Oceans 8 || What All the Fuss Is About In A Nutshell
The Ocean’s 11 franchise was rebooted on June 8th with the USA premiere of Ocean’s 8. Directed this time by Gary Ross, the glittery cast was almost blinding. With heavy-weights such as Sandra Bullock (who plays the lead role), Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter, Awkwafina and Sarah Paulson the question remains will the movie ever match up to its cast?
Traditionally the Ocean’s franchise has been celebrity-heavy and very male-dominated. Ocean’s 8 would probably have faced some serious backlash from a 2018 movie that wasn’t gender-balanced. The reboot, the change in director, the celebrity female cast, and all the talk about gender may possibly take the thunder away from the movie itself.
In total the cast includes, 3 Oscar winners, an Oscar nominee, one Grammy winner, an Emmy winner, a SAG award winner in addition to cameo roles by none other than Serena Williams, Anna Wintour, Tommy Hilfiger and Kim Kardashian.
Time will tell whether or not the cast was a blessing or a curse, in the meantime however let’s have a look at all the fantastic looks from the red carpet.
