The trailer for Ocean’s 8 has arrived and it looks just as epic as we imagined. Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna and Mindy Kaling take starring roles in the all-female reboot of the original action comedy classic, which is set for release on 22 June 2018 in the UK.
Ocean’s 8 will see Debbie Ocean (Bullock) assemble a group of ladies to pull off a near-impossible heist at the annual Met Gala in New York City. The first official trailer, debuted on 19 December, shows Debbie released from prison and begin putting her plan in motion by approaching Rihanna, Kaling, Blanchett and Sarah Paulson’s characters with her proposed plans.
The teaser clip has received a warm response from social media with many already predicting its success. One Twitter user commented: “RiRi already delivering iconic lines.”
Another tweeted: “Cate blanchett, sandra bullock, rihanna, anne hathaway, sarah paulson, helena bonham carter, mindy kaling and awkwafina are coming to sAVE 2018 AND SHOW HOW POWERFUL WOMEN ARE.”
One another fan weighed in: “Sandra, Helen, Cate and rihanna, in one mother fucking movie? Hell mother fucking yes!”

Making reference to the speculated Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o movie project, another theorised: “Imagine if in 2019 they release that short film with Rihanna and Lupita as a sequel to Ocean’s 8.”
Revealing what it was like to work on the Ocean’s 8 set, Bullock previously told Entertainment Weekly: “It’s really fun. Imagine all eight of us crammed into a makeup trailer in the morning. You think that it would be disastrous, but it was heaven, all of us just sharing information, all of us doing three jobs with families, our other jobs, the juggling. And then we get to shoot this movie together.”
The epic Ocean’s 8 cast includes: Anne Hathaway, James Corden, Matt Damon, Awkwafina, Helena Bonham Carter, Olivia Munn, Katie Holmes and Dakota Fanning. Kim Kardashian is also expected to make a cameo appearance.
