Warner Bros. has released the new trailer for the upcoming film, Ocean’s 8, starring Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter. Check it out above.

For nearly couple years now, we’ve known that we’d be getting a celebrity-packed spinoff to the George Clooney-starring Ocean’s 11. Except instead of a nearly all-male cast, we’d be getting an all-female cast of thieves to carry out whatever mission this is, and the leader would be Danny Ocean’s sister, Debbie Ocean.

I know, it sounds like another misguided genderswapped story. Why not give the talented cast their own franchise rather than giving them the sloppy seconds of an old one, right? Regardless, because of the talent involved — including director Gary Ross — it’s worth at least giving the film a shot.

So how does this trailer hold up? It definitely has that classic Ocean’s 11 feel to it, which is a great thing. Additionally, based on this trailer, I got the distinct impression that this one holds up incredibly well on its own — spinoff or not.

But of course, when it comes to capers, it’s easy to sell those in a trailer. The true test will come when the movie actually hits, and its convoluted narrative can be seen in full. What do you think of this trailer? Let us know down below!

Ocean’s 8 hits theaters on June 8, 2018.
