such a great effect and impact on devoted movie goers around the world.
