The Ocean’s 8 trailer is finally here, and it stands as a great expression of female empowerment, bringing together some of the biggest stars in the world, among them Rihanna, Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, and Anne Hathaway. Serving as both a sequel to and spin-off of George Clooney’s Ocean’s trilogy — which grew from 11 to 12 to 13 — it casts Sandra as Debbie Ocean (sister to Danny), and sees her bringing together a gang to pull off a heist at the Met Gala in New York. Viewers will get a chance to see the film when it’s released on June 8, 2018.
In describing the premise of the film, Highsnobiety reports Sandra saying, “It’s a parallel story of another family member that was raised in the same family Danny Ocean was, and what happens when Debbie steps out of jail with all of these amazing, powerful women. We don’t want it to be just for women. This is not a man-hating. We love the men. There’s men in this movie. We love them. But this one heist needs women.”
And what follows is a quick guide to who these women are and what they have to say about Ocean’s 8.
