Last year around this time, photos of Rihanna and Sandra Bullock, costars in Ocean’s 8, eating Papaya King hot dogs together circulated the internet and made my heart skip a beat with pleasure. The Texas, ‘90s thriller badassness of Sandra Bullock combined with the utter Rihannaness of Rihanna? A real dream team.
And now the perfect end to 2017 is here in the form of the Ocean’s 8 trailer. Because you can’t pull off a massive heist without at least 8 celebrities, this is a truly STAR-STUDDED cast. We’ve got Rihanna as a stoic hacker, Cate Blanchett, Sarah Paulson, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, and Anne Hathaway.
This time, instead of robbing a casino, Sandra Bullock is leading a $150 million jewel heist at the Met Gala and can you even imagine what Rihanna will be wearing in those scenes. This also means there will be even more celebrity appearances. The male cameos are limited to Matt Damon’s pickpocket extraordinaire and James Cordon (for some reason).
Directed not by Steven Soderbergh but by Hunger Games’ Gary Ross, Ocean’s 8 will hit theaters June 8, 2018.
