Just last week, award-winning actress Sarah Paulson shared what would ultimately be a source of excitement among movie fans around the globe. Paulson, in a tweet, teased Hollywood with the official poster of Ocean’s 8–-heir apparent to the Ocean‘s trilogy starred by George Clooney, this time headed by Academy Award Winner Sandra Bullock as Danny Ocean’s estranged sister, Debbie.
Not long after, Warner Bros. followed suit and posted the official poster of the coming 2018 movie. Bullock is joined by a diverse cast of actresses from Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Helena Bonham Carter, and Awkwafina. Just yesterday, the first trailer of the action flick was dropped online and it has already amassed almost 6 million views on YouTube. Proves to show that everything a man can do, a woman can do in designer coats and stilettos.
Bullock, however, quickly clapped back on the flak the movie is already getting for its supposed “anti-men” stance. She told Entertainment Weekly, “This is not a man-hating. We love the men. There’s men in this movie. We love them. But this one heist needs women.” She adds, “We’re not a reboot. We’re just a this is what’s happening in 2017. It’s not even a passing of the torch. It’s a parallel story of another family member that was raised in the same family Danny Ocean was and what happens when Debbie steps out of jail with all of these amazing, powerful women.”
The plot will revolve around Debbie plotting the ultimate caper at the famed Met Gala in New York. Original cast members from the first Ocean‘s films were also expected to make an appearance in the movie like Matt Damon and Carl Reiner and Richard Armitage, which is set to be helmed by Richard Ross of the The Hunger Games franchise.
The film is set for release this coming June 8, 2018.
