The Ocean’s collection of star-studded crime comedies started in 2001 with the smash hit Ocean’s Eleven and resulted in 2007 with Ocean’s 13. Now, just a little over a decade later, the crime comedy collection is returning with a brand new forged and caper. Subsequent summer time’s Ocean’s Eight falls into that new and more and more utilized class of movies which might be neither remakes, reboots or direct sequels. This semi-sequel truly takes place in the identical universe because the earlier movies as star Sandra Bullock defined:
We’re not a reboot. We’re only a that is what’s occurring in 2017. It isn’t even a passing of the torch. It is a parallel story of one other member of the family that was raised in the identical household Danny Ocean was and what occurs when Debbie steps out of jail with all of those superb, highly effective ladies.
This adjoining sequel looks like an fascinating method to go. A religious successor with an in-story connection to the Ocean’s Trilogy respects and acknowledges what got here earlier than whereas nonetheless permitting the movie to forge its personal path ahead, unburdened by any sense of measuring up. Setting this movie in the identical universe will hopefully enable Ocean’s Eight to face by itself. None of those characters are changing the present ones from the Ocean’s Trilogy, so there should not be fixed comparisons drawn, that means the brand new characters ought to be capable to really shine. This additionally permits for callbacks and cameos from characters from the Ocean’s Trilogy like Carl Reiner’s Saul Bloom in addition to cameo-king Matt Damon, who can even be making an appearance (probably reprising his function as Linus Caldwell). The brand new crew of thieves is made up of an all-star feminine forged together with Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling and Rihanna. Sandra Bullock additionally spoke to Entertainment Weekly and defined just a little bit extra about her character Debbie Ocean, who brings all of them collectively.
Sure, I’m Danny Ocean’s sister. I have been incarcerated for about 5 years and you discover out why in the course of the course of the movie. I imply, that is kind of a tiny subplot. However that is, you recognize, however I am undoubtedly his sister and we undoubtedly come from the identical household and we’re each excellent at what we do in our personal particular approach. So you may solely think about that after I get out, that is when the heist ensues.
Man, this Ocean household has a major problem with recidivism. They get out of jail and all the time have a contemporary crime deliberate, like instantly. What was the parenting like in that household? Whereas their morality is likely to be just a little hazy, thievery continues to be a life talent I suppose and takes a sure work ethic. The thieving in these movies seems like a number of onerous work and Ocean’s Eight can be no totally different. Debbie Ocean and her crew can be pulling off a daring, and I think about elaborate, heist at New York’s famed Met Gala. There they are going to be trying to liberate a priceless necklace from the neck of a star. This venue will give the movie the chance for lots of enjoyable celebrity cameos together with Olivia Munn and James Corden who may very well have a sizable role within the movie.
