    BURBANK, Calif., February 25, 2002 - Ex-con Danny Ocean has put together a

    handpicked eleven-man crew to pull off the most daring heist in Las Vegas

    history. The result is Ocean's Eleven, the $185 million box-office

    Brockovich, Traffic, Out of Sight) and 2002's first "must-have" mega-hit

    video, available May 7 from Warner Home Video (WHV) direct to sell-through,

    priced at $22.98 SRP for VHS and $26.98 SRP for DVD.

    Ocean's Eleven boasts an unmatched, all-star cast that has collectively

    earned more than 4.5 billion dollars at the box-office. Called "the coolest

    damned thing around" by Rolling Stone Magazine, Ocean's Eleven was one of

    American Outlaws), ELLIOTT GOULD ("Friends," American History X), BERNIE MAC

    ("The Bernie Mac Show,") and CARL REINER (The Sid Caesar Collection, The

    Jerk) also star in this pure fun heist movie that mixes witty dialogue,

    edge-of-your-seat excitement and even a bit of romance.

    "No other title in recent years has this many of the top stars in one film,"

    said Mike Saksa, WHV vice president, U.S. marketing. "We expect this

    unparalleled star power and popular genre will be a 'sure bet' with

    consumers."

    Sounds nice enough having 2 commentaries but falls far short of an SE.

    No big deal to me, I wasn't really waiting on an SE of this film though I wouldn't mind having one since it's a Soderbergh.

    I know some snapper cases have been being re-released in keepcases but i don't remember which studio was doing that, i was pretty sure it was warner though. Anyways i was wondering if anyone had any idea if ocean's 11 would get release in a keep case soon (possibly as a 2 pack with ocean's 12) I've been putting off buying this strictly because of the snapper case and a release in a keep case would equal an instant sale for me.

    So ya - Ocean's 11 in a keepcase? am i asking for too much

    side note - why is it so hard to search for ocean's eleven? i had to use the word "eleven" to find anything
