27 February 2014, London, UK (Press Release) --- When it comes to big-hitting movies there are few directors who come close to Martin Scorsese, and online casino GR88.com has named his 1995 classic Casino as the greatest casino movie of all time.
When it was released in 1995, Casino was one of Scorsese’s most ambitious movies to date, and show-stealing performances from Robert de Niro, Sharon Stone and Joe Pesci helped it take a huge $116m at the box-office.
“There is no question in our minds when it comes to the crowning of the top spot on this prestigious list. Casino has it all with an amazing plot, fantastic character development and great cinematography,” he added.
The last 20 years have seen the casino movie sub-genre really come into its own, and GR88’s list features box-office smashes and cult classics alike. From comedy hit The Hangover to the glitzy remake of Oceans 11, GR88’s list brings together the best of the best, and the full countdown can be found here, while the other entries in GR88’s ‘Greatest 8’ series are available at blog.gr88.com/greatest-8.
Scorsese might be up for the Best Director Oscar this year, but with top place on GR88’s Greatest 8 Casino Movies list he is already a winner.
