Channel 24 – It’s been more than 10 years since an Ocean-led crew has conned their way to millions of dollars.
Now a new gang is banding together to carry out the ultimate heist.
WATCH THE TRAILER HERE:
Joining Bullock as the title eight are Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter.
Paulson who plays Tammy a former black market traded who has traded the black market for the supermarket. She looks for all the world like a typical wife and mother unless you look in her garage, full of stolen merchandise.
Sarah sat down for a Q&A about her role in the film, the dynamic between the cast and what it was like to film at The Met Gala.
What drew you to Ocean’s 8?
One day, [screenwriter / actor] Danny Strong, who wrote Game Change and was good friends with [Ocean’s 8 director/co-screenwriter] Gary Ross, texted me, asking if he could give Gary my phone number. Gary called me about two minutes later, and then within a few days, he sent the Ocean’s 8 script to me. Gary then asked if I wanted to be a part of it – as if I could say no!
As the cast of “Ocean’s 8” wraps the film, an incredibly emotional James Corden, who can’t help but look back and think of all the great times they had, embodying every feeling in Vitamin C’s classic “Graduation (Friends Forever).”
Sarah Paulson, Sandra Bullock & Awkwafina also chatted with James about the movie.
Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, and Awkwafina sit down with Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb to talk about their heist film “Ocean’s 8” and the challenges faced by women in Hollywood, including the pressure to be thin: “The big elephant in the room is the media,” Blanchett says. Kaling calls the film “a great summer movie.”
On Tuesday, Sarah and the Ocean’s 8 cast walked through the red carpet during the world premiere in New York. Now we’re getting the first movie reviews from Top Critics. Here are some of them:
VOX — Ocean’s 8, at its most endearing, is a slick, glamorous romp that makes you yearn for three more hours with its impossibly charismatic crew.
Blanchett, Paulson, Kaling, and Rihanna could spend the whole movie heating up pizza rolls and folding laundry, and it would still be entertaining. Watching these actresses hanging out together is inherently fun.Read full review
Variety — The heist is fun and convincing without being dazzling, and some of the most amusing stuff in the film is just character comedy. Read full review
IGN — Ocean’s 8 is the most satisfying installment in the franchise. The all-star cast is impeccable, the shift in focus yields sharp insights, and the heist itself is wily and enjoyable. Read full review
The Playlist — Ocean’s 8 is the self-aware frosé of movies; a summer delight, perfectly airy and refreshing, it’s not here to be your cinematic think piece. Ocean’s 8 knows exactly what it’s doing and what it’s trying to achive– showing the audience hell of a good time – and it succeeds marvelously at it, without leaving the audience feeling duped.

Today is the world premiere of ‘Ocean’s 8’ happening in New York at the Alice Tully Hall. Sarah Paulson alongside co-stars Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Anne Hathaway, Awkwafina, RIhanna, Mindy Kaling and Helena Bonham Carter walked though the red carpet. Our gallery has been updated with high quality images and we’re going to update this post as soon as we have more pics and videos to post.
Sarah Paulson is killing me. I’ve asked to read the text chain she has going with her Ocean’s 8 co-stars (weeks before it was reportedly deleted), and though she’s given me a firm “nope” because she doesn’t “want to get kicked off the chain,” she’s now holding her phone a foot-and-a-half from my face, offering a glimpse of the thread but scrolling too quickly for me to actually fix my eyes on a single word.
“There’s hearts,” she narrates. Swipe. “We’ve got Helena Bonham Carter giving us some emojis.” Swipe. “Mindy Kaling hearting things.” Swipe.
I stop her. Was that a photo of Rihanna in her new lingerie?
“Yeah, probably,” she says. “But then there’s also this.” She scrolls back to what looks like a dollar-store ad for nasal spray, moving her screen a cautious few inches closer to my face. I assume it’s a meme (earlier she’d told me Anne Hathaway “is the meme queen” of the group) but struggle to decipher its meaning. That’s because it’s not, in fact, a meme. “This is a sinus rinse that we can use if we’re feeling stuffy and puffy,” Paulson explains.
While a recommendation for “saline nasal irrigation” is hardly as provocative as Rihanna in lacy underthings, Paulson says it sums up what one might find in what she calls the “Ladies of O8” chat if one were allowed a proper perusal. “We had a press day where we were all involved and it was sort of like, ‘Well, what does one wear to these things?’” Paulson says. “Everybody started firing off, ‘I’m wearing pants,’ ‘I’m wearing a skirt.’ It was a very typical girlfriends thing to do.”
