A second Ocean’s 8 trailer was released yesterday. Feast your eyes upon the official full trailer for Ocean’s 8, the female-led reboot starring: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter, Sarah Paulson, and Awkwafina. Oh, and James Corden is present as the film’s token male. While the teaser trailer gave us a glimpse at each character’s personality (Bullock as ringleader Debbie Ocean, Hathaway as the snooty actress, and so on), the new trailer lays out the plot more firmly and lets us into the wider world of this lady-led remake. Here’s the setup: the team is going to lift some very expensive diamonds from the star-studded Met Gala, in a heist that will earn each of them $16.5 million apiece. “Why do you need to do this?” Blanchett’s character asks Ocean as the pair tuck into a meal at Veselka, a New York institution.
“Because it’s what I’m good at,” she replies. Simple as that! Listen, if you find out you have a gift for relieving others from their fortunes, then you should ignore that urge . . . but if your last name is Ocean, you are required by movie law to lean into it. It’s hard to say who’s having the most fun in this trailer. Perhaps it’s Blanchett with her dramatic bangs and perfect coats. Perhaps it’s Hathaway vamping it up as Daphne Kluger, the self-absorbed starlet whose dialogue mainly consists of “ooh” and “aah.” Perhaps it’s Rihanna, who gets to play cool computer hacker Nine Ball and show her technologically challenged colleagues how to turn devices on and off. Or—cue the after-school special music—it’s all of us, who get to sit back and enjoy this much-needed future masterpiece, which hits theaters on June 8.
