It feels like we’ve been hearing about this movie for years, and that’s probably because we have. They started promoting this movie back in 2015, teasing the all-star cast, which includes Sandra Bullock, Anne Hathaway and Rihanna.
Ocean’s 8 is scheduled to be released next June, 11 years after the final installment of the original series.
“The trailer positions Sandra Bullock’s character at the helm of a new heist crew anchored by Cate Blanchett. Mindy Kaling plays a jewelry expert, Rihanna a mysterious hacker type, Helena Bonham Carter works in fashion, Sarah Paulson’s a reluctant mom, and Awkwafina plays a street-smart hustler. The target is Anne Hathaway’s character, or more specifically, her $150,000,000 necklace.”
The early reaction to this trailer? Pretty positive. It does look entertaining, so at least there’s that. It doesn’t exactly feel original or even necessary, but at least it’ll be entertaining!
As mentioned above, Ocean’s 8 will hit theaters June 8, 2018.
