Bullock Sets the Stage in “Ocean’s 8” Trailer

In the age of sequels, prequels, reboots and revivals, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that Warner Bros. has opted to expand on a universe that has already gotten the remake treatment.  But unlike other repeats, Ocean's 8 appears to be doing everything right - including casting Oscar winner Sandra Bullock as the film’s lead.

The film, which just got a new trailer, bolsters one of the most impressive casts of recent memory - a regular for the franchise.  And while the original film (and its remake) features a wealth of testosterone, this one is centric on the ladies as a team of female criminals band together to preform an unprecedented robbery at the highly exclusive (and visually spectacular) Met Gala.

Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, and Rihanna join Bullock, with Gary Ross serving director duties.  

Though there likely won’t be any awards that come out of this film, by the looks of things, its gonna be a hell of a lot of fun.  Ocean's 8, in all its kick-ass, girl power glory, hits theaters on June 8.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
