My question about Ocean’s 8 is: is there any other reason for its existence other than a gender swap? This ensemble has a stellar cast of some of the best actresses alive, and is the best Hollywood can do is to write them a gender flopped version of something that worked really well with guys (this IS related to the Ocean’s franchise, though Matt Damon’s part in the film is now in jeopardy given his involvement in what we’ll call for brevity “The Weinstein Vortex of Ick”)? Apparently, from the trailer at least, yes, all Hollywood has the brains to do is make an Ocean’s film with actresses and not deviate even a little from that template. I hope it’s better than the first look, because these women are better than hand me downs. Ocean’s 8 will open June 8, 2018.
