Ocean’s 8 Has Best Debut of Entire Series

"Ocean’s 8,” the Sandra Bullock-led, all-female spinoff of “Ocean’s Eleven” has opened to $41.5 million from 4,145 screens. Though the “Ocean’s” trilogy, which came out from 2001-07, posted higher openings if inflation is taken into account, “Ocean’s 8” has the best raw launch in the franchise. As expected, female audiences have shown up in droves to see the likes of Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Sarah Paulson, and Rihanna pull a heist on the Met Gala. SF Gate reports opening night demographics from CinemaScore show that 69 percent of moviegoers were women over the age of 25, with audiences giving the film a B+, the same as “Ocean’s Eleven.”
