The original Ocean's trilogy, based on the 1960 Rat Pack film, is celebrated in part for its impressive ensemble cast, which included George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon and Julia Roberts. Now its spinoff, Ocean's 8, assembles a formidable team of its own in the final trailer.
Ahead of the film's release on June 8, new footage provides a roll call of the new crew. Led by Sandra Bullock's Debbie Ocean, sister of original franchise protagonist Danny Ocean, the team consists of Cate Blanchett's Lou, Mindy Kaling's Amita, Sarah Paulson's Tammy, Awkwafina's Constance, Rihanna's Nine Ball and Helena Bonham Carter's Rose. Also included is the target of the heist, Daphne Kluger, played by Anne Hathaway.
Fresh out of prison, Ocean assembles her roster with the singular goal of stealing a diamond necklace valued at $150 million worn by Kluger at New York City's star-studded Met Gala. The new trailer depicts the thieves and con women doing what they do best, with Nine Ball hacking into secure systems while Constance employs sleight-of-hand tricks to steal access cards into the exclusive event.
"People who steal, man, they're just not trustworthy," sighs Lou to Ocean as the duo drive off.
With an impressive crew, Ocean stands to one-up her brother in one memorable night in New York.
Directed by Gary Ross, Ocean’s 8 stars Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Anne Hathaway, Awkwafina, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, and James Corden. It is produced by Steven Soderbergh who directed the classic heist trilogy. The film opens June 8.
