Trailer: "Ocean's 8" starring Bullock, Blanchett, Hathaway, Bonham Carter, Kaling, Paulson and, Rihanna?



We still don't really know anything about the movie. What we do know is that it's a spinoff rather than a remake, or reboot, and that the cast is great. I'm praying this gets a decent script. Don't fuck it up Warner Bros. We don't need another "Ghostbusters" debacle.

Because humor is, in a way, subjective with the "Ocean's" films, this stands a much better chance at being successful as compared to "Ghosbusters" which had to rely heavily on humor. Also look at the great cast they have assembled here: Blanchett, Bullock, Hathaway and Carter are some of the best actresses of their generations, but Rihanna? I'm skeptical about that casting choice but I presume she won't get too much screen time either.

The date for "Ocean's 8," hey that's a nice little rhyme, is set for Summer of 2018. In a way, those mediocre sequels that followed Soderbergh's original 2001 "Ocean's Eleven" are definitely going to help make the case for this all-female version. Soderbergh's version is a heist classic, a pop masterpiece if you will.


For the time being I'll leave you with this relevant line from comedian John Mulaney. This was said way before there was any talk of this even happening.


"A heist film can't work with women. You couldn't do Ocean's 11 with women. It won't work because 2 of them would always be breaking off to talk shit about the other 9." - John Mulaney

The film will be directed by Gary Ross and set for release June 8th, 2018
