We’re just here for Rihanna.
But seriously, that was our initial thought when we heard that the first trailer for the upcoming Ocean’s 8 film was finally ready. However, after watching it, we’re both intrigued and excited.
Aside from your favorite beauty mastermind/fashion icon/pop star, the Ocean’s Eleven spinoff features Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter, Sarah Paulson and actress/rapper Awkwafina. Bullock plays George Clooney’s character’s sister, Debbie Ocean. Fresh out of jail, she’s ready to get back to conning and assembles a crew of talented women to help her pull off a heist at the annual Met Gala — and take care of some unfinished business.
While Ocean is the brains behind the operation, Rihanna plays Nine Ball, a loc-wearing hacker down for the thievery.
We’re sure not everyone is here for an all-female film in the franchise, but the trailer definitely grabs your attention. It’s smart, it’s colorful and in just two minutes, we get background on each woman on the team and the caper they have planned on perhaps one of the biggest nights in Hollywood.
Ocean’s 8 follows the Ocean’s trilogy, which included Ocean’s Eleven in 2001, Ocean’s Twelve in 2004 and Ocean’s Thirteen in 2007. While those thieves were into casino heists, this time around, these ladies are going after jewels. You can see how things will play out for Debbie and the crew when Ocean’s 8 hits theaters on June 8, 2018.
