Women are having a moment in Hollywood.
They wish they weren’t, of course, because this moment is sadly based on the fact that so many have been mistreated and harassed by so many men across the entertainment industry.
But at least the perpetrators of these horrific acts are finally being outed and brought to some kind of justice.
Next summer, meanwhile, women will have a different kind of moment in Hollywood.
It will be far more entertaining and lucrative and, simply based on the trailer below, totally and completely awesome/
Indeed, the first preview for Ocean’s 8 has arrived, as Sandra Bullock leads an All-Star cast of actresses in a version of the Ocean’s 11 franchise that was led by George Clooney and Brad Pitt.
In this case, Bullock takes on the role of Debbie Ocean, the sister of Clooney’s Danny.
There’s a hint in the trailer that Danny may be dead, but the focus thankfully isn’t on those past films… but on the updated installment and its ridiculously terrific array of stars.
There’s Cate Blanchett, who will serve as Bullock’s sidekick.
There’s Mindy Kaling, who will play a jewelry forger.
There’s Rihanna as a computer hacker… and Helena Bonham Carter as a fashion designer.
Sarah Paulson is also on board as a housewife who gets dragged back into a life of crime.
The Ocean’s franchise, of course, is all about pulling off elaborate heists — and Ocean’s 8 has quite the event in mind:
Bullock and her team will plot to steal a VERY expensive necklace off the person of Anne Hathaway at the annual MET Gala in New York City, which means we’re in for cameos from Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift and others.
Just as there was for the all-female version of Ghostbusters, stupid backlash has already started against Ocean’s 8.
Fortunately, Bullock always knew there would be and she isn’t going to let it get her down.
“There should be a rule, you’re not allowed to say anything nasty until after it comes out,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “Obviously, that’s never going to happen.”
Sad, but true.
Ocean’s 8 comes out on June 8, 2018.
