Sandra Bullock assembles a team of brilliant female thieves and con artists in the trailer for the upcoming Ocean’s 8. Check it out here.
Steven Soderberg’s Ocean’s Eleven was a bit of a surprise hit and showed everybody how a good heist comedy could be made. It went on the spawn multiple sequels of varying quality but now they’ve decided to mix it up a bit by making another Ocean’s film, Ocean’s 8, only this time instead of it being a team of men, it’s the women who are pulling the heist. They did a similar thing with the Ghostbusters franchise last year and I for one welcome this transition. There are far too many male-dominated movies in Hollywood today. It’s time for the women to shine.
Sandra Bullock will be playing Danny Ocean’s estranged sister, Debbie, who after a brief stint in the clink wants to pull off the heist the century. She assembles a team filled with the very best thieves and con artists in the world who all happen to be women. The target: Daphne Kluger’s (Anne Hathaway) necklace worth over $100 million. The place: New York City’s star-studded annual Met Gala. It’s not going to be easy but knowing how these Ocean’s films tend to go I’m sure they’ll be plenty of misdirection and it’ll be a heist worth keeping an eye on.
Among Debbie’s team is Lou (Cate Blanchett), Rose (Helena Bonham Carter), Nine Ball (Rihanna), Tammy (Sarah Paulson), Amita (Mindy Kaling) and Constance (Awkwafina). Ocean’s 8 is being helmed by The Hunger Games director, Gary Ross, who co-wrote the script with Olivia Milch.
The film will be in UK cinemas on June 22nd, 2018. Are you looking forward to watching this caper unfold? Let us know in the comments below.
