Warner Bros. has released a 15-second teaser for “Ocean’s 8” ahead of the full trailer, which will be released Tuesday. The big reveal from the teaser asks the question: is George Clooney’s character Danny Ocean dead?
At the 10-second mark in the trailer tease, Bullock’s character, Debbie Ocean, is seen standing in front of a grave with the name “Danny Ocean” inscribed on it, stating that he died (or faked his death?) in 2018.
The crime caper, a spinoff of the “Ocean’s 11” franchise, is directed by Gary Ross. He has described it as a continuation of director Steven Soderbergh’s “Ocean’s 11” trilogy, which starred Clooney, Brad Pitt, Don Cheadle, Matt Damon and Julia Roberts. Along with Bullock, “Ocean’s 8” also stars Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Anne Hathaway, Cate Blanchett and Sarah Paulson.
“Ocean’s 8” will hit theaters on June 8, 2018.
The three previous “Ocean’s” movies combined to make $426 million domestically and $1.1 billion worldwide. 2001’s “Ocean’s 11” was a remake of a 1960 film of the same name starring Rat Packers Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop and Peter Lawford.
The logline for “Ocean’s 8’ reads:
“The tide will turn as Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) attempts to pull off the heist of the century at New York City’s star-studded annual Met Gala. Her first stop is to assemble the perfect crew: Lou (Cate Blanchett); Nine Ball (Rihanna); Amita (Mindy Kaling); Constance (Awkwafina); Rose (Helena Bonham Carter); Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway); and Tammy (Sarah Paulson).”
