Ocean's 8 Trailer

Steven Soderbergh scored a hit with his updated remake of Ocean’s Eleven, with George Clooney leading an all-star cast as they pull of a daring heist in the remake of the Rat Pack flick. The films played it loose and fast, relying on the cool demeanor of its stars to exude their charms as Soderbergh set up all the pieces of these heist jobs. The sequels were widely criticized for their exotic locations, many claiming they were nothing but an excuse for lavish paid vacations but the sequels weren’t perfect but they were fun.

Years after Clooney and Soderbergh have hung up their tuxedos, there’s new gang of thieves being assembled with Ocean’s 8, an all-female reboot of the series that sees Sandra Bullock taking over as the leader of the pack. Of course, she’s bringing with her an all-star cast to support her on a criminal heist, this time targeting the Met Gala in New York City. Today brings us the first trailer of Gary Ross‘ film, and the results are, well, quite cool. Joining Bullock on her heist is Cate Blanchett, Mindy KalingAnne HathawaySarah PaulsonRihanna, and Awkwafina.

The trailer for Ocean’s 8 does seem to highlight that kind of effortless cool that defined Soderbergh’s Ocean’s films, with Nancy Sinatra’s “These Boots are Made for Walking” providing the cool backdrop to the setup promised in the slight taste of the heist film. If there’s any reason to be apprehensive about Ocean’s 8, it’s not the cast but director Gary Ross (The Hunger Games, Free State of Jones), who is kind of a serviceable journeyman that doesn’t have the track record on par with Soderbergh.

Up until this point, Ocean’s 8 has avoided the kind of man-child rage that greeted the all-female Ghostbusters from the moment it was announced. I hope it continues to remain this way, though there’s one shot in the trailer that I fear may raise the ire of some devotees to Soderbergh’s Ocean’s films (but they’re probably not as persistent and childish as the Ghost-bros). But we won’t know just how high the stakes are until Ocean’s 8 lands in theaters on June 8, 2018.
