First Look at Ocean’s 8

If you are confused if this is maybe another sequel to the widely popular Ocean’s Eleven and wondering why it is not called Ocean’s 14 then let me be the one to inform you that it is in fact a remake of Ocean’s Eleven starring and all female cast. In the classic Ocean’s Eleven, the story focused on some of the best thieves who pull off the ultimate heist in a Las Vegas Casino. In this version it will be starring Sandra Bullock in the all-female reboot and will be titled Ocean’s 8.

I know you may be nervous about this reboot but take a moment and look at the widely popular and successful reboot of The Ghostbusters. If this movie happens to be just as successful then we may be in store for more reboots of this nature.

Details of the movie are a bit on the small side but here is what we do know:

Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) will be assembling a specialized team to pull off one of the greatest heists of all time. The score is the Met Gala in New York City. I am sure we will be given examples of how it was never done before or how people failed in the most spectacular ways possible. The photo released for Ocean’s 8 gives us fans the chance to scrutinize and speculate about all involved.

In the photo we have Cate Blanchett who will be Lou and rumors are that her and Bullock will be the leads of the group and basically playing the Rusty and Danny characters. Keep in mind that Matt Damon will be making an appearance as Linus so it should be interesting to see how this plays and who exactly Debbie Ocean is in relation to Danny Ocean. Hopefully they are siblings which will be fun to see that dynamic in future movies if we are lucky.

Sarah Paulson (Tammy) looks like a well put together thief that probably has the most amazing skills. The question is how does she know Lou and Ocean and why does she feel the need to join the group and go for this crazy heist. Sarah Paulson is known for her various roles in American Horror Story. Next in the picture we have Anne Hathaway as Daphne Kluger. I do not know about you but every time I hear Hathaway’s name I think of the Princess Diaries. We all know that she is so much more than that role and her portrayal as Catwoman had fans seeing a more criminal side to her so have faith that she can be a top notch thief in this reboot as well. Frankly it would be no surprise if she ends up in a cat suit at some point during the movie.

Rihanna will be playing Nine Ball and with a name like that she must bring some very unique skills to the team. Is she the computer expert or the demolition man; either way it should be interesting to see Rihanna flex her acting chops yet again on the big screen. Awkwafina (Constance) is pretty in pink in the picture and may be the wild card of the bunch. Mindy Kaling (Amita) seems like the true con artist of the group and will bring a great presence to the cast. Last but not least, Helena Bonham Carter as Rose rounds out the group of thieves. She will probably be the most enjoyable to watch on screen and frankly will bring a lot of fans to the movies.

At this point there is very little known about the film but the movie will have a heavy amount of celebrity appearances from Anna Wintour, to Kim Kardashian, to Kylie Jenner. The movie will be at the MET Gala so the potential for celebrities strolling the red carpet through this movie is huge.
