Hold on to your hats because Ocean's 8, the spin-off featuring an all-female cast with the likes of Sandra Bullock playing Danny Ocean's sister Debbie, Rihanna as Nine Ball, Mindy Kaling as Amita, Anne Hathaway as Daphne Kluger, Sarah Paulson as Tammy, Awkwafina as Constance, Cate Blanchett as Lou and Helena Bonham Carter and Rose, has just dropped its first poster and trailer.
The movie is set to hit US cinemas on June 8, 2018 (UK theaters on June 22, 2018) and it's safe to say that we can't fucking wait!!!

Barbadian pop sensation Rihanna is poised to break onto the silver screen in the upcoming reboot of the "Ocean's Eleven" trilogy series – Ocean's Eight. She shared the first screengrab from the upcoming film early this morning via her Twitter account:
What's the first thing you notice about the photo? George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon – the iconic trio associated with the recent Ocean's movies - are all conspicuously absent from the scene. And that's no accident...
Ocean's Eight boasts the franchise's first all-female cast, with massive Hollywood stars such as Sandra Bullock, Anne Hathaway, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, Awkwafina, and of course, Rihanna all on board.
The film is apparently already in post-production. It's scheduled to debut sometime in the summer of 2018, with a tentative date listed as June 8th.
In the new film, Sandra Bullock would seem to be something of a main character, as she reportedly plays the sister of Clooney’s character from the initial trilogy. Apparently, the plot will revolve around a heist of NYC's Metropolitan Museum of Art Gala:
Gary Ross (The Hunger Games, Pleasantville, Seabiscuit) is directing, and Stephen Soderbergh, who produced the trilogy, is back in the producer's chair for the new Ocean's installment.
Matt Damon has confirmed that he'll be returning for this film in a supporting role, while other members of the original cast have been tight-lipped.
It's rumored that celebrities such as Anna Wintour, Kim Kardashian, Katie Holmes, Alexander Wang, Zayn Malik and more will make cameo appearances in the film. Keep your eyes peeled for a trailer to be release soon, and do your best to ignore all the haters who will try to belittle the film based on its "evil feminist agenda".
