First trailer for Ocean’s 8 walks all over us

OCEAN'S 8 - Official 1st Trailer

Good heist movies are becoming few and far between, and when they do land they’re usually a smaller affair. That’s what made the original Ocean’s films so much fun. They were good heist films (to varying degrees) with a plethora of big names pulling them along. Hopefully Ocean’s 8 can live up to the same standard. It’s got the cast, of course. Now they just need to nail the magic that is a quality heist. 

In case you’re wondering, Sandra Bullick is Danny Ocean’s (George Clooney) estranged sister. I don’t thinks he’s ever been mentioned before so I’m thinking this isn’t the start of some big cinematic universe, but more of an excuse to do more heist films with big name stars. Works for me as long as it doesn’t suck.

Also, the tagline “Every con has its pros” is pretty damn clever.
