The Ocean’s 8 Trailer 2 is here and although it seems that it’s a cool follow-up to the beloved Ocean’s Eleven trilogy, one can’t help but think that this is straying close to Ghostbusters territory. No disrespect to the all-female cast but piggy backing one of film’s best heist movies is a tall order and one that the Ghostbusters reboot suffered greatly from.
Nevertheless Ocean’s 8 is made and its coming soon (June 2018 to be exact) so just hold your breath and hope this one’s good as, if not better than, the original.
Five years, eight months, 12 days…and counting. That’s how long Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) has been devising the biggest heist of her life. She knows what it’s going to take—a team of the best in their field, starting with her partner-in-crime Lou Miller (Cate Blanchett).
Together, they recruit a crew of specialists: jeweller Amita (Mindy Kaling); street con Constance (Awkwafina); expert fence Tammy Sarah(Paulson); hacker Nine Ball (Rihanna); and fashion designer Rose (Helena Bonham Carter). The target is a cool $150 million dollars in diamonds—diamonds that will be around the neck of world-famous actress Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway), who will be centre stage at the event of the year, the Met Gala.
The plan is rock solid, but everything will need to be flawless if the team is going to get in and get away with the ice. All in plain sight.
