Ocean’s 8: Poster, TV Spot, and Sandra Bullock Talks Teaming Up the Ladies

We have new poster for Ocean’s 8 that features all of the leading ladies on the picture. It’s not that different from other posters but it’s always nice to see that many ladies on one poster.

Next, we have a short new TV spot for Sandra Bullock’s Debbie Ocean to talk about how long it took her to come up with this heist idea.

Bullock recently spoke to In Style and was asked about bringing a group of ladies to a genre where women are object to be stolen.

I always said I want what the guys get to have—whether I’m doing an action movie, a comedy, or a sexy heist film. I’m like, “Why can’t we ladies have that?” I told Jerry Weintraub [the film’s original producer, who died in 2015] I don’t care who it’s with as long as the ladies are all lovers of women and we get back the character Yen [Shaobo Qin, the contortionist from the Ocean’s Eleven films]. I just want Yen.

Bullock is also a longtime friend of George Clooney and now she gets to play his sister in a spin-off.

George and I have known each other since before we had careers. He was always the funniest dude in the room. He would have a little tequila and do a wicked Buddy Hackett impression that would make you wet yourself. … But, really, all he worries about is “Are you guys getting what you need?” It’s pretty ego-free of him. He had his trilogy. Now he has a new trilogy with [his wife] Amal and two babies.

So it sounds like we can probably rule a Danny Ocean cameo out of Ocean’s 8.

Summary: Debbie Ocean gathers a crew to attempt an impossible heist at New York City’s yearly Met Gala.

Ocean’s 8, directed by Gary Ross, stars Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, and Helena Bonham Carter. It will be released on June 8th.
