Synopsis: Debbie Ocean gathers a crew to attempt an impossible heist at New York City’s yearly Met Gala.
Release Date: June 8, 2018
Thoughts: Here’s a female-driven, star-studded shake-up of the Ocean’s Eleven heist series started by George Clooney, Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, and a host of other A-Listers back in 2001. After three films, the boys are taking a back seat to the women and it’s about dang time. Set for a summer 2018 release, Ocean’s 8 has Sandra Bullock (The Heat) headlining a new crop of lady crooks plotting to swindle some bling off a famous actress (Anne Hathaway, Les Misérables) at the stylish Met Ball. Bullock is joined by Cate Blanchett (Thor: Ragnarok), Mindy Kaling (The Five-Year Engagement), Sarah Paulson (Mud), Rihanna (Battleship), Helena Bonham Carter (Suffragette), James Corden (Into the Woods), and perhaps a familiar Ocean’s face or two. Written/directed by Gary Ross (The Hunger Games), I’m looking forward to this, looks like it could be a lot of fun.
