The cast of Ocean’s 8 surprised everyone today when they revealed the poster for the long-awaited film, and the first look is even more spectacular than anyone could have imagined.
Sandra Bullock stars as Debbie Ocean, who is the estranged sister of George Clooney’s character Danny Ocean in the original Ocean’s trilogy. Whilst there are not a lot of details as to what the film will entail, we do know that she enlists the help of seven other con artists to pull off some sort of big job.
The seven people she hires are played by Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter, Sarah Paulson and Awkwafina.
Are you ready?
Here it is.

The poster is bold and could not be more of a perfect fit for a film starring actors that are all strong, powerful women in their own right.
The sunglasses and the big coats really are the cherry on top, and also, can we just talk about how great that tagline is? I mean “every con has its pros”, like come on, how great is that?
Of course, people showed their excitement on Twitter as soon as it was revealed.
I've been ready my whole goddang life https://t.co/VCP17emi8G

After everything that has come out having to do with #MeToo
Seeing a poster of strong, beautiful, amazing women is pretty awesome.

The all-female iteration of the Ocean’s movies was hatched by Ocean’s Eleven director Steven Soderberg and Hunger Games director Gary Ross, with the hopes of jump-starting a new franchise.
Earlier this year, Rihanna shared the first pic from the film, showing the über stylish criminals riding the subway. How lucky were they to get a whole carriage to themselves, we wonder?

Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner have landed cameo roles (ugh why?), and James Corden will also be in the film in a supporting role.
With the movie set to be released mid next year, surely we won’t have to wait too long before a trailer drops.
To say that we are excited would be a complete understatement.
