Ocean's 8  Trailer Shows Women Could Dominate Another Summer Box Office 

Ocean's 8  Trailer Shows Women Could Dominate Another Summer Box Office 

Oceans 8

The movie stars Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Sarah Paulson, and Mindy Kaling in what looks to be a heist/action flick to rival those of the big boys.

On the heels of a stellar year for women in film that included the success of Wonder Woman last summer and Lady Bird last fall, the highly anticipated heist movie Ocean's 8, featuring a killer cast of women, has dropped another trailer in anticipation of the film's June 8 release.

The new trailer, set to the Linda Ronstadt classic "You're No Good," features Sandra Bullock's Debbie Ocean (sister of George Clooney's Danny Ocean), fresh off of a five-year-plus stint in prison and planning a massive heist to hit the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Among those who stand to put a cool $16.5 million in their pockets if they pull off the gig are her most trusted ally, Lou (a wonderful trouser-sporting Cate Blanchett); Tammy (Sarah Paulson), recently retired from the criminal life; Mindy Kaling as the jewelry maker Amita; tech expert Nine Ball (Rihanna); pickpocket Constance (Awkwafina); and the quirky seamstress Rose (Helena Bonham Carter). Anne Hathaway stars as Daphne, the actress whose necklace they conspire to pocket during a major gala.

Hunger Games helmer Gary Ross directed the film, but producer Steven Soderbergh, who directed the male-centric Ocean's 11-13 movies, is completely on board for the women of Ocean's 8 to carry on the high jinks.

"Wow, we may have gotten really lucky here in terms of the zeitgeist,'" Soderbergh told Yahoo News. "The pleasure of seeing this particular cast share a frame is going to be amplified by what's going on culturally right now."
