Oceans Eight starts filming this month and we now have a release date for the all female movie, June 8, 2018.  Now, just to be clear, this is not a reboot, like Ghostbusters, it’s part of the original Oceans Eleven franchise, set in the same world.

The Ocean’s Eleven spinoff stars Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Sarah Paulson, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling and Awkwafina.

Other than that, not much info is known.  The plot is a closely guarded secret, and no character descriptions have been released.  I’m sure information will leak from the set during filming but, until then, patience is a virtue.

Frankly, I like the new trend of trying to keep as much as possible under wraps until it’s time to kick the marketing machine into high gear.  I also appreciate trailers not coming out a year or more ahead of the movie.  Three to six months lead up is fine, three being better than six.
