The first official teaser trailer for Ocean’s 8 finds Sandra Bullock beginning the trailer in jail, claiming she just wants out so she can get a job and lead a normal life. That’s obviously a lie as the next clip shows her stealing items and then putting together a team to pull off a major jewelry heist.
In addition to Sandra Bullock, the female-driven Ocean’s 8 stars Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Awkwafina, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, and Sarah Paulson. Warner Bros Pictures is targeting a June 8, 2018 theatrical release.
The studio also unveiled a new poster for the action thriller directed by Gary Ross. Ross also co-wrote the script with Olivia Milch.
Steven Soderbergh – director of Ocean’s Eleven, Oceans Twelve, and Ocean’s Thirteen – and Jon Kilik produced the new take on the Ocean‘s films. Sandra Bullock, Michael Tadross, Susan Ekins, Diana Alvarez, and Bruce Berman executive produced. The behind the scenes crew included director of photography Eigil Bryld (In Bruges, Not Fade Away), production designer Alex DiGerlando (Beasts of the Southern Wild, True Detective), editor Juliette Welfling (Free State of Jones, The Hunger Games), costume designer Sarah Edwards (Tower Heist, Billions), and composer Nicholas Britell (The Big Short, Free State of Jones).
The Plot: Debbie Ocean attempts to pull off the heist of the century at New York City’s star-studded annual Met Gala. Her first stop is to assemble the perfect crew: Lou (Cate Blanchett), Nine Ball (Rihanna), Amita (Mindy Kaling), Constance (Awkwafina), Rose (Helena Bonham Carter), Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway), and Tammy (Sarah Paulson).
