The Ocean’s 8 PR machine is starting to ramp up. Last week we got our first look at the poster for the movie, and today we have a brief, frenetic teaser clip to whet our appetite before the trailer drops tomorrow.
You get about a thousand images in this fifteen-second clip, and there’s nothing really substantial, other than the realization that this all-female Ocean’s soft reboot/remake/sequel thing has captured the proper tone. Oh, and there seems to be a shot of Sandra Bullock’s Debbie Ocean visiting the grave of Danny Ocean. Color me skeptical that he is dead.
Check it out:
The synopsis is short, sweet, and to the point: “A criminal mastermind and seven other female thieves try to pull off the heist of the century at New York’s annual Met Gala.” You don’t need much more than that.
Sandra Bullock leads the cast as the sister of Dany Ocean, played by George Clooney in the original trilogy. That feels like a perfect fit. Joining Sandy B is Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, Rihanna, Elle Fanning, and Sarah Paulson. That is quite the collection of talent.
Gary Ross (The Hunger Games) directs a screenplay from Olivia Milch. Ross is a pretty big shrug of a director but the cast should carry the movie anyway.
Ocean’s 8 will hit theaters June 8 next year, right in the heart of summer movie season.
