Warner Bros. released the second trailer for Ocean’s 8 (below), a spinoff of Ocean’s 11 featuring a star-studded female-heavy cast including Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Rihanna, Awkwafina, Helena Bonham Carter, Sarah Paulson and Anne Hathaway.
The movie is centered around Bullock’s character Debbie Ocean (who is Ocean’s franchise stalwart Danny Ocean’s sister) as she plans a heist of New York City’s annual Met Gala. A score that she’s been planning during her entire stint in prison sentence. Ocean’s 8 will not only have an awesome female cast but will have some A-list cameos such as Matt Damon (despite calls to cut him), Carl Reiner, Katie Holmes, Dakota Fanning and Kim Kardashian West. And those are just the biggest ones that they’ve announced.
The cast is sharp, sexy, and confident not to mention funny. The big question is, will people accept these badass chicks taking over a franchise previously dominated by dudes? The Ghostbusters reboot was loved by some but others despised it, clinging to the original characters and films that they had always worshipped. But Ocean’s 8 may not encounter the same kind of intense reaction.
We’ll find out when Ocean’s 8 premieres in theaters on June 8, 2018.
