Can we just give whoever came up with Ocean’s 8 a raise? However much they’re making, they deserve more for putting all these women on screen together. Especially if this trailer is any indication.
A spin-off and sequel to the Ocean’s trilogy, Ocean’s 8 follows Danny Ocean’s estranged sister Debbie as she assembles her crew to steal a $100 million necklace during a gala. Towards that goal the movie itself assembled an amazing cast to play these eight thieves; Sandra Bullock plays Debbie Ocean, with Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Helena Bonham Carter, and Awkwafina playing the women she recruits to pull off the heist on mark Anne Hathaway.
If all those names on screen together didn’t interest you, I can’t imagine how the trailer itself fails to do the job. Besides showing off all the characters these ladies will play, it was just fun as hell to watch. It’s awesome. And finally, if the trailer itself fails to do the job, just look at Cate Blanchett rocking this look.
There have been a few all-female reboots of various franchises and stories either released or in the works. Some…don’t sound so good. This one, though, was just a fabulous idea. If the writing and directing somehow fails a cast this talented, they should never be allowed to work again. This is just too good to fail.
