First Full Trailer for Heist Comedy 'Ocean's 8' Directed by Gary Ross
"This is mommy's very special work trip." Warner Bros has unveiled the first official trailer for the heist comedy Ocean's 8, the all-women follow-up to the Ocean's 11 series. This is produced by George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh, so it kinda has that Danny Ocean vibe anyway, even though there's a shot of Danny in a cemetery so yeah. The fantastic ensemble of women who pull off a heist in New York includes: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Anne Hathaway, and Awkwafina. There's many other potential cameos in this, as the heist takes place during the fancy Met Gala. Honestly, this looks fun and it might be the perfect continuation of the Ocean's series.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Gary Ross' Ocean's 8, direct from WB's YouTube:
Danny Ocean's estranged sister Debbie attempts to pull off the heist of the century at New York City's star-studded annual Met Gala. Her first stop is to assemble the perfect crew: Lou, Rose, Daphne Kluger, Nine Ball, Tammy, Amita, and Constance. Ocean's 8 is directed by American filmmaker Gary Ross, of the films Pleasantville, Seabiscuit, The Hunger Games, and Free State of Jones previously. The screenplay is written by Gary Ross and Olivia Milch. Produced by George Clooney, Susan Ekins, and Steven Soderbergh. Warner Bros will release Ross' Ocean's 8 in theaters everywhere starting June 8th, 2018 next summer. Who's in?

Well............ why not. Hopefully Mr. Ocean has not lost his touch.

Outside of the usual "unnecessary reboot" comment.. this is totally unnecessary reboot

*sigh* I hope this makes no money what so ever only because I hope it gets the idiots fired who thought this was a good idea.

Heist comedy, my least favourite genre, closely followed by action rom-com.

The casting of female leads in remakes of previously male dominated films is insulting to women. Do they not deserve their own, original films? Is there any good ideas out there from screenwriters for an all female cast? I'm sure the answer is yes, but Hollywood continues to show it will take bigger risks producing these types of remakes instead of giving women well-written, original roles they deserve. Ugh.

I'm probably most curious to see how Awkwafina fairs in this. I hope she isn't thrown away like the Chinese acrobat in the original 11.

Yeah, I want it to succeed for girls, but I think, as many others here, that this is a bad idea. Watching intelligent women doing something shallow like this ...

I'm sorry Alex, I can't share your optimism here. This will come and go and be forgotten within a few months. Good job Hollywood!

Looks ok, but I don't really get the Ocean connection... Is Sandra Bullock supposed to be Danny Ocean's sister or something? Don't really know why they have to make these women ride on an all male franchise though tbh... why not just have an original concept women centric heist movie that can stand on its own two legs?

Another worthless all female remake. I smell a box office dud.
