It’s been some time since we last heard about the upcoming Ocean’s 8 movie, but after a teaser trailer that dropped earlier this week, we finally have our first official trailer!
Again, THIS IS NOT A REBOOT, but is more of a spin-off of sorts. We’ve got Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock), sister of one Danny Ocean, promising a parole officer to stay on the straight and narrow after she’s released from jail.
But of course, she immediately starts assembling her own all-star team of crooks to pull off a heist. The target? A $150 million diamond encrusted necklace, to be stolen from the neck of one Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway) during the annual Met Ball in NYC. Yes, you read that right, DURING one of the most high profile events in New York’s social calendar.
A couple of months ago, I predicted that Ocean’s 8 would have an intricate plot (check), a cool sountrack (check), some killer clothes (double check), and hiding behind statues in the Met. Okay, so that last one wasn’t revealed in the trailer yet, but I’m still expecting it.
Ocean’s 8 stars Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Awkwafina, Helena Bonham Carter, Sarah Paulson, Anne Hathaway, Richard Armitage, Damian Lewis and James Corden. Whew, talk about an embarrassment of riches!
The movie is slated for release on 8 June 2018, which is still way too far away for my tastes. In the meantime, here’s the official poster:
