Ocean’s 8 bands together for all-femme thievery in first trailer
“Every cons has its pros,” says the marketing for Gary Ross’ long-gestured “Ocean’s 8”. It also happens that, in the movie, the thieves are a band of women, led by Sandra Bullock’s Debbie Ocean, who are to steal from—get this!—another, very wealthy woman (Anne Hathaway). Because feminism, right?
Politics aside, the film promises a no-frills heist movie where women, this time, pull the heist. And if Melissa McCarthy could pull off a very good spy movie in an aptly but ironically titled “Spy”, surely a pack of lionesses with the likes of Rihanna, can do it too, right? Okay, probably not. But if the trailer (embedded above) is any indication, it definitely looks like a fun time.
Directed by Gary Ross, the film boasts an all-female cast, including Bullock, Hathaway, Rihanna, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham-Carter, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, and Akwafina. It opens across PH theaters come June 13th.
