The new trailer for Ocean’s 8 is here. The movie is the latest entry in the series of hit heist thrillers that kicked off with 2001’s Ocean’s Eleven and features an all-female gang, led by Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett.
Like the first trailer in December , it shows that the movie is very much following the template laid down by the previous films. Bullock plays Debbie Ocean, the sister of George Clooney’s character in the originals, and she puts together a team to perform a seemingly impossible heist–in this case stealing diamonds from the Met Gala in New York. Check it out above.
Ocean’s 8 also stars Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Awkwafina, and Sarah Paulson and opens on June 8, 2018. Homeland‘s Damian Lewis plays the film’s villain, while Matt Damon, one of the stars of the original movies, is also set to cameo.
It is directed by The Hunger Games‘ Gary Ross and produced by Steven Soderbergh, who helmed the earlier movies. In an interview with Slashfilm last year, Ross explained that he would very much follow the tone set by Soderbergh’s trilogy. “I think it’s a pretty similar tone,” he said. “You know, Steven and I are incredibly close friends, and we would not have done this if we weren’t. I don’t think he would’ve wanted anyone to do it if we weren’t. This is very much an extension and a continuation.”
Ocean’s Eleven earned $450 million worldwide in 2001. While the two sequels weren’t quite as successful, they all proved to be considerable box office hits, helping the franchise reach more than $1.1 billion at the box office.
