After the 1960 original was forged into Steven Soderbergh’s slick, stylish and incredibly classy remake featuring an A-list class that included George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon to name a few, and two sequels slowly saw the steam running out, you wouldn’t have been a fool to bet that casino money on the franchise having died a dead – but that bet on black would have seen you walking away empty-handed.
Handing it over to the ladies, Ocean’s 8 is well and truly on its way and it features one hell of a cast that takes on Clooney and co in the high-profile stakes.
With star Rihanna releasing the first look at this new band of ragtag money-chasing schemers, we get an idea of just how much these ladies are going to glam up and look to utilise their immense knowledge and sheer beauty to get ahead in the game. Featuring Sandra Bullock as Danny Ocean’s estranged sister Debbie, the cast is filled up with the likes of Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter, Awkwafina, Sarah Paulson and of course RiRi herself. Now there’s a line-up!
