New Trailer Drops For Ocean's 8, Starring Rihanna

The first official trailer for Ocean’s Eleven spinoff, Ocean’s 8, has been released.

Starring as the ‘8’ are Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Awkwafina and Sarah Paulson.

It will center on Bullock as the sister of George Clooney’s character from the original film as she assembles her crew for a heist at the Met Gala.

Here’s the official synopsis: Five years, eight months, 12 days…and counting. That’s how long Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) has been devising the biggest heist of her life. She knows what it’s going to take—a team of the best in their field, starting with her partner-in-crime Lou Miller (Cate Blanchett). Together, they recruit a crew of specialists: jeweler Amita (Kaling); street con Constance (Awkwafina); expert fence Tammy (Paulson); hacker Nine Ball (Rihanna); and fashion designer Rose (Bonham Carter). The target is a cool $150 million dollars in diamonds—diamonds that will be around the neck of world-famous actress Daphne Kluger (Hathaway), who will be center stage at the event of the year, the Met Gala. The plan is rock solid, but everything will need to be flawless if the team is going to get in and get away with the ice.  All in plain sight.

Supporting actors include James Corden, Dakota Fanning and Olivia Munn, and there will be star-studded cameos from Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Katie Holmes, Anna Wintour, Matt Damon and Carl Reiner.

The film will be released June 8, 2018.
