Warner Bros. is going full speed ahead with their Ocean’s Eleven spinoff, Ocean’s Eight, and the studio has just taken to Twitter to show off the first official poster for the heist flick.

Check it out below:

We admittedly had some real doubts going into this one. Studios had tried their hand at taking premises originally meant for an all-male cast and gender-swapping it.

While we can definitely understand the desire to be more inclusive, it is often at the detriment of the material. Plus, why not give these women their own amazing franchise to spearhead rather than give them the sloppy seconds?

Regardless, this brand new poster is promising. With a single shot, they’ve managed to recapture the spirit of the Ocean’s Eleven franchise, all while hinting that the film will still have its own unique flavor, given the all-female cast. It also helps that the cast they’ve assembled — which consists of Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Helena Bonham Carter, Rihanna, and Awkwafina — is quite the star-studded one. It doesn’t feel like they’re phoning this one in.

The only question we have left is whether or not George Clooney and co. will make some sort of appearance.

    They did an excellent job of blending together a list actresses I love and actresses I can’t stand. So I’ll give them that at least! I had to look up who Awkwafina was though.

    Ocean’s 8, because last year’s Ghostbuster film worked so well.

      That’s racist.

    Replace Rihanna with Zoe Saldana and Awkwardfina with Rinko Kinkuchi.

    I will pass on this…it might work but I have to agree that look what happened to Ghostbusters

    Well, I could not be more disinterested….
