“In 3 1/2 weeks, the Met will be holding its annual ball — and we are going to rob it,” Debbie Ocean tells her co-conspirators. “$16.5 million in each of your bank accounts five weeks from now.” There’s just one problem: “This is the most sophisticated security in the world.”
Oh yeah? Bring it on.
Here’s the new trailer for Ocean’s 8, the female-driven offshoot from the mega-successful 2000s film series that itself was spawned from the 1960 Rat Pack picture. The heist yarn stars Sandra Bullock as convicted felon Debbie Ocean — sister of Danny Ocean, more convicted felon — along with Cate Blanchett and their merry sisterhood of theives including Anne Hathaway, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, Jaime King and Awkwafina, Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter. Anne Hathway plays their self-absorbed mark.
James Corden and Richard Armitage also turn up in the pic, which will feature some cameos familiar to fans of Steven Soderbergh Ocean’s trilogy. Gary Ross directed, which he co-wrote with Olivia Milch, and Soderbergh and Susan Ekins return to the franchise as producers.
Warner Bros opens the Village Roadshow pic June 8. Have a look at the trailer, groove to “You’re No Good,” and tell us what you think.
