Your first clue that Ocean’s 8 will not be like any of the previous Ocean-followed-by-a-number movies? Rihanna. Second? The main cast is compromised entirely of women. This one’s about FASHIONNNNNNNNNN!!!!1111!!!11111
The premise is this: Sandra Bullock gets parole (she was in jail! I guess!) and immediately decides to perform one last heist with Cate Blanchett, who has a platinum bob with bangs and a spectacular leopard-print coat. The job? Steal the $150 million diamond necklace of Anne Hathaway, who plays Anne Hathaway but even more Anne-Hathaway-y. Where? The Met Gala, of course!
Naturally, they can’t do it alone or otherwise this movie would be a lot less fun, which is where the following celebrities come in: Mindy Kaling, the jewelry maker who still lives with her mom; Akwafina, the masterful pickpocket; Rihanna, the hacker; Sarah Paulson, the wealthy stay-at-home mom; and Helena Bonham Carter, some kind of sad fashion person (?). Whatever. It looks very great!
Watch the first official trailer below.
Ocean’s 8 will premiere on June 8th, 2018.
