The spin-off to one of the most successful heist trilogies, Ocean's 8. It will be interesting to see how the director director Gary Ross, who brought us The Hunger Games will do on the heist comedy. Instead of following Danny Ocean's (George Clooney) usual crew of cons, the film will feature new and interesting faces.
This all female cast will give a new twist to Ocean's film series. The cast that was chosen for the film, in my opinion, is absolutely perfect: heavy hitters and rising stars such as Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, and Rihanna. This heist team seems to be better than the men that became before them. These women will bring a new element to the film as they try to hit their target Daphne Kluger played by Anne Hathaway.
I'm excited to see how director Gary Ross and producer Steven Soderbergh will do with the story line and see what similar elements from previous Oceans films will be included. The pressure it on. The trilogy did successful as a whole, grossing $1.12 billion commercially, but the one they really have to compete with is the first film Ocean's Eleven (2001).
If you don't know if you're going to add this to your "must see" list, maybe the trailer will help you decide. If you already plan to go see it, do you think it'll be as good as the originals? We will see on June 8th.
