Ocean’s 8 Teaser Is Stylish, Shiny, and Curious

Recommended Videos

A full-length Ocean’s 8 trailer is set to drop tomorrow, but Warner Bros. has released a teaser trailer beforehand. It begins with Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett eating at Veselka in NYC (I am already on board) as Blanchett’s Lou asks Bullock’s Debbie Ocean, “Why do you need to do this?” As with most of the Ocean’s series, the answer is rarely simple.

The heist in this installment involves the New York City’s annual Met Gala, so you can bet there are some amazing suits, outfits, and jewelry. We get brief glimpses at this amazingly star-studded cast that includes Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, and more. Everyone looks amazing and stylish and clever and I can’t wait for this film.

Now, Debbie’s response to Lou’s question might be, “Cause that’s what I’m good at”, but one quick shot suggests more. Near the end of the teaser, she has a drink in front of what looks like a grave site and it reads, “Danny Ocean 1961-2018” in reference to George Clooney’s character in the earlier installments. Clooney was born in 1961 and the film comes to theaters June 8, 2018. Could the heist be connected, or is this more of a continuing-the-family-business kind of thing? Was there a narrative reason to kill of Danny Ocean? (Is he truly dead?) We’ll just have to wait and see.

What did you think of the teaser?
