Smokin’ Aces Release Date: January 26, 2007

An incendiary array of stars – including BEN AFFLECK, ANDY GARCIA, RAY LIOTTA, JEREMY PIVEN, RYAN REYNOLDS, PETER BERG, TARAJI HENSON, CHRIS PINE, JASON BATEMAN and, in their motion-picture debuts, Grammy-winning singer ALICIA KEYS and hip-hop artist COMMON — star in “Smokin’ Aces,” the new dark action-comedy from writer/director JOE CARNAHAN, the creator of Narc. Welcome to Lake Tahoe, Nevada, where everyone is zeroing in on Buddy “Aces” Israel. Sleaze personified, illusionist Aces (Jeremy Piven) grew up in a world full of card sharks, gamblers, killers and thugs. By 21, he was keeping company with major criminal muscle — headlining sold-out shows at MGM’s main room. After becoming the unofficial mascot for the Vegas mob, Aces started believing his own press and buying into the hype. He decides to showcase his showbiz power and parlay it into a life of crime. He wants to be his own mob boss…the movies make it look so easy. What Aces winds up doing is running afoul of the very organization that had taken him in, and his one-time benefactor, mob power broker Primo Sparazza, becomes his mortal enemy. Rumor of a $1,000,000 hit fee, fronted by Sparazza, hits the streets and spreads far and wide, attracting an assortment of degenerate psychopaths and assassins – all gunning for the bounty on his head. Apparently, Aces has agreed to turn state’s evidence against his criminal cronies in Vegas…in order to save himself from life in prison. The FBI, sensing a chance to use this small-time con to bring down big-time target Sparazza, places Aces into protective custody, under the supervision of two agents dispatched to Aces’ hideout. With all eyes on Lake Tahoe, a rogues’ gallery of killers collides in a mad race to the Nomad Casino penthouse suite, where they hope to hit the jackpot and rub out Aces – “Smokin Aces.”
