Ocean’s 8: Let the Publicity for All-Female Heist Picture Begin

Warner released the highly anticipated official trailer for Ocean’s 8 on December 19.

Sandra Bullock stars as Debbie Ocean, the estranged sister of Danny Ocean (played by George Clooney in the previous three “Ocean’s” films), in the female-led heist comedy.

The movie centers on Debbie’s attempt to pull off the heist of the century at New York City’s annual Met Gala.

The star-studded includes big film, TV, and music stars: Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, and Awkwafina.

The trailer opens with Bullock in an orange prison jumpsuit at a parole hearing and promising to pursue “the simple life” if she’s released. Then we see the star meet with her would-be counterparts in a planned $150 million jewel heist.

“Why do you have to do this?” Blanchett’s character asks Bullock’s Ocean.

Hopefully, the film will be more successful–artistically and commercially–than the all-female Ghostbusters.
