The caper is set: "Ocean’s 8" trailer debuts

Warner Bros. 2017/Barry Wetcher(NEW YORK) — It’s not Danny Ocean this time, but Debbie Ocean, who’s planning the heist in the just-released first trailer for Ocean’s 8.

The caper: steal a necklace worth $150 million from the neck of Daphne Kluger, played by Anne Hathaway, at New York’s Met Gala.  Sandra Bullock stars as Debbie — apparently, the estranged sister of Danny Ocean, played by George Clooney in the first three Ocean’s movies.  She’s just out of prison when she hooks up with Cate Blanchett’s Lou to plan the crime, and recruit the help — Mindy Kaling’s jewelry forger, Rihanna’s computer hacker, and a fashion designer played by Helena Bonham Carter, plus Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina and an apparently unspecified eighth conspirator — is it Hathaway’s Kluger?

Danny Ocean also has a brief cameo in the trailer.  His name appears on a slab of marble in a mausoleum as Debbie sits in front of it, sipping a martini.  Apparently, he died in 2018.  Or did he?

Ocean’s 8, also starring Richard Armitage and James Corden, opens June 8.
