Bellagio – Film and Media


  • The fountains are shown briefly in one scene of the movie Rush Hour 2.
  • The Bellagio and its fountains are featured in the 2007 film Lucky You and the 2008 film 21.
  • The Bellagio was featured prominently in the remake of Ocean’s Eleven. The curved staircase that Tess Ocean (played by Julia Roberts) descended was removed during a 2006 remodel to accommodate the entrance pathway from a newly built hotel tower, called The Spa Tower. New shops and restaurants fill the space. The fictitious vault for the three casinos that were robbed (MGM Grand, Mirage, and Bellagio) owned by Terry Benedict (played by Andy García) was located beneath the Bellagio in 200 ft of solid earth.
  • In the 2007 film Ocean’s Thirteen, Daniel Ocean (played by George Clooney) is talking about The Dunes Hotel (which was situated on the same place before the Bellagio was built) while he is standing in front of the Fountains of Bellagio together with Rusty Ryan (played by Brad Pitt).
  • In the 2009 film 2012, The Bellagio, along with the rest of The Strip, was destroyed while the dome of the hotel is nearly crashed into by the giant plane similar to the Antonov An-225.
  • In the 2009 film The Hangover, the Bellagio fountains are featured in the opening scenes. Towards the end of the film, Doug (played by Justin Bartha) finds Bellagio chips in his pocket after being found.
