Ocean's 8 Movie Trailer

8 January 2018

Described as a spin-off from the Steven Soderbergh directed trilogy of films released between 2001 and 2007, Ocean’s 8 stars Sandra Bullock as Debbie Ocean, sister of Danny from the original films, who assembles an octet of crims, including Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling and Rihanna, to pull of a major heist at the Met Gala. That setting has allowed the film to cram in a number of cameos, with Kim Kardashian, Zayn Malik, Serena Williams and Vogue editor Anna Wintour all making appearances. Damian Lewis plays the film’s villain, while Matt Damon reprises his role as pickpocket Linus Caldwell.

Ocean’s 8 is released at a time when 'gender-flipped' reboots of films are becoming common in an industry seeking to sate a growing appetite for more female-focused fare. Last year saw the release of an all-female Ghostbusters reboot starring Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy, while remakes of "Splash", "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" and "The Rocketeer" are all currently in production.

Since the release of the movie trailer at the tail-end of 2017, there has already been much criticism from movie fans on social media for reasons why this movie has been made with an all-star female cast, that the idea is far from original, and could fall into the same trap as the rebooted 2016 "Ghostbusters".

Ocean’s 8 is released in US cinemas on 8 June 2018, and follows in Australian cinemas on 21 June and UK cinemas on 22 June.
