Forget casinos and banks! The ladies of Ocean's 8 have their sights set on a much larger prize—diamonds, lots of diamonds. In the newest trailer, Danny Ocean's estranged sister (Sandra Bullock) makes her screen debut when she teams up with a group of highly skilled criminals to rob the Met Gala, one of the world's most highly surveilled parties. Bullock joins leading ladies Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, and Helena Bonham Carter to take the party's elite down.

Historically, the Ocean's movie series has been led by a male-dominant cast. In the '60s version of the film, the Rat Pack (Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, etc.) starred in the heist movie. Again, in the early 2000's, Hollywood's rat pack reincarnated (Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Matt Damon) grabbed the reigns, and the film was a blockbuster success. Now in 2018, director Gary Ross—best known for The Hunger Games—decided to give some leading ladies a chance.  Ocean's 8 debuts in theaters nationwide on June 8, 2018. Watch the newest trailer below.
