We’ve seen more on-set paparazzi shots and behind-the-scenes Instagrams posts teasing us (of the plot) than we can count, but now we finally have an official glimpse for the very hyped-up all- female film ‘Ocean’s Eight’.
The film released the above trailer yesterday, which introduces the star-studded cast—including Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Paulson, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter and Awkwafina— and the characters they will play.
The trailer positions Sandra Bullock’s character at the helm of a new heist crew anchored by Cate Blanchett. Mindy Kaling plays a jewellery expert, Rihanna is a mysterious hacker type, Helena Bonham Carter works in fashion, Sarah Paulson’s a reluctant mom, and Awkwafina plays a street-smart hustler.
The target is Anne Hathaway’s character, or more specifically, her $150,000,000 necklace. At first glance, the pacing, tone, and humour of the trailer seem consistent with previous ‘Ocean’ films.
The film won’t be released until June next year, but until then, you can check out the first official trailer above.
