The series Ocean & # 39; s Eleven has historically focused on the achievements of its male characters, groups of men who join to throw caution to the wind, but the sequel to Ocean 8 recalls the series as an exclusively female work. As detailed in the film's latest trailer, Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock), Danny Clooney's "separated sister", Danny Ocean of the trilogy, begins writing his star list to achieve a jewelry heist at the Met Gala In New York. Your goal: a $ 150 million necklace worn by a character played by Anne Hathaway.
When filmmaker Steven Soderbergh composed Ocean & # 39; s Eleven in 2001, he was writing about a 1960 film that was best known for presenting artists such as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis, Jr. As a result, it supplied the cast with the that looked modern. Rat Pack day equivalents: actors like Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon. As the franchise restarted until 2007, he tried to exude the same kind of retro arrogance, although sometimes the movies seemed to be doing little more than brushing the charisma of movie stars. As a concept, he began to feel antiquated instead of retro. The interpretation of screenwriter Olivia Milch for Ocean & # 39; s 8 offers the opportunity to see all the conceit in a different context.
Judging from the latest sequel breakthrough, the franchise's wit and dry humor are in the foreground, anchored by a truly top-notch cast that also includes Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Rihanna, Sarah Paulson and Awkwafina.
Ocean & # 39; s 8 is scheduled to arrive at theaters on June 8.
